Piazza Tasso

The beating heart of downtown Sorrento, Piazza Tasso is a bustling square full of shops, restaurants, and locals going about their day. Named after the Sorrentine poet, Torquato Tasso, you’ll find plenty to capture the eye. In addition to a towering statue dedicated to the famous poet, you’ll also see the baroque Santuario della Madonna del Carmine and the beautiful Palazzo Correale, an 18th-century palace with an intricately tiled Gothic Catalan facade. The breathtaking views from this hilltop Piazza over the sprawling coastline do notdisappoint!

Basilica Sant’Antonino

The humble facade of the Basilica Sant’Antonino makes entering the church all the more intriguing. Dark-toned paintings depict scenes from medieval times, reminding you that below your feet lies a crypt containing the bones of Sorrento’s patron saint and the church's namesake. You’ll admire the gold-wrapped ceiling and hear about the miracles of Sant’Antonino, including how he’s rumored to have saved a child from the belly of a whale.

Please note that when entering sacred places such as churches and cathedrals, local customs must be respected. This means covering knees and shoulders for men and women and being respectful of noise if church services are taking place.

Cloister of Saint Francis

An exterior viewing of this ancient monastery will immediately bring you feelings of tranquility. The 14th-century architectural marvel, built on top of another 7th-century monastery, boasts expertly crafted columns that mix styles, but uniquely share the highest levels of craftsmanship relative to their eras.

Corso Italia

Life and commerce are always going strong along Sorrento’s busiest commercial street. Soak up the energy and the aromas as you pass by busy bars and restaurants, and window shop some of Italy’s finest brands. Parts of the street are pedestrianized, making it more comfortable to lose yourself in the scene.

Marina Grande

Descend the stone staircase toward the bustling cafes that fill the Sorrento coastline. This scenic marina is lined with pastel-colored houses, creating a quintessentially coastal Italian backdrop. Enjoy the rustic fishing village vibe as you sample local seafood and sink your bare feet into the volcanic beach sand.

Il Vallone dei Mulini

This deep valley was formed with the help of a volcanic explosion that occurred over 35,000 years ago. Tucked inside, you’ll find the remains of a 13th-century flour mill, strategically straddling the stream, covered in thick vines and moss. The mill was abandoned in the 1940s and is currently being restored.
