    Many bars and eating places. We boarded our tour bus to Amalfi a short walk from her. Lovely for taking pictures. Shops and small narrow streets are here. Good to see at night

    I have to admit that we didnt like Sorrento very much - for such a small town, it has so much traffic and is so loud and noisy. A really pleasant suprise therefore was for us the Marina Grande. A haven of peace in this otherwise so noisy city. A fishing port, a small beach, almost no traffic, local restaurants. Steps and narrow streets leading down to it, and there, several nice little restaurants serving fish and seafood.

    San Francesco cloister is definitely worth the visit. It is positioned steps away from the main street and its architecture incredibly beautiful, providing an abundance of photo opportunities.
    It is positioned next to the church and well signed. The cloister is free to enter and we were very fortunate that on the day of our visit we had it to ourselves.
    As you walk around the cloister there is a real sense of peace and tranquillity. There is then a door indicating access up to an art gallery. The art gallery is positioned on the second floor and is a must for any visitor.
    There were two exhibitions on for our visit - Italian life over the last 30 years depicted in black and white photographs and an exhibition of photographs of Sophia Loren. We actually didn’t pay to look at the art work. The gallery looked fabulous and you can still see some of the photographs on the approach to its entrance.
    There is also an opportunity just to pay a nominal fee (around €2) to access the outside terrace and a big swing and other props. The terrace provides the most wonderful view and photo opportunities. It was such a great find
    A visit here is highly recommended.

    Pedestrian street with some of the most remarkable buildings in Sorrento. Also, a great area for shopping and for food.

    We had the luck to be allowed in while decorating for an upcoming wedding with more flowers than we have ever seen. We were asked not to take pictures. This is well worth to visit while on the way to the best lookout in Sorrento.

    Was closed so could only view from the bridge but worth going to as it’s right in the city centre and is quite unique sitting between the cliffs. Viewing at night can give an eerie feel.

    Pretty typical cathedral. Don’t be surprised that the outside is fairly plain but pretty neat inside. It s free to visit so pop in for a quick look

    Excellent experience. Love the pizza making lesson. Outcome from our own creation tasted excellent .. due to the fresh ingredients? The sauce or the home made cheese? :) a true authentic experience. Too bad we did not stay over but the views from their rooms is super!

    We walked to the beach from Sorrento using a route in the Sunflower book. The walk took about an hour each way.
    Access to the beach is down a steep slope (which you will also need to climb back up again when you leave).

    The beach is very busy, so you will need to turn up early to claim your spot. On the sandy part of the beach there are sun loungers and umbrellas which can be hired out. On the rocky part of the beach, no payment is required and there is still easy access to the sea.

    When the tide is going out, the beach is very clean. We even had a quick chat to a local who was picking up litter. They really seem to have respect for the area. However, incoming tide also brings in litter from the sea.

    There are also plenty of restaurants and hotels on the beach, although we didn't get around to trying any of them.

    Amazing service and hospitality.
    Too bad some of our wedding jewelery was stolen/lost however I wouldn't want to point fingers without evidence.
    I truly hope that the owner/operators who were simply awesome, trust each of their onsite staff who have access to all rooms at any given time. We had booked-out almost 90% of the rooms for us & our overseas wedding guests.

    Located on the corner of a busy alley near the clock tower and Piazzo Tasso sits this gorgeous building with it breath-taking colorful frescoes. On certain days you will find some elderly gentlemen sitting at the various tables playing cards.
    A MUST SEE!

    Visit this lovely house and go down to the basement where you will meet the charming Mario. He will amaze and entertain you with his marvellous collection of antique musical boxes. He made the cabinets of many of them himself! Simply the most memorable experience you will have in Sorrento.

    Bust square a short walk from Villa Communiale and just up from Marina Piccolo. There is a lovely statue of St Antonino Abbate on the square and the Basilica is worth a visit.

    I visited the Marina Grande "on spec", after a busy Saturday morning visiting Pompei.

    I'm glad that I did, because I had the opportunity to see a "touching" Italian Wedding and the beautiful, small church that it was being held in.

    I visited it another day also - as I didn't want to intrude on the privacy of a wedding.

    The church is definitely worth a visit when in Marina Grande. The ceiling paintings and the inside architecture are wonderful.

    A quiet spot - for contemplation - amongst the business and commercialism of the Marina.

    Recommended.
