Holidays to Piano di Sorrento are typically Italian, defined by the purr of Vespas and coffee breaks on the piazza. Daytrips to nearby Capri and Pompeii are on the cards, too.
Piano di Sorrento
The terracotta-topped houses and fluffy green trees in Piano di Sorrento immediately let you know you’re in Italy. Delve deeper, and you’ll find winding streets dotted with espresso bars, and cute-as-a-button eateries serving up straight-to-plate seafood.
Marina di Cassano
The beach scene here is poles apart from the golden swathes of Puglia and Tuscany. Instead, Piano di Sorrento is home to a petite curve, which sits in the tiny village of Marina di Cassano. It comes with silver-coloured volcanic sand, emerald-tinted shallows and look-twice views.
Close by Capri
The oh-so-pretty island of Capri’s a perfect daytrip option. It bobs not far from the tip of Sorrento’s peninsula, and boat trips leave daily from the nearby harbour. Ritzy eateries and designer labels are sprinkled around the towns, and the photo-worthy Blue Grotto’s tucked underneath.
