The off-season is especially beautiful in this little town, because the originality and tranquility of this town isn't disturbed by hordes of tourists, which can be the case in the very busy summer season. Built upon impressive white cliffs this little town has a fantastic view of the Gulf of Naples.
In the charming fisher port of the town, Marina Grande, you will find delicious meals in the "Trattorie". We especially recommend trying "Spaghetti alle Vongole".
One of the main reasons that Sorrent and the coast of Amalfi became famous are the thriving lemon plantations. Most of the lemons are used for Limoncello, a lemon liqeur, that the Italian traditionally drink ice-cold after a meal.
In the heart of Sorrent lies the Piazza Tasso, which is named after the poet Torquato Tasso (1544-1594). As not to forget this man, a statue of him was built in the center of this square.
The SS. Filippo e Giacomo dome was built in the 15th century. When constructing the belfry they built four already existing ancient columns into the tower.
