Stroll through the alleyways and streets in Sorrento’s romantic old quarter, stopping every so often to admire the attractions and savor some local treats.


After departing from the tender pier, you will soon reach an elevator that will take you up to Villa Comunale, the largest park in Sorrento. Although lush and leafy, the clifftop park is known more for its spectacular views of the bay and Mt. Vesuvius than its natural beauty.


Continuing on, you will walk through the old quarter of Sorrento, a wonderfully atmospheric section of town. The guide will point out some of the most historical landmarks while offering insight into the founding of Sorrento.


The old quarter is full of restaurants and shops selling handmade gelato, an icy treat synonymous with Italy. You will pause for a refreshing cup of gelato, a dessert usually flavored with seasonal ingredients such as hazelnuts and Sorrento lemons, a highly fragrant extraordinary juicy variety.


As you walk down narrow Via San Cesareo, you will see artisan workshops and all sorts of alleyways lined with one-of-a-kind shops. The ambiance couldn’t be more inviting as you join the local residents browsing for merchandise such as fine leather goods, embroidered clothes and lemon products. Be sure to notice the statue of Torquato Tasso in the square named after Italy’s most revered Renaissance poet, who was born in Sorrento.


Following a coffee break in a traditional café, you will enjoy free time to explore further before walking back to the pier.
