Escorted Rail Tours to Sorrento

Enjoy Limoncello in this colourful harbour town

The incredibly picturesque coastal town of Sorrento sits in its own 'mini bay' within the vast Bay of Naples. The main town is perched on a natural terrace that stretches along the top of dramatic cliffs overlooking the water. The narrow, cobbled streets feature a charming combination of Renaissance palace buildings and Romanesque churches. Lemon orchards cover the hillsides and farmland around Sorrento - the town is famous for its citrus products, such as Limoncello - a digestive made with lemon rind.

The sights of Sorrento
Sorrento itself is a charming relaxed town with a colourful harbour, usually filled with fishing boats bobbing in the breeze. The town's central square is an ideal spot to relax with a drink and indulge in a favourite Italian pastime - people-watching. On a clear day, the views from Sorrento include the city of Naples, renowned Mount Vesuvius and the charming island of Ischia.
