Sorrento is a beautiful coastal town overlooking the Bay of Naples. Part of the ‘Grand Tour’ around Europe at the turn of the last century, Sorrento was a popular Mediterranean holiday town for literary celebrities like Byron, Tolstoy, Goethe and Dickens, among a host of other personages. Celebrated for its high cliffs and panoramic views of the Mediterranean coast, there’s much to savor of the town’s heritage architecture and laidback pace of the good life. Strolling around the central plaza or Piazza Tasso, surrounded by charming cafés, is a wonderful way of discovering the town’s distinctive air. The tranquil cloister and ornate medieval church of the Chiesa di San Francesco, grand medieval structures and artisanal shops are all worth a visit. Try dining alfresco, enjoying a delicious plate of gnocchi washed down with a bottle of wine at one of the many local restaurants lining the piazza. Travelers today also use the city as a transit junction to get to the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii as well as to Capri and Naples.
