Sorrento

An excellent base for exploring the Amalfi coast and the Bay of Naples, 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.

Overview
