Sorrento – a wonderful mix of historic architecture sitting comfortably alongside a modern resort. The Old Town, which still has evidence of its Roman origins, sits high on the cliffs overlooking the port and the famous Alimuri beach below. At Piazza Tasso the road heads very steeply down towards the port through the rocks. At the bottom the road opened out onto the port area, with cafes, shops, a small park and the booking offices for the ferries taking visitors across to Capri. The journey to Capri takes around 30 minutes. From here it is possible to easily visit Capri, Ischia, Vesuvius, Pompei, Mount Faito, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello. The port is a lively place to take a stroll and watch the ferry darting across the clear colt-blue waters leaving a white splash of water in its wake, or watch the fishermen along the waterfront or maybe take lunch in a seafront restaurant which juts out over the sea and enjoy the stunning beauty that is all around. Sorrento is not just beautiful to look at but also is wonderfully fragrant, everywhere you look there are huge lemons dangling from trees the famous Amalfi lemons, big as melons, from which comes the delicious Limoncello liqueur. To add to the fragrance are the masses of wisteria growing in profusion along the high stone walls leaving its sweet smell hanging in the air. Look out for:- The 15th century Cathedral, the church of Saint Francis of Assisi, the Correale Museum,
