This little corner of Italy really packs in the sights. The stunning Amalfi Coast stretches south from the Sorrento Peninsula in all its dramatic glory. Lush forested mountains plunge steeply into the ocean, fringed by pastel-hued villages and sandy coves - this truly is picture-postcard Italy.
Sorrento peninsula has a landscape unique in the world, where low and high hills, deep valleys and majestic mountains alternate, where the man’s work - who levelled even the most impervious areas, transforming them in the famous terraces degrading towards the sea, on which he cultivated orange and lemon trees, olive groves and vineyards - has been grandiose. These are the delightful gardens that in spring time exhale a stirring scent of orange - blossom. The mild and dry climate for most part of the year makes Sorrento peninsula the ideal destination in every season.
Sorrento is a lively town that masterly combines its maritime and rural identity to the role of active trade centre of the Peninsula. High walls that once enclosed old citrus groves run along narrow lanes that cross its low hill. Piazza Tasso is the main focal point of Sorrento with restaurants and bars surrounding the square, making it a great place to relax with a glass of wine or coffee and people watch
And Sant’Agnello, on the tuff ridge right on the sea, enchanted the royal family of the Bourbons and the princes of all Europe, who built there fabulous villas. And, just on the sea, surrounded by hills, appears Sorrento, international town, with its old city centre, its sea-shore, its citrus groves. Finally the pleasant Massa Lubrense, extreme border of the Peninsula, just in front of Capri, a natural oasis with countless foot-paths among ancient farmhouses, archaeological areas, Mediterranean bush and indescribable landscapes, on enchanting sea and beaches.
Sorrento makes an excellent base for excursions with Pompei, Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius being some of the most popular. Beautiful scenery guaranteed.
