boat trip to positano

by gunnywolf

are there any excursions by sea to Positano from Sorrento?

Re: boat trip to positano

by footstool

I was in Positano in early April 2007, before the seasonal ferries run from Positano to Sorrento. It is my understanding, tho, that even during "the season," there are only 1 or 2 boats per day. You can always take the SITA bus to Sorrento, and make connections to Capri or Ischia.

The boats do not run in the winter.

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Noce di Sorrento (Walnut of Sorrento)

by Balam

There is evidence that the walnut has been present in Campania since at least the first century AD. In Herculaneum, the charred remains of very similar shaped nuts to those of today have been found in the Casa D'Argo, while at Pompeii, paintings portraying walnuts have come to light in the Misteri Villa. The soil and climate in Campania are particularly favourable to the cultivation of this crop and have enabled it to spread over most of the plains and hills. It is not a coincidence that the most cultivated and valued Italian variety of walnut originated in Campania: it is the Sorrento cultivar, native to the Sorrento Peninsula where it has found a habitat with ideal environmental characteristics for the robust and harmonious development of the tree.

It has gradually spread from here to the classic fruit-farming areas of all the provinces of Campania (the majority with the suitable volcanic soil in the province of Naples), giving rise to a wide range of ecotypes, all known as the Sorrento Walnut, although there are two that are the most widely cultivated and marketed. There are two main types of Sorrento walnut which differ in shape: one has an elongated, regular and slightly pointed shell (the "pointed beard") at the top and rounded off at the base whilst the other is smaller and more rounded. The cultivation techniques, inspired by traditional growing methods, and the organoleptic character are the same for both types. In both cases the shell is light-coloured, not very wrinkled and thin enough to be broken with light pressure. The kernel - i.e. the edible part of the walnut - is cream coloured, not very oily, (though it can be preserved well for a certain period), substantial, soft and crunchy, with an extremely pleasant flavour and an unusual aroma and aftertaste, both when eaten fresh and after a period of preservation. The kernel also boasts a peculiar quality: unlike other types of walnut, it can be easily extracted whole, which makes it popular with the confectionery industry.

Parking

by GUYON

The parking is a real issue in Sorrento.
We did not find a reasonable priced hotel with a parking lot in the city itself.
The street parking is a paying parking everywhere in Sorrento. You must buy paying cards to fill in and to put behind the wind screen.

Landscapes of Sorrento

by Pawtuxet

There are so many wonderful views of Sorrento, you could hardly capture all of them. The little town sits at the edge of the Bay of Naples and the land rises to citrus filled hillsides all around. The blue of the waters is unparalleled.

Duomo dei Santi Filippo e Giacomo

by myriam_c

The cathedral of Sorrento, the Duomo dei Santi Filippo e Giacomo dates back from the 6th till 15th century. It has been remodeled ever since. Worth seeing are the archibishop's marble throne as well as other artworks and ornaments. .

WHERE IS MY PARADISE

by Olya777

"PART III"

The hyper-charming corner of the world, Amalif Coast of Italy... it will take your breath away. Natural beauty, blessed with mind-altering blue vistas, mountains, sea, lively people, bloody orange sun kissing the water... grand palazzos... or just a place to toast the setting sun with a drink...

Not to mention delicious food... Locals say they have "one foot in the fishing boat, one in the vineyard"—and a fortunate stance it is, as you can count on eating simple, fresh, seasonal food, and lots of it, with tutti i sapori della campagna verace (all the true flavors of the countryside).
