The Italian town of Sorrento is located in Camania in southern Italy and overlooks the Bay of Naples. There are many amazing views from the town towards the city of Naples, Vesuvius and across to the island of Capri. As it is close to Naples and Pompeii and at the south eastern end of the Circumvesuviana railway line, Sorrento is a very popular tourist destination. The town is also on the Amalfi Drive which is an 80 km narrow road that follows the coast's high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea between Sorrento and Amalfi. Aside from the beautiful towns and villages along the road, the road itself is a popular tourist attraction in its own right because of the spectacular views to be had.
The town itself does not have a great deal of attractions to offer and is therefore principally used by tourists as a base from which to explore the surrounding areas. Although, the 14th century Chiesa di San Francesco, with its flowery cloister, is worth visiting. There is also a small garden next to the church which has spectacular views across the Bay of Naples and is a good place to stop for a little peace and quiet. South of Corso Italia there is a medieval cathedral, and more of the town's history can be seen at Museo Correale, near the station.
From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.
Castellammare de Stabia, usually referred to as just Stabia, is located in the province of Naples in the Campania region of southern Italy. The town is around 30 km to the south of the city of Naples and lies on the shores of the Bay of Naples. Destroyed in 79 AD by the Vesuvio volcano eruption is the nearby ancient Roman city of Stabiae which is a popular place to visit. Here visitors will see ;lovely architecture, many churches and significant works of art of the old town centre, all of which combine to make the area the perfect location for a bit of history and to relax on the areas lovely beaches.
From the town's port, ferries depart to Capri and Sorrento. Along with passenger traffic, the port is also used for commercial cargo shipping and for fishing vessels. The port is also the third largest port in Campania after the ports of Naples and Salerno.
