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.

What people are saying about Sorrento

Fab day trip. Well worth it to visit Amalfi coast towns in a day.

Collected from our hotel at the time stated. There were 6 people on the minivan tour plus the driver. Air con was a godsend. We had an hour to visit each of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, plus lunch was included at a hotel/villa in Ravello. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable and we felt safe when he was driving on the very narrow, winding, busy Amalfi coast road. It was long enough to have a snapshot visit of each place, as it was so hot and humid we were glad to get back on the van to the aircon. We had enough time to visit Amalfi cathedral at additional charge and Villa Ruffelo in Ravello. Each place was beautiful in its own right and the scenery en route is simply stunning. Well worth it.

Great day, informative and a must do when in the area

We arrived at Pompei early which was great - we got there before most of the crowds. Our guide, Laura, was great - really knowledgeable and highlighted all the key parts of the site educating us about the history as well. Would also recommend this tour as it was definitely worth visiting Herculaneum, which was very different to Pompei. We had pre paid the entrance fees but most people on the tour hadn’t - make sure you bring cash for this! Laura had a great temperament and did a really good job - she made the tour.

Enjoyable way to experience Amalfi Coast

A well organised tour, everything went to plan. We set off from the station in Sorrento. Initially it looked chaotic as there were so many of us but then four large mini buses arrived and each had names registered for them. Definitely worth taking the optional boat trip (12 euros) at Amalfi. The visits to Positano and Amalfi were about right for one day although perhaps would have liked a bit more time in Amalfi. All in all about right for the money. We did not regret it.

Great views and swimming, but not a great skipper

The boat tour was amazing, but our skipper did not seem very enthusiastic about the tour. He was a little bit rude and was not very engaging with all of us on the boat. The description said there would be snorkeling gear, but there were only 4 sets of goggles for 10 people. We had to ask to do the banana boat, it seemed like our skipper was just going to take us back to the dock and drop us off without the banana boat ride.

the boat trip was good the guide not so good

I felt the tour was well organise at the port , you had to while before you got on your boat , but facility's where ok. The boat was in good condition and the boat trip itself was good . The boat guide just listen to his music and smoked most of the time, popped his head out now again to tell us something about the island. You had 1 hour and a half to go around Amalfi and Positano which was a little rushed
