About Sorrento, Italy

Sorrento is a coastal town in southwestern Italy, facing the Bay of Naples on the Sorrentine Peninsula.  Perched atop cliffs that separate the town from its busy marinas, it’s known for sweeping water views and Piazza Tasso, a cafe-lined square.  The historic center of narrow alleys is home to the Chiesa di San Francesco, a 14th-century church with a tranquil cloister.
