Sorrento, Italy

My first love in Italy was Venezia. My second was Sorrento. If you are planning a trip to Italy, don’t miss this gem on the Amalfi Coast. The scenery is some of the most beautiful I’ve ever witnessed in my life.

The view from our hotel balcony included the Vesuvius Volcano.

From Sorrento, we took a ferry to the Isle of Capri. To see the best views on the island, we rode in a convertible taxi up to Ana Capri and had this incredible view of the coast.

Shopping in Sorrento was both plentiful and diverse. There were souvenir shops (better than anywhere I’ve been), clothing with Italian leather and high end fashion, as well as inexpensive shops for those of us who were spending most of their budget on the trip itself.

Come to the Amalfi Coast and enjoy the food, shopping, the scenery, and next…   a walk through the ruins of Pompeii.

  1. The pictures were beautiful. I loved the scenery. I will never see Italy in person but your articles and pictures sure give me a good look at what I have missed. I will be be blessed to see this beautiful country through the lens of your camera.

  2. Lovely reminders of our time in Sorrento. You got to do some shopping which sounds fun. How long were you there? We got there mid afternoon. Had the next day on Capri and left the next day. Too short! It rained early morning or during the night I think so our pictures of Capri were cloudy. I hope if you haven’t viewed my Italy posts you will.Working on doing a button to click on all the posts of Italy. I’ve done Venice, Assisi, Positano, Capri, Pompeii, and Rome. I lack Florence and Pisa.

    We didn’t get to go to Anna Capri or the Blue Lagoon because of the weather that day. Choppy sea. I felt a little sick riding the big ferry.

    1. Bonnie, we spent 3 nights in Sorrento, but when I go back, I want to spend more. I will definitely check out your Italy posts.

  3. Beautiful scenery indeed! Funny, when I think of Italy, I don’t think of palm trees, but there they are! Maybe the reason I love them so much because it’s in my Italian blood.
