Say hello to... Sorrento
Sorrento is a spectacular stretch of coastline in south-west Italy, wrapping round the sparkling Gulf of Naples. Effortlessly elegant towns spill down colourful cliffsides, overlooking boat-filled harbours and vintage bathing platforms. The romantic allure of Sorrento holidays is truly timeless. Further south marks the start of the breathtaking Amalfi Coast.
- Food & drink lovers – Stir your senses with a taste of the region’s famous lemon liquor: limoncello. The sun-soaked lemons here are so sweet, and for the best buffalo mozzarella, you’re in the right place. Try some on a Pizza Margherita, another local creation. Grab a harbourside table for the finest setting.
- Sightseeing lovers – Over on the island of Capri, the Blue Grotto is an enchanting sight to behold. Head there on a boat and watch as sunlight peeps through the rocks and illuminates this stunning sea cave. Don’t miss out on UNESCO-stamped marvels back inland, for particularly remarkable historic gems.
- History lovers – The archaeological phenomenon of Pompeii is an absolute must-see on every Sorrento holiday. An ancient city frozen in time, you’ll be amazed by the well-preserved artefacts on show. Favoured by the rich and famous, the island of Capri oozes glitz and glam. Make like the jet-setters and sail across to this exclusive sun-drenched retreat.
