City train Sorrento

by DavidWilby

I recently visited Sorrento and went on the city train and purchased their dvd
"Passeggiando" per Sorrento. I would like to buy another copy of the dvd for my
aunty as a christmas present. Does anyone know how or where I can buy one?

Re: City train Sorrento

That was a hard one....found this though, - it may help as Amazon, does have a connection to those DVDs.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Passeggiando+per+Sorrento&x=21&y=20

Apparently they have 60 different products.
You may be able to track it down from there.

Here is some Passeggiando on YouTube....

You could also email the Circumvesuviana people directly and ask wbout the DVD.....they may have a supplier, or may even sell you one themselves.

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Good Friday Processions

by Callavetta

On Good Friday there are two processions that take place on the streets of Sorrento. Early in the wee hours of the morning (at 3 am) is the Processione Bianca when people walk through the streets chanting "Miserere" representing the Blessed Mother searching for her Son, who has been condemned to death.

At 7:30 pm is Processione Nero, when people dress in black and mourn the death of the Savior.

You can watch the processions on the Sorrento Webcam:

Circumvesuviana

by barryg23

We took the Circumvesuviana train from Naples to get to Sorrento. This is a regional train which covers practically every town along the Bay of Naples between Naples and Sorrento. The journey to Sorrento cost 3.10 Euros for a single, and it lasted just over an hour.

Downtown Trattoria/Pizzeria

by malkin about The Red Lion

Don't let the name put you off, it is a nice Trattoria/Pizzaria . There was a good mix of locals and tourists and the staff were friendly. Good value for money. We spent 32.50 euros for two including local wine and left completely full up. A complimentary glass of Limoncello (the local lemon based liqueur) was given to every customer when we were there. Situated one block away from the train station.

Capri

by Tom_Fields

Off the coast near Sorrento is the island of Capri. A favorite retreat of wealthy Romans, it has attracted visitors ever since ancient times. The Roman Emperor Tiberius (who was in power when Jesus was crucified) had a villa here.

Capri is famed for its rugged beauty, its spectacular views, and its lemons. When life gives you lemons, make liqueur. Capri's liqueur is famous worldwide. Be sure to try some. The island is also known for its crafts, especially furniture.

The funicular cable cars go up to the top of Mt Castiglione, for the best views of the island (please avoid if you're afraid of heights). The Augusto Garden is another popular spot. You can also shop, browse, and just stroll about the medieval quarter of the town.

Come to Sorrento

by Tom_Fields

"Jewel of the Bay of Naples"

On the southern shore of the Bay of Naples, across from Naples and Mt Vesuvius, lies Sorrento. This town has long been a popular destination for tourists from northern Europe, especially the British.

Its origins are so ancient that little is known of them. The name came from the Greek legend of the Sirens (remember them from Homer's Odyssey?), whose enticing songs would lure sailors to their deaths on the treacherous rocks along the shore. It probably began as a Greek colony, sometime not longer after Homer.

The town's layout shows a Roman influence, too. An ancient Roman villa stands over the cliffs outside the town. Later invaders included the Normans and the Ottoman Turks. Now most visitors are tourists, who are the mainstay of the local economy.

In addition to tourism, the town relies on agriculture; its warm, sunny Mediterranean climate is ideal for the cultivation of citrus fruits like oranges and lemons. The famed Italian lemon liqueur comes from this area.
