Sorrento is one of Italy's most stunning destinations, cascading down a steep hillside and spreading across the clifftops above the Tyrrhenian Sea. With ferry links to Capri and Ischia, easy road access to the Amalfi Coast and Naples, and fast rail connections to Pompeii. The town overlooks the Bay of Naples, with fantastic views across the water to Mount Vesuvius. The old town is a warren of narrow streets lined with small shops and hole-in-the-wall Cobblers. Stretching from the seafront onto the main street, it's the ideal shopping location.
The streets of Sorrento come alive at night thanks to an array of restaurants and bars. In the summer months the locals will fill the outside terraces of the cafes and restaurants creating a bustling atmosphere, particularly around the pretty main square, Piazza Tasso. For a seafood supper, head down to the waterfront Marina Grande, where you'll find a selection of wonderful fish restaurants. We stayed here in June 2017 and we used the Michelangelo Hotel which is a four star hotel. It's ideally located within a short walk to the centre. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are very friendly.
