Six separate airlines operate non-stop flights to Sorrento’s nearest airport in Naples – sometimes referred to as Capodichino after the surrounding suburb – from London Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN) and Stansted (STN).
British Airways, easyJet, TUI, Thomas Cook Airlines and Italian carrier Meridiana all depart from Gatwick. British Airways and easyJet have the most services: both fly at least once a day during summer, and five days a week in winter (which only constitutes January for easyJet).
easyJet flies to Naples from Luton, and easyJet has additional services from Stansted. Ryanair also flies from Stansted to Naples.
Naples-bound flights for those Sorrento-goers who are based elsewhere in the UK are readily available as well, although some may be seasonal.
TUI has direct summer services from Bristol (BRS), Birmingham (BHX), Bournemouth (BOH), East Midlands (EMA), Manchester (MAN), Newcastle (NCL) and Glasgow (GLA), while easyJet departs from Bristol, Liverpool (LPL) and Edinburgh (EDI) during the warmer months. Jet2 flies out of Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester and East Midlands.
With so many flights and so many low-cost carriers involved, fares to Naples stay competitive on London routes: the cheapest flights for Sorrento holidays can be as little as £30. For the very cheapest trips, fly out in spring and autumn, or during winter on year-round routes – avoiding the festive period.
Your chances of a cheap Sorrento break will be enhanced if you snap up a flight deal, so look out for easyJet’s autumn flight sales in late summer.
It’s possible to get to Naples and then on to Sorrento by train, using high-speed connections via Paris and Turin or Milan. You can do it in less than 20 hours using a night train from Paris, but we’d recommend a night’s layover in one of the cities.
Just remember than train rides will be more expensive than flights, so don’t come by rail if your priority is a cheap Sorrento break.
Driving is another option. From London to Naples flat out, you’re looking at about 19 hours, assuming you observe the speed limit and get lucky with the traffic. From Naples, it’s about another hour and a half to reach Sorrento itself. Getting there this way will be epic but memorable, and you’d be missing out if you didn’t break the journey up.
