How to Spend 1 Day in Sorrento

How to Spend 1 Day in Sorrento

Whether visiting on a day trip from Naples or stopping by on route to the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento in southwestern Italy has much to offer visitors. One day is just enough time to see the sights, sample Sorrentine cuisine, and admire the coastal views. Here’s how to spend one day in Sorrento. 

Morning: City Sights and Coastal Views

A hop-on hop-off bus tour is an ideal way to discover Sorrento. Ride the bus out of the city to Massa Lubrense, enjoying the scenery as you wind through lemon orchards and olive groves, and climb along the coast of Sorrento Peninsula. Jump out at the hilltop Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi for a view across the Gulf of Naples and Gulf of Salerno, and spot Capri Island and Mt. Vesuvius in the distance. Afterwards, return to town and explore Sorrento’s sights on foot. Stroll the lively Piazza Lauro and Piazza Tasso, and browse the shops along Corso Italia.

Afternoon: A Taste of Sorrento

Foodies will find plenty to get excited about in Sorrento—the coastal town is known for fresh seafood, gnocchi, and lemons. Join a food tasting tour and sample specialties such as fried rice balls and sweet pastries. Along the way, stop to admire landmarks such as the Basilica of Sant’Antonino and Sorrento Cathedral, and take in views from Villa Comunale park. Take a cooking class to learn to make gnocchi, gelato, or Treccia mozzarella under a chef's guidance. After filling up on tasty foods, don’t forget to pick up a bottle of lemon liqueur (limoncello) as a souvenir.

Night: Sunset Cruise

Sorrento is known for its sunsets, and the best views are from the water. Set sail on a sunset cocktail cruise or a dinner cruise, stopping along the way to take a swim in the warm Mediterranean waters. There are many tour options available. Some cruises take you to Positano along the Amalfi Coast, while others might visit nearby Capri Island. The island is striking at sunset and heading ashore at night means you have the beaches to yourself.
