Holiday highlights

SorrentoSorrento - Set on a spectacular headland, Sorrento boasts wonderful views across the Bay of Naples to Capri and Ischia. The town’s historic quarter radiates from Via San Cesareo, where there’s excellent shopping and a host of restaurants and pavement cafes.  Further highlights include the peaceful cloisters of San Francesco, the Duomo (cathedral), the Correale Museum and atmospheric Marina Grande, the original fishing village at sea level.

Capri - The island of Capri is famously a playground for the glitterati, but it is also well-known for its natural beauty. During the day the light dips the island into different colours and enchants the viewer.

Amalfi Coast – The winding road from the Sorrento Peninsula to Amalfi is one of Europe’s most scenic routes, with views over the pretty village of Positano, Capri and the Galli Islands.  The former maritime superpower of Amalfi is today a welcoming resort town, with a beautiful cathedral dedicated to Sant’Andrea.  
Mount Vesuvius - One of few decade volcanoes left in Europe, Mount Vesuvius offers great hiking and spectacular views. Infamous for destroying the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79AD, it is now a national park and a walker’s paradise.

Inlaid woodwork – Sorrento has a proud tradition of handcrafted ‘intarsio’, or marquetry.  You can see fine examples of this craft, including heirloom furniture, at the Bottega della Tarsia Lignea Museum. There are several showrooms and shops in the town, where you can also buy smaller inlaid woodwork items such as pretty music boxes.
