What to see
Sorrento's main square is Piazzo Tasso and its vibrant restuarants, shopping and nightlife make it the ideal place to have a drink and people watch. Whilst here, wander over to the Chiesa del Carmine (Carmine church). Reconstructed in the 15th century it contains some wonderful paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries. Nearby is Correale Palace with its beautiful 18th century Majolica court, and is well worth a visit. Among the most popular things to see in the area are the ancient Roman fishing town of Herculaneum and of course to the magnificent ruins of Pompeii which was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79. Want to take a closer look at the volcano? It is a 20 minute walk from where the buses stop to the top Vesuvius where you can look inside the dormant crater, although descending inside is not permitted. Well recommended is a day trip to the island of Capri, just off the Sorrento peninsula. Enjoy the marvellous views of the Bay of Naples, explore the enchanting natural cave of the Blue Grotto or simply relax in a cafe on the Piazza Umberto I before the ferry trip home (around an hour's ride). Another must do is the 'Amalfi Drive', a stunning cliff top tour along the coast road from Sorrento to Vietri sul Mare. For something different, visit the picturesque coastal towns of Amalfi and Postiano.
