One of the reasons I suggest to travelers to go to Naples, Italy is because my ‘home’ city is surrounded by day trip gems. One such place is Sorrento, which is easily accessible by train from both Naples and Pompeii. If it is a clear day you can overlook the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius, and the Isle of Capri. You can also reach Sorrento by car if you take the Amalfi Drive that connects Sorrento and the Amalfi coast. If you are daring enough you can come by moped since the road is narrow and threads along the cliffs high above the Tyrrhenian Sea. Which ever way gets you to this coastal destination will make it worth your while. I recommend making sure to wear shoes that can support a lot of walking and uneven surfaces. Start your day out with refreshing drinks and food from one of the cafes that overlooks the view of the Isle of Capri. Do some shopping as you walk through the winding streets of Sorrento. I recommend checking out anything that is made with the regional lemons such as the limoncello, candies, and fresh smelling soaps. As it approaches dinner time make your way down to the marina and eat at the outdoor restaurant overlooking the ocean and the boats. Choose the local house wine and you will not be disappointed. As night prepares to fall make your way back into heart of town and you will be welcomed by the romantic nightlife. Whether you choose to sample every flavour of gelato, drink limoncello, or dance under the stars it will be a night you’ll always remember. If you are planning to get married in Italy for a destination wedding you might want to look at Sorrento for your backdrop. We saw at least four different weddings on our past trip and nothing makes a town come alive than a celebration.
