PIAZZA TASSO

The main city centre in Sorrento where all the restaurants, bars and historic buildings are. Get lost in the old city with history that dates back over 2,000 years ago.

It is named after the poet Torquato Tasso (1544–1595). 

 

In the center stands the statue of Sant'Antonino, the patron saint of Sorrento.

HAVE ALL THE PIZZA

Naples is the birthplace of modern day pizza. The dough is typically softer than the crunchy New York Pizza but if you want that crunch, Pizzeria da Franco located in the town center, offers that at an affordable price. 1/2 meter is good enough for two. 

 

Side note: Most places do not cut your pizza so it's not unusual if you have to use a fork and a knife to eat your pizza. 

 

Fun fact: It is said that the Margherita pizza was created and named after Queen Margherita who visited Naples looking for something different to eat. The pizza also represents the colors of the Italian flag. 

Buon Appetito!

Capri 

Feel like Italian royalty while visiting this island. There are luxury shops on
Via Camerelle, celebrity sightings and more. Visit the blue grotto which is a dark cave where the sea glows a vibrant blue and was once a swimming hole for Roman emperor Tiberius or sail through the Faraglioni Rocks while drinking prosecco. To think it is only a 30 minute boat ride from Sorrento! Ferries and private boat rentals are available.

Pompeii and Herculaneum Tour

Pompeii is the more famous archeological site but both deserve a visit. This site is about a 40 minute drive from Sorrento. You can organize a private tour if you wish.

On the way from Naples International Airport to Sorrento, you will see Mount Vesuvius which is the volcano responsible for destroying these two Roman cities after it erupted in 79 ad. Pompeii was the city most affected; buried under a thick layer of ash, pumice and mud freezing Roman life in time. You can see plaster-casts of human bodies in the exact position they were in when they died thanks to excavations that began in the 1700's.

Fun fact: Mount Vesuvius is still an active volcano.

Cacti?

Yes, there are beautiful botanical gardens filled with succulent plants and cacti on the island of Ischia: Giardini la Mortella and Giardini Ravino.

 

This volcanic island is also known for the medieval Aragonese Castle and hot springs with one of the largest spas in Europe. It is connected to the mainland, Sant'Angelo, by a small strip with beaches on each side where there are several beautiful hiking trails. 

It is about an hour boat ride from Sorrento.
