The coastal town of Sorrento clings dramatically to a cliff between the stunning Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Stroll amongst lemon trees and wisteria, take in the dramatic views from a local café and hop on a ferry to the stunning island of Capri.
Sorrento is a small town on the south-west coast of Italy, 50 km south of Naples and easily accessible by train or ferry. It gets its name from the famous sirens of Homer's Odyssey, who according to legend sang so beautifully that they lured sailors to their death. Sorrento's beauty has certainly lured visitors from all over the world to marvel at the spectacular views of golden cliffs draped with colourful buildings and lush greenery, stretching into the distance over the deep blue Mediterranean Sea.
Sorrento has been a holiday getaway since the days of Roman emperors, several of whom built palaces on the nearby island of Capri to get away from the bustle of Rome. After strolling through the beautifully preserved medieval old town of Sorrento, try some local limoncello at a cliff-top café and walk down to the sunny harbour to watch the fishermen take in their nets. Hop on a ferry for a day trip to Capri, Amalfi or Naples and you'll understand why generations of Italians have taken their holidays in Sorrento on the Neopolitan Riviera.
