This is the very focal point of Sorrento. Somewhat of a controlled “busy” area. Lots of shoppers and sidewalk cafe goers. People watch here and enjoy a cafe or vino. From this hub you can easily meander the spokes to find great shopping for crafts...More

Good thing about this Piazza is that cars are prevented from entering at night. Not worth walking around in the day time, stick to the little alley ways during the day.

Piazza Tasso is a hive of restaurants, traffic and people. We were there at the end of the season in November and it was busy. I'd hate to see it in July.

Bar Ercolano is our favourite place on the Piazza Tasso; we went there at least once every evening. Great place to sit and enjoy all that's going on around you...especially the kamikaze scooter riders!

A great location to chill and people watch. Plenty of restaurants to have a nice coffee and cake. Or something to eat with a glass of fizz.

We were there on a Friday in early November and it was quite busy. There are a lot of cafes and shops nearby. Make sure you take time to look down into the ravine and walk over to the nearby parks.

We visited Sorrento in September/October of 2017. The accommodation was just on the Piazza through HomeAway and was all that was advertised. The location was perfectly central and we explored the area for 4 days, with trips to the Amalfi Coast and the Isle of...More

From where? If you are in Napoli or Sorrento, you can take the rickety but inexpensive Circumvesuviana train and get off at the Pompeii Scavi station and then it's a very short walk, well signed, to the ruins. If you really... More

just got back from 11 nights stay in Sorrento. I certainly wouldn't drive there. It's crazy! The tour guide we had for Pompei said there's a saying in Italy, "after me, everyone is first". She was referring to the queuing... More
