International flights land at Terminal 1 at Naples Airport (NAP). From just outside, Curreri coaches leave for Sorrento multiple times a day from 9am to 7pm. They make several stops before arriving about 90 minutes later, and tickets costs about €6 (£5).
Private pre-booked cars are also available through Viator, and cost from around £16 for those seeking more luxurious Sorrento transfers. Taxis will be more expensive.
Alternatively, take a shuttle bus into central Naples, and then ride the train from Napoli Centrale to Sorrento. The half-hourly Circumvesuviana line journey takes 70 minutes and costs €3.30 (£2.80). It stops at Herculaneum and Pompeii en route.
While the town is small enough to navigate on foot, an efficient bus service also helps with getting around. This is particularly handy when accessing the ferry port of Marina Piccola, which is down (and then later up) a steep hill.
From Sorrento’s station, bus D runs to hub Piazza Tasso. Buses B and C run from Piazza Tasso down to Marina Piccola and back every 20 minutes.
A lift connects Marina Grande – the fishermen’s harbour with a small public beach (you can do better elsewhere) and some private swimming piers (ditto) – with Sorrento proper. This simple method of getting around Sorrento costs just €1 (90p).
Between June and September, SITA Bus operates a service from Sorrento to the Amalfi Coast towns of Positano and Amalfi – from which you can go on to Ravello.
Grab a window seat, so you can make the most of the views of sheer green hills, sparkling waters and colourful hamlets – but look away when your veteran driver pilots a nerve-wracking course close to the lip of a mountain hairpin bend.
Marina Piccola has multiple ferry services to Capri, as well as departures to Naples. There are 15 daily crossings from Sorrento to Capri in peak season: each takes 20 minutes and costs a grin-and-bear-it €14 (£11.80).
Alilauro and NLG currently operate the routes to Naples’ Molo Beverello wharf during summer. Also in summer, you can take various cruises from Sorrento along the Amalfi Coast.
