Sorrento’s cobbled streets are dotted with little shops and cafes, perfect for a leisurely breakfast and a bit of souvenir shopping. The town’s medieval churches are a must-see, many with classical works of art and colourful frescos. The scent of oranges and lemons fill the air as you wander through the local groves. Take a stroll down to the harbour and find a traditional Italian restaurant where you can dine on fresh seafood. Wash it all down with a glass or two of locally-made limoncello.

Sorrento is a great base for exploring the nearby towns.  Take a walk down to the harbour and jump on a hoverfoil or ferry to explore the island of Capri, just 20 minutes away. Catch the speedy Circumvesuviana metro train to visit the famous relics of Pompeii – you’ll need a good three hours to explore the area’s fascinating Roman relics. Hiking along the trails of the Sorrentine Peninsula is one of the best things to do in Sorrento. On your way up the sheer cliffs, stop to admire the azure blue Bay of Naples.

With piazzas filled with restaurants, the town centre is one of the best places in Sorrento to enjoy authentic Italian food. Sit yourself on an outdoor terrace, perfect for watching the locals go by. You’ll find fish fresh off the boat, rich and creamy cheeses, and plump olives on the menus here. Tuck into handmade pastas with fresh tomato sauce, or if you’re feeling adventurous, try the local dish of octopus stew. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dessert. Go for a local favourite, like fruity sorbetto or limoncello-flavoured gelato.

Wander through the narrow streets and along the seafront to find some of the best shopping. You’ll come across everything from ceramics to hand-stitched table cloths. Locally-crafted goods such as silk scarves, jewellery, and leather shoes make great souvenirs. Sorrento is well known for its wooden furniture and decorations, often with a geometric mosaic pattern. If you have a sweet tooth, check out the local delicatessens for freshly-made orange pastries, homemade gelato, and best of all, zesty limoncello liqueurs.
