Sorrento was my favourite city in Italy. It’s the kind of place you dream about moving to after retiring. It’s beautiful, there’s a ton of history and excellent shopping. This quick guide to Sorrento has everything you need to know about this sea-side Italian town.

  • Il Nido is a reasonably priced hotel with incredible views of the Bay of Naples and a killer restaurant. This place is a hidden gem!
  • Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is an iconic property centrally located with great views and impeccable service.

  • There’s no sandy beaches to speak of in Sorrento, but Marameo Beach is a “bathing institute” with a pier lined with sun loungers and stairs down into the water. Marameo has great cocktails and a trendy crowd – making it the perfect place to spend the day.
  • I loved shopping in Sorrento and really regretted not buying more here. The prices for leather sandals and belts were some of the cheapest in Italy! 
  • You’ll also see a ton of food shops in Sorrento selling anything to do with lemons. I bought lemon infused pasta and chocolate that were divine.
  • Marina Grande is an old fishing village with great restaurants and a tiny beach – make sure you visit this area!

  • The calamari and seafood risotto at Bagni Delfino is to die for! Add in the beautiful views and this is easily my favourite restaurant in Sorrento.
  • The restaurant at Il Nido Hotel has some of the best views in all of Sorrento and their food is delicious. Everything we ate here was spectacular, especially the pasta.
  • Visit Davide Gelato for some traditional Italian gelato in a wide range of flavours. Try the ricotta pear!
