A little town near Naples, overlooking the sea. Its historical
centre, surrounded by the ancient town walls, is typical of a Roman
city with streets that intersecting themselves formed a net-shape.
The historic streets, filled today with vibrant shops selling
various goods, form interesting artistic routes winding along
churches and ancient buildings.
Here it’s possible see the Dome, the Church of Saint Francesco from
Assisi with its fourteenth-century monastery and the Correale of
Terranova Museum where Greek and Roman finds, collection of inlaid
wood works, porcelains’ Capodimonte and paintings from the 17th and
19th centuries are to be found. Along the coast, the Roman ruins of
the Pollio Felice’s Villa are the destination of many tourists who
love swimming in the baths of the Queen Giovanna.
A traditional holiday place, with many hotels dipped in the silence
and surrounded by the greenery of lemons and orange groves, small
parks, gardens and limpid sea… the sea where mythological mermaids
tempted Ulysses with melodious songs.
It’s possible taste home-made cakes, buns, ice-creams in every bar.
Restaurants like “Don Alfonso 1890” in Sant’Agata sui due Golfi,
awarded three stars in the Michelin guide, offer a very high quality
of gastronomy and then… it’s also possible taste the world
neapolitan “pizza” and the famous “limoncello”.
Sorrento and the Sorrentine Peninsula
Sorrento offers to its visitors a wonderful view over the gulf of
Naples and the isles of Capri, Ischia, and Procida. The coasts are
very irregular, with small hidden creeks and beaches created because
of the erosion by the sea.
