Top attractions in Sorrento
Soak up the sunshine in Sorrento as you explore the home of the famous Amalfi Coast and taste a Sorrento lemon or three. Whether you hike Mount Vesuvius or choose to lounge on the beach, Sorrento is sure to please.
Soak up the sight of the sparkling blue horizon on the Amalfi Coast. Relax along the southern coastline of Italy on the beautiful beaches at Sorrento.
A central square in Sorrento, the Piazza Tasso, is named for the poet Torquato Tasso of the 16th century. The communal space is perfect for people watching over a drink or two.
If you climb to the top of Mount Vesuvius, make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Unfettered panoramic views await, and the hike is well worth your time. Mount Vesuvius is best enjoyed on a clear day, as fog can obscure the view from the peak.
Run around the hilly landscape of the Sorrento Peninsula and take in the sweet citrus rich air, while you admire the coastline.
Discover the port of Marina Grande on an evening stroll. The convivial atmosphere of the Marina Grande is the perfect backdrop to watch the sunset on Sorrento as you enjoy the sounds and smells of this secluded harbor.
A perfect day trip--hop over to Capri from Sorrento. You can visit the beach or go boating in the Blue Grotto on the coast of Capri while exploring the historic city center.
Take a train or bus to Pompeii and spend the day taking in the ruins in this historic ancient Roman city. Pompeii is a compelling archaeological site, simultaneously destroyed and preserved by the volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius.
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.
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
Vincenzo was excellent. The drive was very pleasant. He not only drove us safely to our destination, but he also threw in his "tour guide" skill!! We would highly recommend him. Thank you.
Our guide (Sabrina) was very friendly and knowledgeable and the driver (Lino) was very professional. We visited Sorrento (which was not listed in the tour description, so we got it as a gratuity, thank you Sabrina and Lino), Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. The lunch was decent and in a nice restaurant in Conca dei Marini with a beautiful view over the coastline. We had approximately 50 min per location for the visit so use your time wisely because it is running out very fast! Be prepared that you will spend half of the tour in the bus but then I cannot think of a better way to experience the Amalfi coast in such a short time. A small tip - if possible, sit on the right side of the bus and enjoy the ride (the views are much more rewarding compared to the left side).
A great day, from start to finish, our guide Marco, and the driver too, made the trip a very beautiful event, the coastline is just so stunning how could you go wrong... Do take the optional bost trip, for just a few extra euros, you get to see the coastline from a very different perspective... In short, thumbs up all around.. ☀️☀️
Myself and three friends went to Anna Maria's lovely B&B in the hills of Sorrento and had a lovely time making Panna Cotta, pasta - (tagliatelli & ravioli), a delicious chicken dish, sides and bread. It was very relaxed with red wine along the way and sitting down to eat what we had made at the end. I highly recommend the cooking lesson and also to stay in the beautifully located B&B. Very friendly people and great memory of Italy. Thank you Anna Maria and family and Kristina
Excellent tour! We were picked up at our hotel by van and we joined other group at Pompeii. There were 50 people but guide managed it quiet well. Please make sure that this tour doesnt include visit of Vesuvio. Luckily, we were able to buy this part right there. It comes with included small lunch after Pompeii.
