Things to do in Sorrento
Take a stroll out of the Hotel Conca Park and you’re in Sorrento’s centre within five minutes. The Piazza Tasso main square is surrounded by pavement cafés, restaurants and historic buildings, including a Baroque Church. Antique and craft shops line its maze of cobbled streets, and you’ll also be able to step back in time at the 11th-century Chiesa di San Francesco bell tower and monastery. Keep walking, and you’ll reach its white-pebble beach, where you can take a dip in the crystal-clear waters found here. And Sorrento’s surroundings simply have to be explored. You’ll find Capri, Positano and Amalfi all within an hour away. But for a truly memorable experience, take the 40-minute train ride to Pompeii, where time stood still in 79 AD, following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Surrounded by Mediterranean greenery in the midst of an historic and charming city, the Hotel Conca Park provides a holiday full of memories the whole family can treasure forever.
