Nice to see the Main Street from piazza Tasso down to the hospital pedestrianised. Be aware that there are many more shops running parallel with this street in what is called the drains. Shops on the high street tend to be more designer, and pricey....More

It was an absolute pleasure to walk along the newly pedestrianised part of the Corso Italia. I suspect the hotel and outdoor café owners are delighted because the terrible scream of motor scooters has vanished along with the dreadful exhaust fumes. Unfortunately, bicycles are now...More

We had not been back to Sorrento for a couple of years so it was a nice surprise to find the main road had been closed to traffic and was now just for walking and window shopping. In saying closed to traffic you still have...More

Very much the Main Street and split in two with a pedestrianised area on one half and busy street on the other half. Full of shops, cafes, restaurants and always busy. Easy walk through town and always something different to see.

Lovely street which has recently been pedestrianised, making it much safer, running through the centre of Sorrento. Lovely, diverse shopping area with a few chip shops (yes this has bee allowed), a cathedral and some great restaurants. Worth a walk through is easy and worth...More

This is the central shopping and eating area but it’s average compared to other towns in the Amalfi coast. Try not to pick a city center hotel because the websites will direct you to hotels around this street. Sorrento has so many hotels with views...More

Stopped at port of Naples during our recent cruise. It is true. Naples is busy, industrial looking, and very crowed downtown. Took the ferry to Sorrento. 35 minute ride. Great choice. Very interesting down town plaza. Great place to have a coffee, meal or a...More

This is a nice shopping street down the center of Sorrento. It's lined with shops, restaurants, souvenir vendors, etc. At the end is a nice square and some pretty side streets.
