There's lots to see and do on the Corso Italia, but my suggestion would be to get off the beaten path and see some of the other areas around it, like the Centro Storico.

This is the main street through Sorrento, it has traffic through the day but is closed to vehicles and pedestrianised by night. It is a thriving street with lots of shops bars and boutiques. On a Sunday evening the Italians dress up in their best Bib and Tucker and promenade themselves up and down the street greeting each other and... More

So many shops, restaurants and Gelaterias. Enjoyable to dine, walk and people watch. The shops are varied, as are the restaurants, just depends on what you are looking for. Great street with all the outside cafes to people watch. Definitely make it part of your trip to Sorrento.

This is a long and busy part of Sorrento, forming the main thoroughfare. There are many shops and bar cafes both here and nearby. Also adjacent is the wondrous furniture and soft furnishing store, Gargiulo and Jannuzzi, which is well worth visiting.

We stayed at an apartment right on Corso Italia. That made the apartment a bit noisy with the windows open, but ideally located for everything. Corso Italia is the main drag in Sorrento. You can pick up a tour bus, find many restaurants, bars, and gelateria's, pop into a historic church or two, whatever you like. They close the street... More

Very much the centre of Sorrento. Lots of shops, cafes, churches, other historical buildings etc. A mix of facilities for tourists and everyday Italian life.

In the centre of Sorrento the Corso Italia is a busy crowded street. Full of atmosphere with places of interest. It leads on to old narrow streets with plenty of character.

We visited Sorrento in mid-October and this boulevard was teeming with activity. I wouldn't want to be here in the summer! It is jam-packed and often hard to traverse. On the other hand, everything you could wanr to eat drink or buy is located on this artery which defines life in Sorrento. So, it is impossible to avoid even if... More
