About Sorrento

Cliffside Sorrento is often called “The Gateway to the Amalfi Coast”, but the town itself has enough charm and history to warrant its own visit before heading to the UNESCO World Heritage Site next door. Nestled amongst the rugged cliffs, classic white buildings are complemented by pastel houses in shades of orange, yellow, and pink, leading down to sapphire waves that lap against tan sands.

Sorrento’s sparkle has enchanted visitors for thousands of years, having been a popular tourist destination since the Roman Empire. Today, tourists and locals alike still take in the dreamy sea views. Strolling along the Marina Grande, the scents of Italian cuisine entice you to stop at one of the traditional trattorias for drinks and dishes flavored with fragrant Sorrento lemons, such as limoncello spritz or seafood spaghetti drizzled with lemon-infused olive oil.

Above the cliffs, Sorrento’s heart beats in its vibrant center where winding cobblestone streets are lined with small shops, restaurants, and historical buildings that radiate Italian charm.

As day turns to night, the town illuminates with twinkling lights. Now is the perfect time to take a seat at a bustling restaurant to dine al fresco with stunning sunset views.

Daytrip offers possibilities for customization, allowing you to tailor your trip to suit your needs. You can select your vehicle type ensuring you travel in comfort, from sedan, MPV, van, and luxury sedan.
