Sorrento Coast (area) Hotels
Nestled between the mountains and the glittering blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea some 500 feet below, Sorrento Coast is picturesque to the extreme. Home to a select few (only 20,000 year-round residents), its population swells quite considerably during peak summer months. Often regarded as the gateway to the world-renowned destination of Amalfi Coast, this mountainside town has retained many of its old-world charm. Venere has a number of Sorrento Coast hotels you can explore online, each one offering a unique location. You can book your travel accommodations before you head out to the airport and arrive in Sorrento Coast ready to have a great time.
What's Sorrento Coast Like?
One of the first things you will notice about Sorrento Coast (aside from the unobstructed view of the sea) is the scent of lemons. Sorrento lemons are a distinct variety and they grow abundantly all along this coastal town in numerous local orchards. They are known throughout Italy and are the preferred lemons when making ice-cold limoncello, a popular Italian liqueur. From your Sorrento Coast hotel, start your tour of the town on Tasso Square. Named after Torquato Tasso, one of Italy's most famous Renaissance poets and a native son of Sorrento, Tasso Square lies at the heart of town where several roads meet. From here, most of the main attractions in Sorrento are within an easy walking distance. Meander along the streets and alleyways and you will find a wealth of architectural treasures. You can see the Correale House as well as the Correale Palace, the Fifteenth Century House, the Bishops's Palace and the Cathedral all in an day's leisurely walk. There are many more centuries-old churches, monasteries and convents in this historic town, each one revealing an aspect of life and faith in Sorrento. After your stroll through town, head out to Villa Comunale, Sorrento's largest public park. It sits like a queen on the top of a cliff giving visitors an unparalleled view of the bay of Naples, including Vesuvius and Capri further out. You can sit under the shade of the trees that abound in the park and simply enjoy the sea breeze, or you can make your way down to the main harbor, the Marina Piccola. There you will find bathing platforms for your private enjoyment. Because of its strategic location, you can easily explore other well-known Italian destinations from Sorrento. Historic Pompeii, exciting Capri and the beach town of Positano are all an easy driving distance away. In addition to surf and sand, Positano offers world-class shopping as well, where famous name brands and small boutique shops can be found right next to each other.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Sorrento Coast
As the sun sets in this idyllic Italian mountainside, engage in a favorite Sorrento pastime - the passeggiata. It is a languid evening stroll taken with no real purpose or destination, except perhaps to meet others along the way who are similarly engaged. The Sorrento Coast, with its old-world charm, picture-perfect setting, friendly residents and streets made for walking, offer the ideal location for such a laid-back activity. As an alternative, you can claim a sidewalk table and chair right in front of your hotel and indulge in the age-old ritual of people watching as you sip a tall cold glass of limoncello. Venere has an excellent selection of Sorrento Coast hotels for you to choose from, all within steps of the town's many attractions. Discover everything this Mediterranean jewel has to offer.
