This is how holiday rental owners described Sorrento
show more food to the spiritual and cultural intellectuals from all over Europe.
Sorrento and 'one of the most' affirmed destinations of international tourism. In a unique landscape alternating sea and mountains, deep valleys and plateaus of citrus, everyone will be able to choose the perfect holiday of nature and silence, health and culture, swims, spa treatments, nature walks and hikes in the top resorts neighboring cities: Naples, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Capri, Ischia, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, etc ..
All definitions that have been attributed to Sorrento are real because, actually, Sorrento is a pretty little city where kindness and hospitality are a combination that has been handed down from generation to generation.
Sorrento, not rhetoric, is indeed the land of colors: brilliant or toned down depending on the change of the seasons. Just stop and look because it can be a striking sunset, to be amazed at the variety of colors and beauty of the area. Or look, preferably from the sea, the majestic ridge of tuff that changes color every hour of the day.
The mild climate for most of the year makes Sorrento an ideal destination for every season.
Today, Sorrento and 'a modern town with many comfortable tourist facilities. In a clean and safe atmosphere each can 'spend his holidays with the ability' to choose between quiet and nature, health and culture, swims, spa, boating, nature walks, day trips and visits to museums, walks in old town full of churches, convents and monasteries; but also sport and music and film events of international importance, plays, clubs, restaurants and bars.

show more lies on the volcanic rock terrace, dominated by the mountain peak (500 meters high) that slopes to the sea in the middle of luxuriant plants.
The Sorrentine peninsula is a historical place and has many legends; the most famous is ‘'the myth of the sirens'', whence Sorrento's name- Sirenide.
It is said that the sirens used to live here - legendary creatures, half women half fish, just like in the tradition of Homer. The mermaids used to make the sailors sick with their persuasive songs and make their boats crush on the rocks.
The Greeks, Etruscans, Romans, Normans and Spanish used to come here because of the beauty, location, richness of this place.
Nowadays, the economy of this land is mostly based on tourism, thanks to its nature and location. The agriculture is also important and is based on production of citrus trees, walnuts, olive oil and the transformation of typical products and the creation of some sweeties and liquors like ‘'delizia al limone'' and the famous ‘'limoncello''. Also handicraft has a long story - with characteristic ‘'intarsio art'' and laces. The peninsula offers tours allowing to get familiar with ancient tastes, historical vines, products, manufacturers and characeristics of the land. The place is famous for Limoncello di Sorrento ( liquor made of lemon peels, alcohol, sugar and water), Olio DOP Penisola Sorrentina, Pasta di Gragnano, Dairy di Agerola and various temples of taste and touring around wineries and olive mills. Easter Week processions are also famous. The one of Good Friday, in Sorrento, is among the most beautiful in the world. The processions have their roots in the Middle Ages, they continued during the Spanish rule and are still organized nowadays. One of the them is the procession of the Confraternity of Sorrento which has greatly influenced the history of the city and the peninsula.
show more wild and rugged beauty of Capri, and the orgy of colour and granite of the coast of Amalfi. The town of Sorrento lies on a stratum of rock of volcanic origin about 50 meters above sea level, and has as its background the green hills of Sant'Agata, Tore, S. Angelo and Colli di Fontanelle, which separate the peninsula into the bays of Naples and Salerno.
From Vico Equense to Massalubrense visitor pass behind a curtain of orange trees, with their blossom in May, and silver olive trees.
Among the visitors who came here to enjoy its serenity for their works are: Goethe, Byron, F. Cooper, Walter Scott, Vittorio Alfieri, Giacomo Leopardi, Alexander Dumas, Ernest Renan, Henrik Ibsen, who wrote Ghosts in 1881. Also here were Giuseppe Verdi, and Longfellow in 1862, Samuel Smiles in 1888, Oscar Wilde, Nietzsche wrote Human, too Human in Sorrento in 1876, and it was here that he had his famous dispute with Wagner. Grieg also wrote several of his "poems" here in Sorrento.
