Take a trip down to the south west of Italy, where you’ll find the glorious town of Sorrento. This place is a real hot spot for tourists and travelers alike and it’s plain to see why. The cobbled streets offer just so much by way of entertainment, sights, and food, that there’s a whole load to love. Jody & I recently visited Pompeii & Sorrento with The Roman Guy and we loved it.
Here’s why you need to visit Sorrento ASAP.
- The Isle of Capri is just gorgeous
Just a mere ferry ride away, the Isle of Capri is one of the prettiest places that you will ever have the pleasure of seeing for yourself. This area just looks like something out of a movie; it’s more perfect than perhaps you can ever imagine. While you’re there, be sure to check out the Blue Grotto, which is one of the best spots. You will want to spend an entire day here, browsing the area and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
- It’s extremely romantic
If you’re looking for a place to spend the weekend with your loved one, you may just have found it. Though it may not be the best-known area, Sorrento is one of the most romantic in a lot of ways. Here, you can take in the views from the top of an impressive mount or merely spend some time walking along the shores. There are plenty of lovely little restaurants, cafes, and bars here too where you will be able to pass the evening hours. Take a look online ahead of your trip and you won’t be disappointed.
- You get Limoncello at the end of meals
Okay, this may be quite a bizarre reason to visit a place, but stay with me here. One of the best things about eating out in this fair place is the fact that you always get a post-meal shot. The tasty, citrusy liquor is seriously underrated. Once you try it for yourself, you will fall in love with the stuff. Perhaps you’ll even wonder why we don’t have the same custom here.
- There’s plenty of shopping too!
Without a doubt, one of the main reasons that people head to Italy is for the shopping. If this appeals to you, you will want to head to the Corso Italia. On this strip, you will find the majority of the clothes stores. You can spend a whole afternoon flitting from place to place here. What’s more, if you know what you’re looking for, you’re certain to grab a bargain along the way.
- Getting around is super easy
The hop-on, hop-off bus system is perfect for tourists. If you want to see as much of the town as you can in one day, this is the perfect way to get around. Once you’re all aboard, a guide will show you the greatest sights. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
