Flights to Sorrento
Is there public transportation?
To this question I think I have answered in part. It is very well connected by trains and buses to the surrounding cities. Sorrento itself is a relatively small town, it does not surpass the 16.000 inhabitants. Unless you have some special need, you do not need to take a bus to go to the museums, especially if you stay near the center where practically everything is at hand.
If the bus does not convince you to hike you can always rent a car, a motorcycle or a bicycle. It is an almost permanent service in Italian tourist villages that you can take advantage of not to depend on schedules. You can also call a taxi, but I warn you that it is very expensive !!
Interesting activities and gastronomy
The first thing is to know the bowels of Sorrento. A tour of the old town will reveal its most hidden secrets. The cathedral presents a mixture of interesting styles, since it was built in 1474, it was Romanesque but the Renaissance was beginning to appear. In addition inside there are different pieces that correspond to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Following the trip back in time, the church of San Francesco also shows an original combination. Its first construction dates from the 8th century, but an extension was made in the 14th century. The mix of styles and cultures They make this monument a special place. Something similar happens with the Basilica of San Antonino. It was built in the ninth century, but inside there are remains of Roman culture. The style is a very interesting Byzantine-Roman mixture.
Other archaeological relics are the Quattrocentesca House, the Palazzo Veniero, Palazzo Correale or the ruins of an old mill that lie behind Piazza Tasso. The medieval walls They are also interesting.
To transport yourself to the life of the ordinary Sorrentinos of the time, a good idea is to visit the Bottega della Tarsia Lignea museum, based above all on art. Paintings and frescoes are the main course, although you can also learn a lot about the inlay, the woodwork typical of Campania. By the way, this art is still valid and attracts a lot of attention from visitors. On the other hand the Correale di Terranova museum focuses on Italian life of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It is a collection of unique pieces that belonged to a noble family, the Correale family: furniture, porcelain and various historical finds.
However, if you prefer to focus on the current life of Sorrento you can immerse yourself in the many shows and traditional festivals. With the Tasso theater you will discover the Tarantella, a traditional Sorrentine dance.
The shopping center offers you an incredible variety of products. He market Tuesday is remarkable. There are many typical stores of Greco-Roman origin, with artisan products made of wood, ceramics and wax; silver and coral jewelry ... all handmade.

The best beaches of Sorrento
Being honest, Sorrento is not a place where tourists go to look for beach.
It is practically surrounded by monañas and cliffs, and that makes it difficult to access the two beaches that it has: Marina Piccola and Marina Grande.
The road to Marina Grande, for example, borders a spectacular cliff.
But beware, that does not mean they are not pretty. On the contrary, it has charm.
If you go a bit south of Sorrento you will find a more crowded beach, Point of the Capo.
It's some distance away and you'll have to take a bus, but it's worth seeing.
Where to stay
And to enjoy all these activities you need to rest well. Which area is best to sleep in Sorrento?
As I said before, it's a small town, so all the hotels are practically grouped in the middle, Via Correale and Corso Italia. You can find accommodation for all budgets: luxury and cheap.
