Overlooking the Bay of Naples and the Isle of Capri, Sorrento is the perfect base from which to explore such sites as Pompeii, the ancient Roman city that was engulfed by Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79 and Capri, a mountainous island a few km off the coast with a reputation for glitz and glamour.
While spending time in the City of Sirens, take a trip along the scenic Amalfi Drive, a narrow road winding along the high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea, wander around the quirky cobblestone alleyways in the small tourist centres, or sip some of the local limoncello and sample some local pizza at an al fresco café with spectacular views over the Bay. Keen to sample some authentic gelato? Pop into Raki on Via San Cesario for the best pistachio ice cream in town. There’s also some unusual flavours like carrot and almond. It’s a feast for dessert lovers.
