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.

What people are saying about Sorrento

Fabulous day, on Fabulous Boat, Fabulous Crew

Well worth the money, would highly recommend. Extremely fabulous service, from pick up direct from hotel to return in the evening. Sail was the most enjoyable part of the day. Capri extremely busy and in my opinion overrated but then I can say I have been.

Loved our trip to Capri, would definitely recommend it!

Our day was well organized by the friendly staff. From pick up to drop off. Rossella, or skipper, was so knowledgeable and shared the vast history of the island with us. We loved the half day tour and would highly recommend it.

Great trip! Mario and Giuseppe were awesome.

Great way to see Capri and Anacapri from Sorrento. Marina was much farther from hotel than expected.
