What To See in Sorrento

From Piazza Tasso, continue your walk down Corso Italia, the main shopping thoroughfare in the center of Sorrento, where locals go to see and be seen. Along the Corso, stop to visit Sorrento’s cathedral, then, at the end of the Corso, turn right and then right again…you’ll find yourself in the charming historic lanes of Sorrento’s old town.

 

Walk along Via San Cesareo, one of the oldest streets in town, until your reach Sedil Dominova. This was once the gathering place for Sorrento’s high society, and is now the headquarters of the Società di Mutuo Soccorso. From here, take Via Reginaldo Giuliani down to the entrance to the Villa Comunale park, where you’ll find the Church of San Francesco on your right.

Don’t miss the lovely cloister here, dating from 1300 and one of the most picturesque spots in town for weddings and photography exhibitions.

Once you’ve visited the cloister, take a walk through the lovely Villa Comunale, and snap a few pictures of the breathtaking view from here over the Sorrento coastline with Mount Vesuvius looming in the distance. From here, you can walk down to the port and beach clubs in Marina Grande below, or take the elevator.

We suggest, however, continuing your walk to Piazza Vittoria, another beautiful scenic overlook, and then following the road down to the historic fishing village of Marina Grande.
