I’ve been dreaming of the South of Italy for quite some time now. So I was super excited once I booked my plane ticket to finally go last year. I spent the best 4 days and got to see some amazing places, despite the short amount of time I was there for. We stayed at Sorrento which technically is not part of the Amalfi Coast but the Sorrentine Peninsula. Nevertheless, I could not have asked for a better location to start my Southern Italian adventure. Besides being beyond beautiful, Sorrento is a great home base if you are planning a trip down the Amalfi Coast. It is situated right in the middle so you have Pompeii and Naples to the north, Capri to west, and the Amalfi Coast cities to your east. All within easy reach and distance.
The South of Italy is definitely a place very close and dear to my heart and I cannot wait until I get to go again and do some more exploring. In the meantime, I put together a short slide set to show you what I think are some must-do things while sun tanning and drinking limoncello in the beautiful Sorrento.
9 Things to do in Sorrento, Italy
Eat gelato every single day
The gelato experience is something every traveler visiting Italy should enjoy, at least once. Or in my case once daily! Sorrento has many good gelaterias around town. Visit a few and sample their gelatos to find your favorite. Hint: Look for gelaterias whose gelatos have a more natural color. Avoid those that look like a neon sign.
