Sorrento neighborhoods

Historical Center

Sorrento's city center is a 200-step uphill hike from the shore. The cathedral, an iconic white structure, is on the pedestrian Corso Italia, less than a 10-minute walk west of the central Piazza Tasso. More stunning views can be seen from Villa Commune at San Francesco Marina and at the cloisters at San Francesco Church, near the park entrance.

Marina Grande

Via Marina Grande runs along the water from Marina San Francesco to Marina Grande, northwest, and goes downhill from Piazza Tasso. Bars and restaurants line the cobbled streets between longstanding medieval stone structures.

Marina Piccola

Marina Piccola is east of Marina San Francesco and serves as a launching pad for ferries and hydrofoils traveling to and from Naples and Capri. The main Sic office is on the water and offers boat cruises by the hour. The gardens at Palazzo Correale, on the town's east side, feature spendid views of the bay and from here, it's mere steps to the shore.

The local Circumvesuviana train station is at the intersection of Via Flavio Gioia and Via Cassari and is just one stop away from Sorrento's downtown.

Piano Di Sorrento

Piano Di Sorrento is a seaside town a mile and a half northeast of Sorrento. Located just north of highway SS145, the town is accessible to Sorrento by either private car or taxi. The town's building and streets offer glimpses into medieval times and from here the cliffs provide access to spectacular views of apparently endless blue water.

Sant'Agnello

A mile northeast of Sorrento sits the seaside town of Sant'Agnello. The Corso Italia, SS145, runs through the town. Narrow, cobblestone streets and centuries-old stucco buildings sit on cliffs allowing for stunning views and sea breezes. Restaurants, bars and shops line the steep streets here.
