Beautiful place

Called in here on arrival as next to the lift up from the harbour. The flowers and plants were lovely. We didn't bother with the museum as we had our luggage with us.

The Chiostro di San Francesco lies next to the church of San Francesco in the centre of Sorrento. The courtyard itself is worth a visit and is a destination wedding venue.

Recommended to visit by an Italian friend and I am so grateful we spent the time to find it. Situated in the heart of Sorrento not far from the bay we had a beautiful walk around the courtyard and cloisters. Will visit again next time we are in Sorrento

The architecture creates a calming little area that allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of Sorrento for a short time. There are exhibitions in the adjacent buildings.

The cloister is lovely and I have reviewed the gallery on its own listing, so here's the music box museum. A lovely lady was overseeing the room on our visit. As we ventured in she turned on boxes until we were lured right to the end, it was magical. She also appreciates the need to look after this exquisite creates... More
