Chiesa di Sant'Anna
A lovely little church tucked away in the middle of Marina Grande, the old fishing port of Sorrento.
Originally built by the fishermen of the San Giovanni in Fontibus Brotherhood, it was first dedicated to souls in Purgatory but later to Santa Anna (who is the patron saint of the village).
Sant'Anna has her saints day on July 26th, so if you are around Sorrento at that time you can expect processions, music, food and lots of fireworks.
excellent food and very reasonably prices - Service was a little slow but we didn't mind too much but if your in a hurry you might want to give this place a miss.
There is also a small plaground beside the restaurant for kids which is great.
Wine is so mucher cheaper here than in around the main square restaurants
one bottle we got was €30 in Laterna and here it only cost €13!! Smoked Salmon starter is superb and the The Steaks for main course are also very good.
See how many cats you can spot sunbathing
Sorrento seem to be obsessed with cats. Everywhere you look there are cats sunbathing on cars, hiding under upturned boats etc. There are also loads of sounvenir's with cats on. I love cats so I loved watching them all. See the pictures I have uploaded to check out the cats sunbathing at Marina Grande.
Visit the chaotic, overcrowded, dirty and noisy town of Naples. It is the third largest city of Italy with its own charm in the shadow of the Vesuvio. Plenty of shops, markets, cafes, bars and narrow alleyways make your trip unforgettable. But always take care of your valuables!
