Life here centres around Piazza Tasso – a picture-perfect square lined with grand old buildings and bustling cafés. Wander through the old town and you’ll uncover museums, galleries and leafy parks round every corner. Hop on the town’s wooden train to ride from sight to sight.
Beside the seaside
Meander downhill to discover the wowing Marina Grande – a boat-filled bay overlooked by family-run trattorias. Old-fashioned bathing platforms are the way to go for a spot of sun-soaking. Forged from wooden frames and limestone rocks, these retro runways come complete with the classic deckchair and beach hut combo.
Italian towns are usually packed with their fair share of ornate churches and Sorrento's Church of St. Francesco is no exception. Ivy-covered arches and beautiful perfumed gardens result in a heavenly retreat. The convent often plays host to regular art exhibitions and al fresco classical concerts, too.
