An excellent base for exploring the Amalfi coast, Sorrento is a classic seaside resort. Travel connections to Pompeii and Herculaneum are excellent on the super-speedy and efficient Campania Express or you can hop across on a ferry to the island of Capri.
The villages and towns along the Amalfi Coast are easily accessed by road or water, by bus or in inimitable style in your own rented convertible! If you prefer to experience the coast from the water, chartering a speed boat is the perfect answer.
Sorrento is also a good base for exploring the peninsula’s countryside, most notably the fabled Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods).
