  • The old town of Sorrento

Whether it’s for a peaceful stroll or for a historical itinerary, during a day trip from Rome you must really see Sorrento’s historical centre. At the very heart of the town is the important Piazza Torquato Tasso, dedicated to the great poet and author of “Jerusalem Delivered”, who was born in Sorrento in 1544. Next to the main square lies the museum Correale di Terranova which houses paintings and art objects dating from the 16th up to the 19th century. The collection includes clocks, porcelain, as well as Italic and foreign archaeological finds relating to the Roman origin of the town. Corso Italia – the main street in the town center – is dotted with boutiques, bars and ice-cream shops.

  • Exploring arts and crafts during a Sorrento day trip

Sorrento is known for its crafts of great quality: its handmade lace and wooden inlays are world famous and are available in craft studios and shops around the old town. The town of Sorrento also houses the Museum of Wood Inlay in Pomarici Santomasi Palace. Among the places to visit you can not miss the church of St. Francis from Assisi with its small 14th century cloister, as well as the Basilica of St. Anthony. Do you want more history in a Rome to Sorrento day trip? Then visit the beautifully preserved medieval quarter of the town.

  • Shores and sea in Sorrento

Sorrento is lapped by the Tyrrhenian Sea. The beaches of Sorrento are not the largest of Neapolitan Riviera, though the rocky coastline offers breath-taking cliffs, coves and bays. Some coves can only be reached by boat: they are the most pristine and quiet of those along this coastline. But for those who cannot give up convenience during a Sorrento day trip, the beach of San Francesco is without doubt the best choice. It’s just a few minutes walk downhill from Piazza Tasso. Not far from the old town, the coastline is all packed with wild seashores and beach clubs.

  • Food in Sorrento, a taste of Southern Italy

Even food is a top feature of enchanting Sorrento. All Sorrento day trips from Rome must include at least one stop at a typical restaurant or to a grocery store in the old town where you can buy delicious local products. Limoncello and many other treats made with lemon can be tasted while strolling along the Corso. In the alleys of the old town you can find spices, hot peppers, dried tomatoes, typical cheeses and pastries like Babà. Sorrento also has a wide range of restaurants providing home-made dishes such as seafood chowder, the “Scialatelli” egg pasta, mozzarella and caciocavallo cheese and many more.

A maze of steep streets immersed in lemon and orange groves, the sea breeze, and one day to unlock all the hidden beauties of Sorrento and its peninsula. It’s a real pearl that has been painted and described by artists, poets and travellers alike. What else do you need to know to experience Sorrento yourself?
