    An amazing place - a natural lake between the rocks. A roman ruins there were also interesting to see. You need to go early - in the morning as it gets crowded around lunchtime. Nice experience to go off the touristic routes and enjoy the nature’s beauty

    It's the center of Sorrento . . . very busy place. Cars driving every which way, people walking somewhere, mostly tourists. If you come to Sorrento, you start your exploration here.

    I stared out in Rome expecting it to be the best part of my trip. Nope, to my surprise Sorrento was my absolute favorite. It was more of what I expected Italy to be. With all the narrow streets and vendors. The Lemoncello, the lemon cakes. The Sea Wall. Swimming in the Sea.
    Just a wonderful experience.

    .The cloisters of San Francesco can be entered through an opening on the right just before you enter the Villa Comunale gardens. You walk from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento into an oasis of calm and if you are lucky like we were, you will have them to yourselves for a period of time.
    Then I also would currently recommend following the signs to the art gallery on the second floor. At the moment there is an exhibition of black and white photography by the Sorrento born Raffaele Celentano which is 5Euros to see and gives a brilliant pictorial display of the street life of ordinary people in Southern Italy. Then beyond the gallery is the viewing platform with its splendid tree and swing and I defy anyone to not try and re-enact Celentano’s iconic photograph of the Nuns playing on the swing.

    Lovely view, nice spot with cafes and easy but steep walk down to the port and beaches, or a lift at a small charge if you prefer.

    Excellent town, plenty to see and do. Staying in Grand Hotel Hermitage which was a 15 minute drive, the hotel had a free shuttle bus. When not on an excursion we were in the town. Favourite bar was the English Inn, the staff were brilliant and the drinks and food were not to costly but were of good quality. Would visit Sorrento again but in a hotel that was in the town.

    Taking a walk along this street will reveal many extra windows of interest and utility, including the site of the post office! Do venture into the various side streets from this main street, as many good restaurants and interesting shops are hidden in them.

    Was closed so could only view from the bridge but worth going to as it’s right in the city centre and is quite unique sitting between the cliffs. Viewing at night can give an eerie feel.

    You will find this to be a long steep and challenging gong walk so wear appropriate clothing and bring water. Was it worth it? Probably not.

    Great experience on 31st of August at Leonelli's beach. The staff were friendly and helpful the location was great. The price for 2 beds and a shade on the beach was reasonable. We had visited other bathing platforms during our holiday in Sorrento , such as the terrible , Marmeo beach, but Leonelli's was really good with a special mention for the beach manager who was helpful and nothing was to much trouble for him.
    Great day. Thanks

    This Catholic cathedral is dedicated to St James & St. Philip & is located just off the Corso Italia.
    Although it is more of a church than a cathedral, it is nonetheless very beautiful and very spiritual. Rebuilt in the Romanesque style, you can admire the exquisite paintings and architecture in relative peace and quiet. If you like this sort of experience I recommend a visit.

    Just a perfect day with lovely people. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful day in the Sorrento mountains with a absolutely amazing local farmer family, where we learned how it is to be an Italian farmer. Vineyards, animals and almost every fruit/vegetables you could dream of was a part of the trip together with cheese- and pizza making.
    A must do trip if you love to learn about cultural differences and for my girlfriend and I who lives a “big city life” normally, we loved this.

    Currently the three tenor tour is based out of here. It is a fantastic show in a marvellous building. We'll worth the ticket price
