Teetering on the edge of craggy cliffs overlooking the enchanting Bay of Naples, Sorrento scores a perfect ten when it comes to natural beauty. The dazzling sun lights up the Sorrentine skies and shines a hazy spotlight over the pink and blue buildings, which are huddled together within a rocky embrace. A grove of lemon trees tumble down to a glorious beach, washed by turquoise waters.
This Italian treasure trove has lured thousands of ships to its evocative bounties. The Turks, Greeks and Romans have all been struck by Sorrento’s cupid arrow. Vivid imaginations conjure up the nimble Greek boats riding the rolling waves and Ulysses listening to the haunting song of the devious mermaids.
Sorrento is also the quaint gateway to the archaeological wonders of Pompeii. A ghostly scene of everyday life frozen in time: empty villas, paved streets and the white casts of inhabitants that lay below Mount Vesuvius as nature’s eternal tomb.
