Day Trip to Sorrento, Italy Travel Guide Video Transcript:

Considered the official start of the Amalfi Coast, the cliff-perched town of Sorrento makes for a quick and easy day trip. We caught the train in Pompei at Villa dei Misteri and took the Circumvesuviana line all the way down the coast. Our plan for the day? To eat and wander around without much of an itinerary.

Since we were visiting just before the holidays, the streets were decked out with all sorts of Christmas decorations. We befriended a few dogs along the way, and then we found a spot to indulge in coffees and pastries.

After walking through the town, we started making our way down to the waterfront, more specifically, to Marina Grande. This harbour is line with pastel-coloured buildings, boats bobbing in the water, and lots of seafood restaurants.

After walking the length of the marina and browsing through menus, we finally settled on a restaurant for lunch: Zi’Ntonio Mare.
Making our way back to town, we also attempted to visit Sorrento Cathedral, but we arrived outside of opening hours so here’s a quick look from the exterior.

From there, we continued down some of Sorrento’s pedestrian-friendly side streets, which were lined with small shops and outdoor produce stalls. Limoncello seemed to be by far the most popular souvenir, so if you’re looking for a taste of the famed lemon liqueur, this is a good place to stock up!

Our last stop of the day were the Cloisters of San Francis, where there was a small art exhibition taking place. These cloisters are also located in small park with great views of the coastline and the Mediterranean Sea, so we enjoyed the views one last time and then it was time to head back.

This is part of our Travel in Italy video series showcasing Italian food, Italian culture and Italian cuisine.

Nice jacket! I really like it! You two convinced me that winter it’s not the perfect time to travel to Italy. I would prefer to travel between September and November because I don’t like cool weather.

Anna Wise says:

I was there in 2000 and at the time did not know lemoncello was from there-I will definitely have to go back. Also, had anchovies in Italy-so much better than anything in the US!

Ilaria A. says:

Nice bench. Cute cozy cat too. Always amazing is the view of Mount Vesuvius. Yes, get some warm clothes Audrey. Brrrrr. Those clothes are nice on you. I would wonder while watching your travels what you do with your stuff. Do you send it back to your home or have a storage? Hmmm.
