Why go to Sorrento

Go on holiday to Sorrento and you'll be rewarded with stunning seaside views, sunshine galore, elegant small-town charm, fabulous food and ludicrously easy access to nearby Capri, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. What's not to like?

Fifty kilometres (30 miles) south of Naples along the Bay of Naples, Sorrento's pastel-coloured houses and Renaissance palazzi teeter high above a busy little harbour.

A handsome place of old handicraft shops and cafes spilling onto piazzas, Sorrento has a cultivated air that has lured tourists for 200 years. Past visitors include Henrik Ibsen, who finished Peer Gynt here, and long-term resident Maxim Gorky. The atmosphere's particularly seductive on balmy summer nights, when everyone sits outside and drinks wine, and chatter fills the lanes.

Outside town, the bay glistens through long rows of lemon trees and olive vines, and Mount Vesuvius skulks menacingly in the distance.
