Planning Your Sorrento Visit

What to eat in Sorrento?

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.

Sorrento and Amalfi Coast Small Group Tour by Boat Reviewed by Jessica, 28/04/2019

Tour with amazing views and excellent guide and driver!!

Our guide Daniela was amazing! She explain us everything and was open to all of our questions! Being peruvian (speaking spanish) and taking the tour in english was no problem because Daniela explain all in a very clear english. Our driver Ciro was excellent in keeping us very safe in the Amalfi coast highway that was very dangerous because it has a lot of curves. Highly recommended to take this tour because you are relax, you can appreciate the outstanding views and you had an excellent guide and driver! Also I recommend to take the optional boat experience in Amalfi. Many thanks to Daniela and Ciro for the amazing experience we had visiting the Amalfi Coast!!
