SORRENTO

Sorrento is one of the most important destinations of international tourism .

Many civilizations have passed through here : the Etruscans, the Greeks, the Romans, the Normans, the Aragonese. During the nineteenth century the tourist vocation of this place became a reality, and Sorrento was included in the “Grand Tour” , a journey through the most significant places in Italy that every noble European young man had to make to complete his cultural and historical education. Many famous distinguished guests came to Sorrento at that time in search of sun and inspiration. To name a few: Byron, Keats, Dickens, Goethe, Wagner, Ibsen and Nietzsche.

Sorrento is home to major cultural events, music, films, and an ideal starting point for all tourist amenities such as Capri, Ischia, Naples, Herculaneum, Pompeii , Positano, Amalfi.

For incentive and special events Sorrento offers several solutions: stately homes with views, farmhouses, medieval cloisters, and some among the most evocative sites and views of the gulf.

Teambuilding and themed tours proposals include nature walks, Vespa tours, vintage cars rallyes, trips out to sea on the “gozzi” – the typical Sorrentine historic boats .
