Visit the stunning seaside town of Sorrento. Nestled in the picturesque and historic Bay of Naples, it is the perfect base for exploring places such as Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. However, while it provides a beautiful place to explore from, the town itself is a destination worth visiting!

The centre of the town is marked by the beautiful Piazza Tasso. The historic square is lined with cafes and restaurants providing locally sourced wines and foods that will make your mouth water.

The surrounding hills are home to the olive and lemon groves which provide the ingredients for the famous locally produced olive oil and limoncello. Visiting the groves and the factories provides a glimpse into the lives of the locals and the industries they thrive off.

If you are interested in history, the Oscan ruins dating back to 600BC might spark your curiosity! These ruins are only the beginning of the rich history that Sorrento offers. From pre Roman ruins, to 14th century churches to its historic port, the town is a history enthusiast’s heaven. But let’s not forget about how close the town is to the famous Pompeii!
