Shopping on Corso Italia, Via San Cesareo, shops and markets

After admiring the religious buildings, you can indulge in a leisurely shopping spree in the boutiques of Corso Italia and Via San Cesareo or in the cheerful markets and craft stores to buy quaint souvenirs and typical products such as limoncello, confetti, and jams.

Also of interest is the Museo Bottega della Tarsia Lignea – The Museum Of Inlaid Wood Works – a rich collection of furniture and objects of typical Sorrento craftsmanship housed inside the historic Palazzo Pomarici Santomasi. The art of inlaying has ancient roots in this city, which is still home to more than seven hundred artisans dedicated to this activity.

A weekend in Sorrento: don’t miss a visit (and a dip) to Marina Grande

Beaches always deserve a place of honor among Campania’s favorite attractions. In Sorrento, it is impossible not to mention Marina Grande, a small jewel of a bay embraced by a charming seaside village.

Enjoy a swim in its crystal-clear waters and gaze at the view: from here, you can admire the Gulf of Naples, Vesuvius, the Capo di Sorrento coastline, and the characteristic tuff cliffs. Precisely for this fabulous landscape, Marina Grande has been the set of several films!

Two days in Sorrento: an evening at the Fauno is a must

What is there to do in the evening during your weekend in Sorrento? The city has several places where you can pleasantly pass the time.

This is where the unforgettable Lucio Dalla used to perform as a young artist, and it is said that it was in Sorrento that he composed his wonderful “Caruso”, one of his most famous hits.
