Sorrento is situated on a terrace 50 metres high, sloping steeply into the sea. This town is calm and tranquil, with only a handful of beautiful beaches. Main drawcard of Sorrento is its nature: landscapes, sea, lush greenery and salubrious air. It is ideal destination if you want to alternate the beach and water sports with enlightening tours and excursions. As for souvenirs and presents, Limoncello di Sorrento, a strong fragrant liqueur made of locally grown lemons, is probably the best option.
Capri is an undeniable tourist Mecca, with thousands of visitors from all over the world coming here every year, in spite of the fact that you won’t find sandy beaches here, only pebbles and large slabs of rock.
Indented coastline, stupendous grottoes and caves (think White Grotto, Blue Grotto and Green Grotto, and the list is not exhaustive), the unbelievable Natural Arch (Arco Naturale), ancient ruins (Villa Jovis) never fail to impress visitors.
Water here is of unrivalled transparency, you can clearly see the bottom even where the sea is 10 metres deep. One of the Capri drawcards is I Faraglioni, imposing rocks rising vertically out of sapphire sea.
