Sorrento things to do


Visit an idyllic island getaway and explore the magic of Capri. This renowned island has long been a destination of the rich and famous and with its quaint, cliffside towns you'll see why. Stroll the attractive streets, relax on unrivalled beaches, shop at exclusive designer stores and discover the sprawling ancient Roman villa, Villa Jovis, that once housed Emperor Tiberius.

Mount Vesuvius

Hike Mount Vesuvius, the active volcano responsible for the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Explore the unique volcanic landscape and marvel at its lunar feel, and thanks to well-defined paths, you can even journey to the crater's edge! Enjoy panoramic views of the Bay of Naples and gaze at the ruins of Pompeii from above.

Piazza Tasso

The main square of Sorrento, Piazza Tasso is a great place to sit back with an espresso and watch the world go by. Ornate buildings line the street and you'll find a lot of historic attractions in the wider area around the square too. Visit the nearby museum of Correale and the town's oldest church, Basilica di Sant'Antonino.

Pompeii and Herculaneum

Explore the archeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, two ancient Roman cities destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and both hold important historical artefacts. It's a fascinating and eerie experience to walk the ruins and there's enough interest to warrant a whole day at each place.

The Amalfi Coast

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its outstanding beauty, the Amalfi Coast runs along the southern edge of the Sorrentine Peninsula. Featuring pastel coloured villages, sheer cliffs and spectacular beaches with crystalline waters, this area is the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
