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
Right from word go tony and co made us feel very welcome , even if we never brought them whiskey . The lesson was easy to follow and fun. The food we made and ate at the end was wow o wow ! Authentic and super tasty. There was optional Wine through out the class , but we preferred just water which was not a problem. Tony has a wealth of knowledge on Italian food which he share with us through out the class, he also answered all questions we threw at him. If I ever return I will visit Tony and co again for sure!
The tour was superb...well organized as well... lunch was ok but the nice thing was that the drink was included in the meal...bottles of drinking water were distributed freely in the bus.. Our guide Veronica was lovely...very accommodating and well informed..she made the tour even more interesting... One point to note:- the start time of the tour was mentioned as 8am and we were given a pick up time of 8.30am.. the coach eventually arrived at around 9am, reason given was there was traffic..
I cannot fault this tour. The lady guide was so hospitable and made the tour very interesting, and the use of a headset ensured we could always hear her, as it was crowded. Also having the entry ticket included in the price, saved a lot of queuing to enter the site. I would highly recommend this tour & company.
Would thoroughly recommend! Lovely people run the tour. Friendly and helpful. It was a great day . My only small negative which is why it doesn’t get a 5 star is the pace set by the guide is quite brisk and it made it difficult to stop to take pictures of the beautiful views
This was a fantastic trip from start to finish. Sebastino looked after us so well and took us to incredible places for swimming and going into caves. Both myself and my boyfriend loved it and can’t recommend it enough to others! 100% worth the money!
