Read the VT travel pages about Sorrento for info and tips written by VT visitors (including me) and locals:

http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/Italy/Campania/Sorrento-142235/TravelGuide-Sorrento.html

As for prices, Sorrento (like all tourist-popular places in Europe) is not cheap. You will spend less if you eat and drink away from the main touristy areas. Try to use cafes and bars rather than restaurants:prices for food in these is always a bit lower.

It is a lovely area, certainly, with much to eplore. Take the cheap, frequent Circumvesuviana train to Pompeii (station Pompeii-Scavo-Villa dei Mysteri): it stops right outside the site entrance. Take the same train further towards Naples to ercolano, and walk down the hill to ancient Herculaneum.......an entirely different experience.

Circumvesuviana train timetables in English here:

Take the bus along the Amalfi coast road for stunning views. Get off at Positano, and at Amalfi, to explore (both places are more expensive than Sorrenot, so be warned). Buses leave from outside the Circumvesuviana station, buy tickets from the newsagents at the station entrance. Bus timetables here, under Quadro 15:

Take the bus up to Ravello from Amalfi as well 9timetable on same link). It's a beautiful place.

Get the ferry or hydrofoil from Sorrento over to Capri. a lovely island to walk around (very few vehicles, very few roads) but even more expensive......take a packed lunch! Make sure you visit the Arco Naturale and Villa Jovis.........and the Blue Grotto as well, if you wish. Ferry/hydrofoil timetables here:

There are also boats which hop up and down the coast. During July you will have a good choice of routes. You could, for example, go to Amalfi on the bus and return by boat (or vice versa). www.metrodelmare.com

There are lovely walks in the hills around Sorrento......take the bus to Sant'Agata, for example, but July will be hot.

Sorrento only has very limited beach space so do expect to feel like a sardine. I prefer the Marina Grande beach (about 20 minutes walk from the town centre) although there is also a thin strip of beach near where the ferries and hydrofoils dock.

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Meal times

by malkin

Meals are taken later than we may be used to. Bear this in mind for two reasons:
1 - If you want to get local atmosphere in restaurants avoid eating before 2 p.m. at mid-day and 9 p.m. for the evening meal
2 - Remember that many shops will close at about 2 p.m. and stay shut for a good couple of hours.

Sorrento Car Drivers

by SFHulaGIrl

Sorrento Car Drivers will pick you up from the Naples airport or the train station and deliver you directly to your door (or someone else's) in Sorrento for a mere 60E. My flight was delayed, but my driver was kind enough to wait. Giampiero was my driver, and he was a wealth of information about what to see, what to buy, what to pay, etc. Sorrento Car Drivers will also pick you in Rome and take you to Sorrento.

Amazing Gelato!

by Jetgirly about Gelateria Davide

Gelateria Davide creates gelatos that absolutely must be tasted, using fresh local ingredients. Two highlights include Profumi di Sorrento with a blend of local citrus fruits (what a zing!) and the rich, creamy taste of mixed nuts in Noci di Sorrento. There are also old Italian favorites like Stracciatella ("vanilla" with chocolate pieces) and Gianduja (chocolate and hazelnut). Make sure you've seen the choices on the other side of the cash register before you make a decision!

Positano

by HORSCHECK

Take a bustrip along the Amalfi Drive to the seaside resort of Positano. Positano (3.700 inhabitants) is embroidered by narrow alleyways descending in steep steps down the green mountains to the beautiful bay. It is dominated by the Dome Santa Maria Assunta.
In high season Positano can be overrun by busloads of tour groups.

Sorrento 2010

by windoweb

"Sorrento The Valley of the Mills"

In the centre of Sorrento, behind Tasso Square, it is possible to admire from above - The Valley of the Mills.

The name "Valley of the Mills", derives from the existence of a mill - functioning since the beginning of the '900's - used for grinding wheat.
