The town of Sorrento clings to the rocky cliffs along the Bay of Naples standing 180 feet above sea level and dipping down to the shoreline that glows with colorful fishing boats wading in the azure water. Upon your arrival at Naples International Airport, your private transfer will escort you around the glistening bay and past the looming peak of the infamous volcano, Mount Vesuvius to reach the captivating streets of Sorrento. The gorgeous scenery of rugged rockface bordering the cobblestone streets and pastel-colored homes has attracted travelers since the 19th century when artists like Lord Byron and Charles Dickens wished to bask in the splendor of the bay. The depth of history emerges from the city walls, which date back to the Greek settlements made nearly 3,000 years ago with fortifications made during the Roman era and the Middle Ages.
Before exploring the town, you can relax in the comforts of your luxury accommodation while overlooking the shimmering waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to embrace the ever-present aroma of the sea and the lingering scent of citrus from the bright lemon groves on the outskirts of Sorrento. In the evening, you can visit the neighboring town of Nerano, located halfway between Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast possessing the gorgeous Marina del Cantone, a beach with warm water gently lapping against the pebbles. At night, romance sparks beneath starlit sky as restaurants near the shoreline cook the local specialty, spaghetti alla Nerano, a dish consisting of spaghetti noodles, zucchini, and cheese.
