Sorrento – Arrive in Historical Naples and Transfer to Charming Sorrento
The terraced cliffs of Sorrento offer a perfect view of the Bay of Naples to the lingering summit of the legendary Mount Vesuvius. Your private transfer will meet you at Naples International Airport and escort you along the shores of the Bay to the charming streets of Sorrento. Your luxurious hotel offers a stunning view of the shoreline from the spectacular limestone cliffs that border the town. The Marina Grande stretches along Sorrento’s shores, guarded by the fortifications first laid by Greek settlers more than four millennia ago. The walls were rebuilt in the 16th-century after an invasion by Turkish forces. The marina resembles a small fishing village in its own right as if disconnected from the larger town of Sorrento.
Small boats rest on the shore in front of pastel-painted homes while larger boats remained moored along the natural harbor. The gorgeous clock tower of the cathedral punctuates the skyline along the main road of Corso Italia as the base of the three-story tower was laid during the Roman Empire. The simple exterior of the Church contrasts the remarkable interior as doors cast in Constantinople lead visitors into a gallery decorated with round arches as paintings by Nicola Malinconico that illustrates Biblical history. Near the old walls of the city, you will visit a celebrated restaurant for your first taste of the regional cuisine, known for excellent fresh fish bought each morning from the Marina Grande. The restaurant will fill with the aroma of grilled seafood accentuated with a drizzle of fresh lemon.
