Beautiful Sorrento

Sorrento is a beautiful small Italian town sitting atop high cliffs overlooking the Bay of Naples.
It is clean, safe, friendly, and a great jumping off point for day trips to surrounding locations in the Italian state of Campania.
We were pleasantly surprised with Sorrento.
Reports that Sorrento would be overcrowded and overpriced seemed to be exaggerated.
Perhaps our visit in late May helped us enjoy great weather, while still avoiding the summer crowds. Sorrento is a very tidy, beautiful, and friendly place.
They have been welcoming European tourists for over 200 years, and are very good at it.
Sorrento can visited on a budget staying in an Apartment and eat at moderately priced restaurants, or you can stay and eat very expensively.... but the views and memories are the same no matter what.
We rented a three bedroom house located 900 meters from the train station and a 5 minute walk to Piazza S.Agnello: Sorrento Holidays House La Terrazza (
It was clean and convenient and very roomy. There we several grocery stores and restaurants close by.
I highly recommend this apartment - 100% residential and surrounded by lemon groves!

I agree 100% with your thoughts about Sorrento. I had thought we wouldn't enjoy because I had heard it was really geared to tourists. After going there and absolutely loving it I had a realization - we ARE tourists! It was such a contrast with Naples which, to put it kindly, is not geared to tourists.
