Sorrento is a city of only 16,000 people, but it has a great deal of charm and history throughout. Several main sites exist that will appeal to a wide swath of people.

The Bagni della Regina Giovanna is a fantastic location of natural bluffs that visitors can tour. The Cattedrale di Sorrento is a timeless cathedral that was built in the 11th century and then rebuilt in a Romanesque style in the 15th century. The baptistery dates from the 16th century and the pulpit, made of marble, dates back to the 15th century. The Corso Italia is Sorrento's main street, and many visitors have found this a fun and interesting place to explore. The street has undergone some maintenance over the years, but the city has managed to keep all of the medieval buildings intact. In the older portion of town the street can lead to some highly narrow passageways, taking the traveler into a time machine back to the 1400s, 1500s, and 1600s.