The description of this romantic land, with its orange and lemon groves, vineyards, walnut and almond trees, could be attractive, but in real life is definitely better. The song "Come back to Sorrento" is still on for you.
A visitor, who spends his vacation in Sorrento, has the chance to visit also the nearby ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum and the seaside resorts in the Naples area such as Amalfi, Positano, Capri, Naples itself, Salerno and other beautiful places in the region.
Sorrento, native city of the poet Torquato Tasso, who was born here in 1544; kind Sorrento; Sorrento: land of colours; Sorrento: land of the Mermaids; Sorrento, the city of the orange and ...
show more lemon groves, etc.
Each one of these definitions contains the truth because Sorrento is indeed a very pretty little city where kindness and hospitality are a combination that is handed down from one generation to the next. Sorrento, not to be rhetorical, is indeed the land of colours: brilliant or delicate hues depending on the change of the seasons. If you just pause a moment to observe how emotional a sunset can be when you gaze in the direction of Punta del Capo, of Ischia or Procida, the outlines of which can be seen clearly, you will be amazed by the variety of colours and the beauty of the scene. Or look, preferably from the sea, towards the majestic ridge of tuff rock that changes colour at every hour of the day. And then why not leave your mind go back in time so that, with a bit of imagination, you can see the nimble Greek ships ride the waves and Ulysses bound tightly to the main mast to listen safely to the dangerous song of the mermaids .... or follow the wake of the Roman ships laden with merchandise and busy sailors, or look around the wonderful palaces that the Roman emperors built on our coasts, among the most beautiful in the world.
Or again ships black as ink, fully armed, laden with ferocious Turks, liike those that in search of wealth and bounty, sacked Sorrento in 1558.
How many legends are told about these invasions; legends that are almost always linked to the great devotion that the Sorrentines have for their patron Saint Antonino and their well-grounded faith. lf you just go down into the crypt of the Basilica, dedicated of course to St Antonino, you will remain deeply moved by the number of votive offerings offered to the patron saint, and reading from them true stories, both sad and happy, of a people that is simple and industrious, influenced over the centuries by various cultures. Many civilizations have passed through here: the Etruscans, the Greeks (who gave the city its urban layout that is still clearly visible today in the historical centre), the Oscans, the Romans. Later the subjugation to Byzantium, the sack by the Longobards, the conquest by the Normans, the good influence of the Aragonese. After a long period of stagnation, the beginning of the 1700s saw a period of cultural, economic and social rebirth for the whole Sorrentine peninsula, which reached its climax during the 1800s. This was the period when the tourist vocation of this arca was born and was established with its inclusion in the so-called "Grand Tour", a journey through the most important Italian sights that every noble European son of the time had to make to complete his cultural, historical and literary formation. Thus distinguished guests such as Byron, Keats, Scott, Dickens, Goethe, Wagner, lbsen and Nitzsche, to just mention the most famous, came to stay in Sorrento in search of sun and inspiration.
The same period saw an intensification of the more traditional activities such as agriculture, sea trade and finally and progressively that tourist industry that is currently the most important sector of the Sorrentine economy.
Today Sorrento is a modern city with over one hundred comfortable hotels; it is the home of a prestigious and rich Museum (Correale of Terranova), that contains important testimonies of both the history of the city and of the purest craft tradition of inlaid wood. Sorrento hosts important events in the fields of culture (International Prize Award "City of Sorrento" for science), music (Sorrentine Summer Musical Festival), cinema (International Film Festival), as well as the ideal starting point for visiting to all the tourist sights of the area (Capri, Ischia, Naples, Ercolano, Pompei, Positano, Amalfi) and so...
…Welcome and Enjoy your Stay!!!
show more Amalfi. Gods and heroes, imperators and captains, artists and philosophers; whoever has stopped here has been charmed by Sorrento and the pearls of this land which is simply magnetic.
