Lovely Sorrento Walking Tour

Summary

Enjoy a guided walking tour of the beautiful and historic centre of Sorrento. Walk down cobbled streets, see fantastic architecture and maybe taste some local limoncello.

You’ll meet your guide in the main centre called Tasso square for a relaxing walking tour through Sorrento. Even if nowadays this summer retreat is so trendy, at the same time is a very ancient town: traces of the Greek colonisation are still preserved. The Greek layout of the historical centre with its cobbled streets filled with little cafes, restaurants and shops selling typical souvenirs or local produce is the perfect setting for a glimpse into the past.

Upon request it’s possible to stop in a limoncello factory on the way for tasting the famous digestive made with the special lemons of Sorrento.

The tour continues to the old town: your attention will be captured by the Seat Dominova, where the noble families of Sorrento used to meet. The imposing Bell Tower of the main church of Sorrento will also catch your eye.

You’ll be amazed by the breathtaking view of the Bay of Naples as soon as you get to the public gardens, this is the best moment for panoramic shots! Near the entrance of the gardens you’ll see the cloister of Saint Francis, a lovely quaint courtyard dating back to the 14th century. Here you will see the different architectural styles that characterise it and during the summer, you may catch a glimpse of some events that are hosted there, usually weddings or concerts of classical music.
At the end of the tour you can decide for a walk on your own but don’t miss a delicious ice cream in the centre of the town before leaving!
