Sorrento is situated on the south west coast of Italy, laying to the north of the ‘heel’ and bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The ferry routes departing the port are to other coastal resorts in Italy, as well as to neighbouring islands.
Sorrento is one of the rare examples of a coastal town that lacks a proper beach, however, there is something quite magical about the overhanging cliffs that afford a spectacular view of the endlessly beautiful sight of the azure blue sea. The rugged mountainside dominating the shoreline is symbolic of the entire town; a simplistic, no-thrills image that remains true to its authentic self, yet adheres to the growing rise in tourism. A few souvenir shops have sneaked into the town centre, though they are a cut above your typical tacky display, selling unique antiques and bespoke clothing.
The architecture and infrastructure are quintessentially Italian; the Cattedrale di Sorrento and Chiostro di San Francesco are remarkable piece of structural design, epitomising the historical culture resting in the region. The buildings may exude a quintessential Italian heritage, but if you were to head to the restaurants you’ll find the desire to appeal to tourists; menus in restaurants are in English and the businesses operating in the town are generally designed to appeal to English tourists. Other nationalities are represented in the region, creating a diverse mix in beautiful Italian surroundings.
Local buses cover most of the popular areas, though most choose to cover the compact town centre by foot. Taxis are also readily available for quick and convenient transport.
