LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

From big luxury resorts to boutique hotels, Sorrento appeals to all. It's much bigger than the other towns along the Amalfi Coast & close to Naples. This makes it an ideal location to base yourself especially if you're short on time & prefer to just take day trips to Capri & Positano. Sorrento itself is beautiful & offers some amazing views, shops, bars & restaurants.

PIAZZA TASSO

Piazza Tasso is the main hub of activity in Sorrento. You’ve got leisurely locals milling around, visitors with their cameras out, horse-drawn carriages picking up & dropping off tourists, & a string of cafes & restaurants housed in grand sunshine yellow buildings. Stop for an espresso in the sun, or swing by later for an aperitif & watch the world go by.

SUNSET DRINKS

Head to Terrazza Vittoria at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria. Here you'll find a superb bar & restaurant set on Sorrento’s most iconic terrace, facing the sea and Mount Vesuvius. It is the perfect place to watch the sunset & if you're lucky, experience some live music. Be sure to reserve a table as it is a very popular spot. This was our favourite bar in Sorrento.
