Sorrento is relaxing, quiet and picturesque town, an attraction for tourists for many centuries. I am ready to take you around through the History, Archaeology, Art, Architecture, Local life and Shops of this fabulous town. Set on a large tufo stone terrace overlooking the sea, Sorrento is a famous international place of residence facing the Gulf of Naples and the Mt. Vesuvius. The origin of the name probably comes from the Greek language but the legend attributes to a reference to the myth of the Sirens who tried to charm sailors including Ulysses. Today it’s a destination for guests coming from all over the world for its history, the atmosphere, the culinary traditions such as the famous ice creams, the limoncello liqueur or the Lemon delice… traditional shops selling ceramics, lace and inlay items produced here by local artisans for generations. Be ready - I am waiting for you!
