Italian culture, buzzing bars and delicious pizzas are all on the menu on holidays to Sorrento – a sophisticated seaside town in the heart of the Neapolitan Riviera.
Sorrento’s postcode is the envy of Italy’s coastal resorts. It perches high above the Bay of Naples, backed by fragrant orange and lemon groves. The centre’s a hive of activity, but most eyes are turned towards the outlook. You can spy Vesuvius on the horizon from plenty of its cafés, rooftop bars and marinas.
Hustle and bustle
The town’s web-like streets are hemmed with lemon-scented shops, gelato bars and pizzerias. And there are easy-on-the-eye gems around every corner, from the 14th-century Cloister of San Francesco to the Il Vallone dei Mulini – a forest-covered valley in the middle of town. Plus, the daytrip options are endless. Ferries, trains and coaches whisk eager-to-explore tourists to Capri, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast.
Sorrento doesn’t do beaches. Instead, it’s decorated its seafront with stylish lidos and two bustling harbours. Marina Grande makes a peaceful retreat from Sorrento’s wide-awake centre. It’s full of pastel-painted houses, colourful fishing boats and traditional trattorias. Lots of them come with wooden jetties, so you can dine on fresh-from-the-net seafood with Vesuvius in sight.
