Let City Sightseeing highlight all the things to do and see during your stay
Sorrento is known as a desirable destination for the perfect beach holiday. But is also a town rich in history and there is plenty to discover. The Duomo, or Sorrento Cathedral, is one of the city's most important and remarkable landmarks. Take the opportunity to go inside the building and discover the wonderful frescoes created by local Neapolitan artists. The meandering lanes around the old historical city centre remain relatively untouched and feature a number of beautiful monasteries and churches. Significant churches in the city include both the striking Basilica di San Antonino and the Chiesa di San Francesco which is renowned for its magnificent cloisters. Enjoy breathtaking views across Sorrento’s bay and coastline from the Piazza della Vittoria. The area is famous for its links with the legend of the Roman goddess Venus.

Discover a range of souvenirs and gifts at Via San Cesareo, the main shopping street. Here you can find handicrafts such as ceramics and scented wax, or delicacies like "limoncello" sweets, "rosolio" liqueur, jams and preserved vegetables. Hop off at vibrant Piazza Tasso for a wide range of bars, cafes, pizzerias and restaurants. Parades and festivities often take place here, particularly during Easter celebrations. Some of the bars have late licenses and are open into the early hours and are great places to people watch and admire the high fashion donned by Sorrento’s glamorous residents. Shops and gelateries are also open late.
