Silversea Luxury Cruises To SORRENTO

SORRENTO
SORRENTO

Sorrento may have become a jumping-off point for visitors to Pompeii, Capri, and Amalfi, but you can find countless reasons to love it for itself. The Sorrentine people are fair-minded and hardworking, bubbling with life and warmth. The tuff cliff on which the town rests is spread over the bay, absorbing sunlight, while orange and lemon trees waft their perfume in spring. Winding along a cliff above a small beach and two harbors, the town is split in two by a narrow ravine formed by a former mountain stream. View more

To the east, dozens of hotels line busy Via Correale along the cliff—many have "grand" included in their names, and some indeed still are. To the west, however, is the historic sector, which still enchants. It's a relatively flat area, with winding, stone-paved lanes bordered by balconied buildings, some joined by medieval stone arches. The central piazza is named after the poet Torquato Tasso, born here in 1544. This part of town is a delightful place to walk through. Craftspeople are often at work in their stalls and shops and are happy to let you watch; in fact, that's the point. Music spots and bars cluster in the side streets near Piazza Tasso.

Excursions in SORRENTO

Amalfi Coastal Drive

Travel the Amalfi Coast, considered one of the most beautiful coastal drives in the world. Explore the village of Amalfi, sample southern Italian cuisine, and shop for souvenirs and majolica ware on this full-day tour and transfer.


Tender ashore and meet the shuttle bus for the short drive to the upper terrace of Sorrento, where your coach awaits. Then, begin the approximate 1.5-hour drive along scenic the Amalfi Drive, the conventional name of a stretch of road which runs along the Amalfi Coast between the southern Italian towns of Sorrento and Amalfi, originally built by the Romans.


For the greater part of its route, the road is carved out of the side of the coastal cliffs, giving spectacular views down to the Tyrrhenian Sea and on the other side up to the towering cliffs above.


Amalfi

Amalfi is a romantic, Moorish-style resort town overlooking the Bay of Salerno at the foot of the steep Lattari Hills. In the centre of the town stands the 11th-century Cathedral of St. Andrew, said to hold the remains of the apostle. Distinctive for its black-and-white facade and its mosaics, the building features bronze doors cast in Constantinople in 1066 and a bell tower dating to the 13th century.


Upon arrival, your guide leads you to the main square, the Piazza del Duomo pointing out the main highlights, including the cathedral along the way. The next two hours are yours to explore the narrow alleyways lined with shops and boutiques and enjoy free time and lunch at any one of its many cafés at your own expense.


At the designated time, re-board the coach at the meeting area for the return drive to Sorrento via Vietri sul Mare.

Amalfi WalkingTour

Amalfi, a rare place where photographs simply don't do the sights justice, enjoy the world famous coastal drive to Amalfi. Explore up close and personal on this walking tour through the seaside village of the Amalfi Coast. Explore the small streets and walk in the footsteps of history where the beauty of this ancient place comes alive.

In the center of the town stands the 11th-century Cathedral of St. Andrew, said to hold the remains of the apostle. Distinctive for its black-and-white facade and its mosaics, the building features bronze doors cast in Constantinople in 1066 and a bell tower dating to the 13th century.

For those Guests interested, follow your guide and visit the monumental complex of the Cathedral of St. Andrew: the Bell Tower, the Cloister of Paradise, the Basilica of Crucifix, with its frescoed chapels and the museum with sacred treasure, The Crypt, built in 1206 to hold the sacred remains of St. Andrew Apostole, the Moorish style Cathedral, which features stunning the 11th century bronze door from Constantinople.

Continue on to the Amalfi Paper Museum, located in a 14th century medieval paper-mill and which hosts machineries and instruments used in the ancient paper-mills. The ancient technologies, restored and active, reconstruct the entire production cycle of the paper. Among the century-old tools in the museum it is possible to admire the ancient wooden mauls, operated by a hydraulic wheel; the press used to remove the water in excess from the paper; the continuous printing machine. The museum gives also the opportunity of assisting the handmade paper production and the functioning of the ancient water-mills, moved by the waters of the Canneto torrent.

Then, walk back to Piazza Duomo, dominated by the impressive façade of the St. Andrew Cathedral and have some free time for lunch on your own.


Your tour concludes when you return to Sorrento.
