SORRENTO

Celebrated throughout the World, The Sorrentine Peninsula, with its views and scents, has made its mark on illustrious visitors ever since the 17century. Then it was the Grand Tour which brought young noblemen, intellectuals and artists from Northern Europe to Italy. Previously the enchanting landscape had conquered the Romans and today, as Lucio Dalla recalls in Caruso (the song he composed in Sorrento to commemorate the town’s world famous tenor), this is still the place where the sea glistens and the wind blows fiercely. Beaches, Coves, breathtaking views and much more!
The small town of Sorrento is wonderfully located over white steep cliffs and offers a fantastic view over the Bay of Naples. Sorrento lies on a Tufa terrace and is enclosed by impressive rocks of the limestone mountains. For 2000 years already visitors from all over the world have been attracted to Sorrento for its breathtaking sunsets and fragrances of orange and lemon gardens. Sorrento is truly spectacular, especially if you come by boat. From the sea you can appreciate the rugged beauty of the coast line with its towering cliffs in volcanic tuff. Whoever chooses to make Sorrento their base for a seaside holiday (and you can do so for most of the year thanks to the mild climate) can be sure of beautiful landscapes and first-rate artistic and gastronomic attractions, as well as fine hotels, charming guest houses and fully equipped camp sites. If you are keen on immersing yourself in nature, archeology and legend, the Baths of Queen Joan are the place for you, with a natural rock arch enclosing a pool of seawater. The waterside ruins are thought to be those of the villa of Vedius Pollio, a rich Roman Aristocrat, but legend has it that it was here that Joan, queen of Anjou kept trysts with her lovers. The coast roas beyond Sorrento winds through citrus and olive groves, with scintillating views.
Small but delightful, the Correale di Terranova Museum occupies an 18th century villa, set in a citrus grove, overlooking the sea. Inside you can find a variety art of objects, masterpieces of inlaid wood,  the local specialty paintings, old clocks, oriental porcelain, and both Italian and foreign majolica ware.
The Sorrento Dome hosts many celebrities’ remains and also it is famous for two religious events: the  procession of the Good Friday called the White procession, because all the people wear white clothes following the Statue of Virgin Mary who is looking for Jesus; after the white cult there is the Black procession with all the people black dressed who follow the Statue of the Virgin Mary that find Jesus dead.
The gastronomic tradition is also very important. Everybody knows the big and tasty lemon of Sorrento, essential to make typical drink like the limoncello and cakes such as delizia al limone. The pasta of Gragnano, few km away from Sorrento, the parapandalo, a pink prawn that can be caught at the entrance of the grottoes, the pizza al metro of Vico Equense, which really is a meter of pizza, with rectangular shape.
Sorrento is the perfect location if you are planning to visit different location on the Coast. Wery well connected to Naples, Pompeii, very close to the Amalfi coast and all the islands!
