A popular tourist destination for its beautiful views, Sorrento is a small town that overlooks the Bay of Naples, Isle of Capri and Tyrrhenian Sea. This small and civilized old town has fewer than 20,000 residents, making it an ideal destination for Canadian travellers looking for a calm and authentic Italian cultural experience.
The town is known by many different names: Land of Mermaids, Land of Orange and Lemon Groves, and Land of Colors, to name a few. It’s also popular for its Limoncello liqueur, not to mention its cliffs and steep slopes that overlook azure water to Capri and the Bay of Naples. Whether you are sampling the Limoncello, fishing or exploring the region’s peninsula, it’s always a good idea to have travel insurance for your trip.
Top things to do in Sorrento
Sorrento is appealing to tourists because there are lots of things to do, and it can be reached easily from Pompeii and Naples. From great fishing and diving to boat cruises and challenging hiking trails across the peninsula, Sorrento is a great home base for exploring the region. The one thing the city lacks is a beautiful beach, because it is located on cliffs that overlook Mount Vesuvius and the water to Naples.
Some of the top places to visit include Amalfi Coast, a popular background for many TV series and movies, Marina Grande, the port of Sorrento, Villa Communale Park, Piazza Tasso, Museo Bottega della Tarsia Lignea, Museum Correale di Terranova and Via San Cesareo, Sorrento's main shopping area. You can also book various day trips and tours of the surrounding regions and cities.
