About the location
From its prime clifftop position, Sorrento has wide-angle views across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius. Palms and citrus groves cluster around grand villas and elegant hotels, and along the spaghetti-thin lanes of the old town you’ll find tiny trattorias and a generous helping of shops (bottles of limoncello, brightly painted ceramics and bespoke sandals are all must-buys). The main square, Piazza Tasso, is the place to head for a morning espresso, while the waterfront Marina Grande is the ideal spot for a dinner of freshly netted seafood. Sorrento’s location also makes it the perfect springboard for exploring more of the Neapolitan Riviera. Amalfi Coast towns like Positano and Ravello are in easy reach, as are the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Hop on a boat, meanwhile, and you can skim over to the islands of Capri and Ischia.
