Sorrento Coast

Sorrento Coast is one the of most appreciated coastlines in the world!

The Sorrento Coast is a jagged promontory that shores up the southern end of the Bay of Naples. This peninsula of hilly terrain ends abruptly at a cliff that plunges sheerly down to the Mediterranean sea. The entire coastline around Sorrento was a Greek colony during the period of Magna Grecia, the legendary site of Homer’s sirens, before being conquered by the Romans who enjoyed the area as a summer playground. It has maintained a reputation as an exclusive resort destination ever since. It boasts a mild climate, gorgeous panoramas and citrus-scented air.

What’s in Sorrento Coast? – From the Sorrento Coast, views sweep along the bay to Naples, Mount Vesuvius and across the water to the island of Capri. Sunset is especially stunning from the point of Massa Lubrense, Faro, or one of the coves below the cliffs on the promontory’s edge. On the Sorrento coast you’ll find tucked-away bays, deep gorges, sandy sunbathing spots and hilltop hamlets.

Terraced farms grow a riot of lemons and oranges, as well as olives and grapes. Sorrento is especially known for its lemon production, which is used to produce the famed liqueur known as limoncello, but it goes into desserts like sorbetto, crostata, and breakfast cakes, too. Being seafaring folks, the local cuisine centers of fresh seafood, but baked gnocchi and Naples-style pizza are common specialties as well.

While the Mediterranean is the big draw that made Sorrento famous, there are hamlets in the hills that should be explored, too. These time-worn villages maintain their traditions and their charm. Visit Vico Equense, which is dwarfed by the Lattari Mountains that rise up behind it, the village of Seiano, the white-washed town of Priora and Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi, high in the hills. Up here you’ll find natural beauty, hiking trails, tranquility and clean, dry air.

Sorrento itself may well be the ideal destination, as it offers seaside splendor coupled with easy access to other points of interest: you can take a train to Pompeii or Naples, a ferry to Capri, and buses or boats to the other towns strung along the Amalfi Coast… Book your Sorrento Private Tour Driver!
