Italy, Sorrento Area
Southern Italy’s Sorrento is a beautiful city with a view of the Bay of Naples. At the southern end of the Circumvesuviana rail line, Sorrento is a well-known tourist destination on the Sorrentine Peninsula, close to Naples and Pompeii. This town is known for its small ceramics, lace, and marquetry woodwork shops. Naples, Mount Vesuvius, and the Isle of Capri are all visible from the Sorrentino Peninsula. Ferries and hydrofoils connect the town to Ischia, Capri, Amalfi, Positano, Naples, and the Amalfi Coast. Citrus fruits, wine, almonds, olives, and limoncello, a digestif made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water, and sugar, are all produced in Sorrento. Due to its bustling piazzas and iconic bathing platforms, timeless Sorrento takes centre stage, but nearby towns like Massa Lubrense provide rural beauty and leisurely sunny days. Two pastel-coloured lookers further south, Positano and Ravello, draw A-list tourists with their chic shopping and soaring gardens. Vineyard visits, jet-setter islands, and the archaeological wonder of Pompeii are all on the menu if you can drag yourself away from village hopping. The Holiday Butler offers all types of holidays, so let us serve up that dream holiday in Sorrento.
