Sample a limoncello or a drink that favors the citrus flavor of a Sorrento lemon. The region has some succulent lemon trees. We also recommend trying the local olive oil while you're sightseeing in Sorrento.

How to get around Sorrento?

Sorrento on foot is very scenic but if your feet hurt hop onto a city bus or train. You can also hire a taxi. To take a day trip, we recommend the trains and buses, though renting a car could be a fun way to see more of the landscape.

What people are saying about Sorrento

Exhilarating boat ride to the beautiful Isle of Capri

After an exhilarating and somewhat wet! boat ride from waves crashing over the bow, we circumnavigated the Isle seeing various grottoes before arriving at the port of Capri. Free time allotted and a few hours spent exploring this gorgeous town, walking the beautiful alleys to the cliff top and then admiring the panoramic views from above. There was a small beach to enjoy lying on or a swim too. A fantastic day tour to a most stunning Isle.

A picturesque tour of the Amalfi Coast with plenty of time to enjoy

A fantastic day tour of the beautiful Amalfi Coast, photo stops and free time to enjoy the towns - Positano a particular highlight. Our tour guide was great and sharing interesting information about the region and the bus driver very talented in negotiating the challenging narrow roads. Thank you for an enjoyable day tour..would highly recommend.

Fantastic boat ride around Capri with our wonderful guide.

We had a great boat ride around the island. 4 hours to spend in Capri.. for us not much to do as we are not into shopping and one of us can't do heights. I later saw another excursion which offered a boat ride around capri and the amalfi coast which would have been more suitable. All in all, great experience and I would have wondered what we had missed in capri
