Apartments & villas in Sorrento
Sorrento is a coastal town on the Sorrento Peninsula, located in front of the Bay of Naples, in the south-western part of Italy. Built on the cliff that separates it from its crowded port, Sorrento is famous for its panoramic view of the sea and Piazza Tasso, dotted with coffee. The historic center is a maze of narrow streets where the church of San Francesco is located, a 14th century building with a tranquil cloister.
An insanely beautiful rugged stretch of coastline winding its way from Salerno to Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast is like nowhere else in the world. Spilling down the hillside to an azure champagne-like sea, its colorful, UNESCO-protected villages hemmed by soaring cliffs and intertwined with fragrant lemon groves, sparkle like charms on a bracelet.
Steep, narrow lanes zigzagging up and down the stunning vertical landscape offer spine-tingling glimpses of the Med down below, while tiny, sun-kissed piazzettas beckon you to linger a while and soak in the ravishing beauty of it all while sipping fresh, ice-cold limoncello. But the Costiera is much more than just dazzling blue bays, soul-stirring views, and picturesque pastel-hued villages embedded into the cliffs – it’s also culture, art, history, and fabulous food, all wrapped up in dolce vita idleness.
Once the capital of a powerful maritime republic, this lovely port town with a distinctly Moorish feel pairs its historical and cultural treasures with stunning coastal views and an animated beach scene. Lined with colorful sun loungers and umbrellas, the wide and pebbly Marina Grande is the liveliest and most famous beach in the area, while the tiny, secluded cove of Santa Croce has some of the cleanest blue waters along the coast.
Situated midway between Sorrento and Salerno, Amalfi town may be touristy, but its glorious setting – between sea and terraced lemon groves – will never cease to seduce.
