Sorrento is the practical traveler’s paradise. Located on a train, bus, and ferry route that connects it with the Amalfi Coast ’s other cities, Sorrento makes dazzling, high-cliffed Bay of Naples beauty easily accessible. While many travelers use Sorrento as a springboard for day trips, its mix of paved streets and urban grit with shopping and beach bumming—the epitome of leisure—make it worth exploring in its own right.
Before hopping on that train to more serene destinations, kick back with a glass of limoncello (as common as water here) and a cono of mint gelato for some daytime relaxation. Don’t forget your heels, though—staying out into the wee hours of the morning is as popular with Sorrento’s crowds.
