Soak up the Mediterranean charm of Sorrento on board an open-air, hop-on hop-off bus tour. See the best of this pastel-dipped cliffside city, from the centuries-old cathedrals and monasteries to the endless lemon groves and unrivaled views of the azure Gulf of Naples.
Hop on at the palm-lined Piazza Lauro and wind down coastal roads to the colorful hamlet of Massa Lubrense. Known for its dramatic sweeping panoramas of the steel-blue Gulf, step off and soak up the vistas with the verdant Isle of Capri and the ancient Mount Vesuvius volcano in the distance.
As you cruise along narrow, cobbled streets and past expanses of olive groves and lemon fields, listen to the fascinating historical and cultural audio commentary of the region. Hop off and take a look inside the 11th-century Sorrento Cathedral—its walls covered in magnificent frescoes. Then walk towards to the scenic Marina Grande to see Italian fisherman hauling in the day's catch.
For a souvenir hunting detour, disembark at Via San Cesareo. On this main shopping street, you can find handcrafted goods, locally-made wares, and plenty of limoncello—a favorite elixir among the citizens of Sorrento.
