Luxury Sorrento Holidays

Sheer cliffs and sunny piazzas

Sorrento

Sorrento holidays take you to Italy’s spectacular Neapolitan Riviera, which is known for its pretty towns and historic architecture. Sorrento is a lively seaside town with excellent cuisine and a thriving culture just waiting to be discovered. Here you’ll find a mixture of authentic Italy and chic modern hotels and bars, perfect for couples and families alike.

Spend your days wandering through the narrow cobbled streets of the town, stopping off at traditional pizzerias and street side cafés. Enjoy excellent Italian coffees or fine local wines as you watch the world go by, or shop in the many boutiques which are peppered throughout the town. If you want to discover the rest of the Amalfi coastline, there are plenty of pretty towns within easy reach. Hire a car and visit idyllic Amalfi town where you can take in historic buildings and the glittering seas below the cliffs, or visit Ischia for thermal spas which date back to the ancient Romans.

Flight Information

Flights from the UK to Naples (Sorrento's closest airport) take around 2 hours 45 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Naples airport to Sorrento is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. 

When to go

It will be no surprise that Sorrento’s summer months attract the crowds. It’s not hard to see why, with temperatures reaching 30 degrees – ideal for enjoying its lovely marina and lively al-fresco dining scene. Availability in the town can be limited in the summer months, so we advise booking early. Spring and autumn are equally as lovely, as the temperature cools down and the crowds thin out.

Visa Information

British citizens do not currently require a visa to visit Italy.

Tipping

When you dine out in Italy, you will generally be charged a coperto (cover charge), which is for the bread, tablecloth, cutlery, etc. Tipping in Italy is not customary, but is always appreciated.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
