How to Spend 3 Days in Sorrento

How to Spend 3 Days in Sorrento

Strategically located between the Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento is the ideal basecamp for exploring the Italian coast. Three days allows you to see the highlights, especially when you use tours and day trips to help maximize your time. Here’s how to spend three days in Sorrento.

Day 1: City Sightseeing

A hop-on hop-off bus tour is an ideal way to discover Sorrento, combining the convenience of a guided tour with the flexibility of independent sightseeing. Start by heading out of the city along the Sorrentine Peninsula and jumping out to admire the views at Masa Lubrense and Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi. Return to Sorrento center to stroll through Villa Comunale park and ride the lift down to Marina Grande for lunch at an oceanfront seafood restaurant. In the afternoon, explore the rest of Sorrento’s sights on foot. Stop by Piazza Lauro and Piazza Tasso, snap photos of the Basilica of Sant’Antonino and Sorrento Cathedral, and browse the shops along Corso Italia—perhaps picking up Sorrento’s famous limoncello (lemon liqueur) to take home. In the evening, set sail along the coast on a sunset cruise or perhaps cruise out to Capri island, stopping along the way to swim in the Mediterranean.

Day 2: Cruise the Amalfi Coast

Just south of Sorrento is the Amalfi Coast, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its picturesque coastline. Take a full-day tour to soak up the scenery without worrying about directions or parking, or self-drive along the coastal roads or cruise the shore. Popular stops along the way include the coastal village of Positano, where you can admire the multi-colored houses clinging to the cliffside and walk down to the beaches below. Further along the coast, the fishing village of Amalfi affords coastal views, while nearby Ravello has a number of notable medieval buildings. After a busy day of traveling, relax with dinner at one of Sorrento’s restaurants. It’s not hard to find tasty cuisine in Sorrento, and the town has several Michelin-starred restaurants.

Day 3: Visit Ancient Pompeii

Another UNESCO World Heritage Site within day-trip distance of Sorrento is the archaeological site of Pompeii. Buried in ash after the eruption of nearby Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, the ancient Roman city is one of the best-preserved in the world. A guided walking tour offers extra insight into the ancient ruins and covers all the highlights including the Forum, Thermal Baths, and Teatro Grande amphitheater. After a morning exploring Pompeii, choose to visit the nearby Herculaneum archaeological site or take in the views from Mt Vesuvius. Alternatively, head to Naples for a pizza lunch and spend the afternoon sightseeing in the city. On your final evening in Sorrento, enjoy some traditional Italian entertainment by attending an opera concert or a Sorrento musical theater show
