A visit to Sorrento Recapped
Sitting atop the peninsula's rocky cliffs, Sorrento remains Italy's last town of significance on the side of the bay. The next city of importance is Pompeii, long reduced to volcanic ashes. Sorrento is completely a resort, with its desolate location and mild climate drawing tourists looking for an exclusive getaway for more than two hundred years. The Southern Italian city enjoys resort year-round prices, so it's generally better to keep a few extra to enjoy the rest of the package-tour territory. The small town in Campania is reachable by the Circumvesuviana rail line, which offers guests with scenic spectacles of the Isle of Capri, the Vesuvius, and the Bay of Naples. Guests can also choose to enter the city through the high cliffs of Amalfi Drive. Numerous ferry boats can take you in the town, which have once carried the likes of Luciano Pavarotti and Enrico Caruso. Never leave the resort town without sampling its limoncello, and other offerings of olives, nuts, fruits, and wines.
