A pretty clifftop town with rolling hills and gorgeous views
The gorgeous town of Sorrento is perched atop rocky cliffs on a beautiful headland and boasts breathtaking views over the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Breathe in the fresh fragrant air that drifts across rolling hills from the clusters of orange and lemon groves and explore the old town's winding maze of narrow cobbled alleyways.
Best time to visit
April to October is the ideal time to visit Sorrento as the days are brighter and enjoy more sunshine. From November to March, beaches and outdoor pools are not operational.
Sip an Italian coffee at one of the many bustling pavement cafés and watch the world go by or feast on sumptuous local dishes whilst drinking in panoramic bay views.
