Sorrento’s relaxed feel makes wandering the city a tranquil and breath-taking venture and with most attractions within walking distance there’s so much on offer. The Cloister of San Francesco is an early eighth century monastery, in the summer art exhibitions and concerts are held at the vine draped monastery, a unique way of indulging in the city’s rich history.
While in Sorrento, trying limoncello (a lemon vodka) is an absolute must! Made using the country’s finest lemons, the Sorrento peninsular are the torchbearers for making the perfect limoncello. Served chilled usually before or after a meal it’s the idea drink for any occasion when in Italy.
The Sorrento Marina has a beautiful waterfront lined with bars, seafood restaurants and swimming piers with beaches and fishing villages close by. From the marina you can catch many boat trips to Naples, Capri, and the Amalfi Coast. I recommend a boat trip from Sorrento to Capri, then finally stopping at Positano as the best way to spend a day in Italy.
Capri is one of the chicest and most popular charter destinations in the world, situated south of the gulf of Naples, the island has a Hollywood allure about it attracting many every year. I suggest going on a boat trip around the island, discovering the unique blue grotto’s, the Faraglioni rocks, and stunning coastline.
For the best views in Capri, head to the island's highest point, Monte Solaro. To get to the viewpoint, there is a hiking trail or a gentle single-seat chairlift taking you to the top of the island. Once at the top you will enjoy the best views of the region including Naples Bay Faraglioni, and Sorrento’s mainland.
Positano, the colourful, iconic village on the infamous Amalfi Coast overlooking the turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, is a destination like no other. Known for its cliff side, pink and terracotta terraced houses it’s worth the steep walk for the photo of a lifetime. The best way to spend a short afternoon in Positano is wandering the winding streets, exploring local business and restaurants before retiring to the pebble beaches below for amazing panoramic views while basking in the Italian sun.
