SORRENTO

Land of Syrens, colors and lemons.
There are many definitions of this enchanting town overlooking the sea.
A famous tourist destination but also an inspiration for many artists and also a stage for many famous films.

Here's what you absolutely must see in Sorrento!

Tasso Square and Corso Italia

Piazza Tasso Sorrento
The beating heart of the city. Full of bars, restaurants and many shops. Ideal for enjoying an aperitif with friends and a meeting point. One part is intended for the pedestrian area for a relaxing walk.

Villa Comunale

sorrento villa comunale
Considered the most panoramic point, with a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Naples. It is a small area equipped with benches, where you can take a walk or simply enjoy the view! From here there is the exclusive possibility of reaching the port of Marina Piccola and its beaches by a comfortable lift.

Cloister of San Francesco

It is located right next to the Villa Comunale and is a must for anyone visiting Sorrento. It is part of the church of the same name and retains traces of its original architecture. With a romantic and welcoming atmosphere, it is in great demand as a location for weddings.

The Valley of the Mills

It is an abandoned natural locus, which once reached the sea, where the Correale family had a mill built for grinding wheat. Since the activity ceased in the 1900s, dense vegetation has taken over the area almost covering it. You can find it walking in the heart of Sorrento, but unfortunately the valley is inaccessible so you have to be content with photographing it from above.

The Churches

duomo sorrento
The Cathedral is located in Corso Italia, along the pedestrian area. But in addition to the main church there are also many other sacred places that deserve to be visited for their history, but also for their artistic and architectural beauty. There are many events, rites and processions organized to keep the religious tradition alive.

Museum Correale di Terranova

Museum-Correale-di-Terranova​
Located in a beautiful garden, the museum was born from a private commission of the counts of Terranova who organized their art collection there and from which it took its name. The gardens of the villa are very beautiful and also accessible to the public. Highly recommended especially for those who love ancient art and crafts.

Baths of Queen Giovanna

Bagni Regina Giovanna Sorrento
Enchanting cove located along the Sorrento coast. A real corner of paradise, reachable by a path, ideal for those who want to get away from the crowded beaches. It is one of the archaeological sites of the peninsula and houses the remains of an ancient Roman villa and an exclusive natural swimming pool where, it is said, that Queen Giovanna II of Durazzo loved to spend time with her lovers.

Marina Grande

sorrento marina grande
The suggestive seaside village of Sorrento. Much loved by visitors, it is a place of rare beauty, colorful and picturesque from which to admire the Sorrento peninsula, the Gulf of Naples and Vesuvius, and for no other reason has it been the setting for the most famous films. It is one of the most precious corners of Sorrento linked to ancient traditions, but above all to the sea. In the past it was the shipyard where the seafaring art of building the Gozzo Sorrentino was practiced, a typical boat, still used today. In short, ideal for an evening by the sea accompanied by the sound of the sea waves and enjoying a romantic and relaxing atmosphere.

ART AND CULTURE

Sorrento Inlaid wood

Sorrento-Inlaid-woodTalking about Intarsio Sorrentino means talking about the history of the city and the peninsula.
It represents one of the pillars of the Sorrento economy.

Wood inlay is a craftsman like expression which, thanks to a refined mould and to the complexity of the objects made is a sublime art expression.
It consists of making images (landscapes, portraits, decorations, still lives, etc.) by recurring to the use of very thin sheets of kinds of wood of different colours or shades, alternated to leaves of other materials as thin as them (such as ivory and mother-of-pearl) or upon which, especially in the Baroque time, metals and hard stones were inserted. Sorrento wood tarsiahas been able to distinguish itself and be appreciated for the choice of techniques (in particular that of mosaic) and of absolutely original materials (wood often got by the typical local vegetation).

Known and appreciated all over the world, this technique of working has been increasingly reason of interest.
