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.
Procida is an Italian island that lies in the Bay of Naples in the south of the country. The island is situated between the Italian mainland and the larger island of Ischia and has a more authentic and charming feel that the more popular islands of Capri and Ischia. The island's main settlement, Procida Porto, is located on the island's north eastern shore and is where ferries to the island dock and where buses depart to travel around the island's road network. The oldest parts of Procida Porto was built on a high headland in order to provide some form of defence from invaders. Residential dwellings can be found all over the island, but at the southern end of Procida Porto is another more concentrated settlement, called Chiaiolella. A small curving islet, called Vivara, lies alongside Procida and is now a nature reserve. The rest of the island is somewhat built up and has a fairly large amount of land devoted to agriculture.
Ferries to Ischia generally stop at Procida. There are both fast and slow services, and some run from a different port in Naples, called Mergellina, which is handy for the Italian railway network. Procida is also served by ferries from a nearby town on the mainland called Pozzuoli.
