Naples Tours presents:
Sorrento is a small town in Campania, southern Italy, with some 16,500 inhabitants. It is a popular tourist destination which can be reached easily from Naples and Pompeii, as it lies at the southeastern end of the Circumvesuviana rail line..
The town overlooks the Bay of Naples as the key place of the Sorrentine Peninsula, and many viewpoints allow sight of Naples itself, Vesuvius and the Isle of Capri. The Amalfi Drive, connecting Sorrento and Amalfi, is a narrow road that threads along the high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea.
In the 1800s, Sorrento became one of the most renowned tourist destinations of Italy, a trend which continues today. Famous people who visited it include Lord Byron, Keats, Goethe, Henrik Ibsen and Sir Walter Scott.
