Sorrento

One of Italy’s most elegant cities
 
Overlooking the glistening blue waters of the Bay of Naples, elegant Sorrento is a delight. Spend your days soaking up its southern charm; take the train to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum; or choose from our three included walking trails, one of which explores the beautiful island of Capri.
 

Holiday information

 

Elegant Sorrento

A magnet for poets, artists and aristocrats over the centuries, Sorrento continues to attract visitors from around the world with its fascinating history and heritage; its elegant buildings and glamorous lifestyle; and the natural beauty of its peninsula, set against the dramatic backdrop of Mount Vesuvius.
A stay here is the ideal complement to our Amalfi Coast walking holiday – after crossing the peninsula on foot, taking in the startling coastal views and descending via softly sloping hills and centuries-old olive groves, you spend three nights close to the centre of Sorrento, perfectly positioned to savour the many delights of this alluring town.

Sorrento is well connected by train and boat – the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and the idyllic isle of Capri are all within easy reach of your hotel – and we also provide notes for three walking tours, which introduce you to some of the peninsula’s lesser-known but equally captivating corners, such as the small seafront town of Marina del Cantone, and the protected Baia di Jeranto, home to over 100 bird species.
 
 

Itinerary

  • Positano to Sorrento: 11.5km, 4.5hrs; ascent 490m / descent 800m
    Today you are transferred by taxi from Positano to the panoramic village of Colli di Fontanelle, from where you strike out on foot across an open and remote hillside, enjoying spectacular views of the coast as you go. The route leads into Sant’Agata – a bustling village with a good choice of refreshment options – before descending gently sloping hills and crossing olive and citrus groves to enter Sorrento from the west.
  • Explore on foot and by train
    There is much to see in Sorrento itself: from the 14th-century Monastery of San Francesco, with its tranquil cloisters and gardens; to the pretty, pastel-coloured Marina Grande; and the park of Villa Communale, which enjoys a spectacular view of the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.

    An excellent way to explore the area around Sorrento is by rail: the town is served by the modern and comfortable Campania Express train, which calls at Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples – all of which make for fascinating day trips. We also provide notes for three walking tours, including a route on the beautiful island of Capri…

    Walk on Capri: 8km, 3.5hrs; ascent 320m / descent 600m
    This scenic walk starts on the quieter, western side of Capri, in the delightful town of Anacapri. It descends slowly to the rocky coast to follow an informative nature trail (in English) across cliffs and scrub-covered rocks, passing a number of small coastal forts dating from the early 19th century. The route ends close to the Blue Grotto, which can be visited by boat. A public bus service operates from here back to Anacapri.

    Walk via Capo di Sorrento: 4-5km, 2hrs; ascent 245m / descent 215m
    This easy stroll from the hotel door takes you inland and around to the rocky coves of Capo di Sorrento, a captivating headland with a perfectly formed natural pool. The splendid villa of the Roman noble Pollio Felice once stood on the rocks here, and the pool was a favourite of Queen Giovanna D’Angiò, who lived here during the golden years of her reign (1371-1435). Return to Sorrento by bus.

    Walk via Marina del Cantone: 6.5km, 3hrs; ascent 420m /descent 730m
    After a bus ride to Termini, this beautiful route takes you to the Baia di Jeranto, a pristine and protected bay with crystalline waters and over 100 bird species, including numerous falcons and kestrels. Continue south to the small, secluded fishing village of Marina del Cantone, offering a relaxed atmosphere and numerous seafront restaurants; the local speciality here is spaghetti alla Nerano, the recipe for which has been handed down for generations. Return by bus to Sorrento at the end of the day.
