The beautiful town of Sorrento draws visitors year after year who come to soak up the beautiful scenery, indulge in gastronomical delights and delve into the area's fascinating history.
Built into the side of a cliff, the town has plenty to explore, with 'the drains' in particular being a highlight. Here, narrow winding streets packed full of traditional wares and souvenirs will draw you in, and there will be many opportunities to sample the area's speciality tipple, limoncello.
Take a stroll to the harbour where you will be able to take a boat trip to glamorous Capri and mingle with the glitterati. Once there, you can enjoy looking around the designer stores of Capri town or heading uphill to Anacapri, where you will get some great views of the bustling island below.
However, one of the best things to do is just to sit in one of the chic cafes with an afternoon aperitif, watching the world go by and soaking up the atmosphere.
Sorrento's location makes it an ideal base for using your hire car to explore surrounding areas and attractions such as Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius and the Amalfi Coast.
From an ancient town frozen in time, to a hair-raising drive along the stunning Amalfi coast, car hire in Sorrento will allow you to indulge in adventures galore...
You are likely to be flying into Naples and here is the perfect place to start your adventure. You may want to sample the region's famous dish, the classic Neapolitan pizza, in one of the many eateries around the town, take your pick from two contemporary art museums or visit the Castel Nuovo and Palazzo Reale for your history fix.
Another fantastic place to visit by car is Mount Vesuvius. This active volcano looming over Naples can be climbed and panoramic vistas experienced at the summit. You could then spend the afternoon in eerie Pompeii and/or Herculaneum, the two towns that were submerged in hot gas, ash and rock in 79AD when the volcano erupted. The inhabitants of the towns were suffocated, but years later, archaeologists discovered hollows in the volcanic ash where people had fallen during the disaster. These hollows have been filled with plaster, allowing visitors to see the people and buildings as they were in ancient times.
A drive along the Amalfi Coast should be another activity at the top of your list - but with its hairpin bends and steep drops, it is certainly not one for the faint-hearted! Master the winding roads though, and you will be rewarded with jaw-dropping scenery and can enjoy stopping off at villages such as pretty and quaint Ravello and beautiful Postiano. Taking a break in the vibrant and bustling town of Amalfi would allow you take a boat trip around the coast which would further allow you to see the region's outstanding beauty.
If you are feeling really adventurous, you could drive further afield and take a trip to Rome. If you plan to do this, it would be worth booking overnight accommodation to ensure that you get time to visit all of the historic city's iconic sights such as the Vatican, Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.
