Stellar Sorrento has one of the most enviable locations conceivable, with desirable proximity to Naples, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Positano and Pompeii. The Bay of Naples coastal town has more than geography as a notable claim to fame. The home of limoncello and amaro producers, both indelible titans of Italian spirits, also knows how to drink, eat and live well. Clearly, life is good in Sorrento.
A sleepy but altogether welcome step back in time, with settlement ruins that date back to 600 BC, Sorrento has been a formidable milieu of inspiration for the likes of Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Keats, Goethe and generations of Italian writers and artists.

As a stopover and point of access to a wide variety of notable destinations up and down the coast, not to mention the region of Campania in Italy, it gets no better.
