Sorrento Guide

The Italian town of Sorrento is located in Camania in southern Italy and overlooks the Bay of Naples. There are many amazing views from the town towards the city of Naples, Vesuvius and across to the island of Capri. As it is close to Naples and Pompeii and at the south eastern end of the Circumvesuviana railway line, Sorrento is a very popular tourist destination. The town is also on the Amalfi Drive which is an 80 km narrow road that follows the coast's high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea between Sorrento and Amalfi. Aside from the beautiful towns and villages along the road, the road itself is a popular tourist attraction in its own right because of the spectacular views to be had.

The town itself does not have a great deal of attractions to offer and is therefore principally used by tourists as a base from which to explore the surrounding areas. Although, the 14th century Chiesa di San Francesco, with its flowery cloister, is worth visiting. There is also a small garden next to the church which has spectacular views across the Bay of Naples and is a good place to stop for a little peace and quiet. South of Corso Italia there is a medieval cathedral, and more of the town's history can be seen at Museo Correale, near the station.

From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.


Positano Guide

The Italian town of Positano is located along the beautiful Amalfi Coast and is widely regarded by many as one of the most picturesque coastal towns in the country. The town itself has a good number of pretty pastel coloured houses that seem to cling to the hillside next to the sea and visitors should be aware that there are a large number of steep streets and stairways in the town which may be a challenge for some. Despite the town now being a popular holiday destination it has still managed to retain a great deal of its charming fishing village atmosphere that has stunning cliff-hugging roads, lively beachfronts and some breathtaking views. Apart from lazing in the sun on one of the town's beaches popular things to do include taking a cruise along the Amalfi Coast, taking in the lovely view of the Bay of Salerno, or trekking along one of the regions walking trails which includes the stunning cliff side path that connects the Spiaggia Grande and Spiaggia del Fornillo beaches.

Ferries to Amalfi, Capri and Salerno depart from the town's harbour.
