Excursions : Sorrento
Sorrento was the birthplace of the poet Toruato Tasso, author of Gerusalemme Liberata.
The town was quite famously featured in the early 20 Century song “Torna A surriento” (Come back to Sorrento) with lyrics by Gianbattista De Curtis.
The enchanting landscape with its cliffs, the superb views over the gulf of Naples to Vesuvius, make Sorrento a traditional international holiday resort. It is an ideal place to come on holiday, a great tourist attraction also for the vicinity of popular places easy to reach such at the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples, Vesuvius, Positano, Amalfi, Ischia and Capri Islands.
