Sorrento is a small city in Campania Italy, with some 16,500 inhabitants. The town can be reached easily from Naples and Pompeii, as it lies at the south-eastern end of the Circumvesuviana rail line. The town overlooks the bay of Naples, and many viewpoints in the city allow sight of Naples itself (visible across the bay), Vesuvius and the island of Capri. We ate a pizza at a popular café overlooking the Piazza Tasso.
This picture is a view from that beautiful Piazza.
The Roman name for Sorrento was Surrentum. In 1861 it was officially annexed to the new Kingdom of Italy. In the following years it confirmed and increased its status of one of the most renowned tourist destinations of Italy, a trend which continued into the 20th Century.
