Additional Location Information
Location & Area
Sorrento is one of Italy´s most famous resort towns. Placed on a perch high above the Mediterranean, it is like a balcony over the sea with views that extend from the island of Procida across the Gulf to Naples and Mt. Vesuvius. The city sits on the bluff that ends abruptly at a sheer cliff that plummets straight down to the sea. It has, for more than two millennia, enjoyed the status of seaside destination, starting with the Greeks. It came into its own as a summer destination during the Roman era, when emperors Agrippa, Tiberius and Augustus had their splendid villas here. Sorrento sits in a sheltered spot on the promontory, protected by the surrounding hills. It has been an important port for centuries of seafarers. It has been called "La Gentile" ("the nice one") for its mild climate, elegant streets and gardens, and friendly residents. It has many millennia of welcoming travellers, and the tradition of hospitality is carried on proudly.
The centre of the city´s life is Piazza Tasso, which is full of energy and people at all hours. Corso Italia is lined with cafes, restaurants and shops but the entire historic centre has life, sights and eateries tucked away in the side streets. There are loads of pretty palaces fronting the streets, attesting to the town´s prosperity. The Villa Comunale is a civic park bursting with blooms and trees, a popular gathering spot for the citizens. Piazza Vittoria contains the Temple of Venus, or what remains of the ancient structure. The church of San Francesco has a cross-vaulted cloister that hosts concerts and art exhibitions. And don´t miss the Romanesque Duomo, the city´s cathedral that dates back to the 1400s. It has gorgeous doors with a fresco over the portal. It´s accompanying bell tower has a clock faced with maiolica tiles and there are ancient columns shoring up its base
Il Centrale apartment is located in the heart of Sorrento, the main square is only a few metres away as well as shops, restaurants, bar, etc...
The tourist port of Sorrento is Km 2 away, where it´s possible to take day trips with fast, comfortable and inexpensive ferries to Capri and the other islands of the Gulf, to Amalfi and Positano.
It is a convenient base for visiting the Neapolitan Riviera and other famous attractions: Pompei, Capri, Napoli, Paestum, and Amalfi Coast.
