Sorrento – the town of Lemoncello

Sorrento is a town perched on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. It’s a beautiful town famous for the aperitif Lemoncello. Sorrento is a great place to wander around especially in the evenings when the main road is closed so people can promenade down the main street, or people watch in the many bars and restaurants.

We also used it as a base to visit other places in the area like taking a boat to Capri, the local train ride to Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum, Pompeii and Naples or the bus to Positano on the beautiful Amafi coast.
