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

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.

Capri Boat Tour from Sorrento for Under 30’s Reviewed by Anonymous, 09/08/2019

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

Full-Day Amalfi and Positano Boat Tour from Sorrento Reviewed by Anonymous, 09/10/2019

Trip was great and guides were entertaining

The trip was great with nice time in the boat and swimming in ocean....Capri part felt too rushed as I would have liked to spend more time there....we had 4 hours in town but the lines for bus were long so We had less time for touring. I would highly recommend this trip if you only have one day for Capri....but if you have the time I would recommend spending at least two days in Capri

Sorrento to Capri Island FD Semi-Private Excursion Reviewed by Anonymous, 09/06/2019

the overall trip was good but not good value for money

Would have been better if sights pointed out along the way. boat pilot not very communicative. Not good value for money.Only offered one drink- beer water or coke and one shot of limoncello. I would have expected drinks incusive for whole trip considering the cost of the trip. Also would have expected lunch included. we just got small tomato and mozzerala roll. disappointing.

Amalfi Coast: Full-Day Cruise from Sorrento Reviewed by Susan, 09/13/2019

Such a great insight to what life was like 79AD

Brilliant tour, our guide Lucia was brilliant had such knowledge of what happened at that time. Explained about the buildings & who lived there & how; small details that you would miss probably if you did it without a guide. Really didn't have any questions by the end as she had covered everything! Can not recommend this enough
