Sorrento day trips and excursions

Sorrento - the best starting point for day trips in the region

Sorrento has many sights and some nice beaches, but the city is also the starting point for excursions in the extremely interesting region. Thanks to the location of the peninsula, between Naples with the Mount Vesuvius and the world-famous archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum in the north and the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento to Salerno in the south, as well as the Greek temples in Paestum south of Salerno, Sorrento is probably the best base to visit this culturally and scenically unique region, with many World Heritage Sites.

Capri   The paradise island offshore Sorrento, which fascinated already Jean-Paul Satre, Maria Callas or Brigitte Bardot, is a wonderful destination for a day trip.
Ischia   Spas, wonderful beaches and south Italian charme awaits you on this island of volcanic origin covered with green, Mediterranean flora.
Mount Vesuvius   Climb up the impressive volcano Mount Vesuvius, watching over the Gulf of Naples and which poses despite its frightening appearance no immediate danger. 
Pompeii   The sunken city of Pompeii is probably the most impressive and largest excavation of ancient Roman traces
Herculaneum   Below the bustling modern city of Ercolano are the excavations of the ancient Herculaneum, the wealthy ancient Roman city which was buried by the lava of Mount Vesuvius.
Amalfi Coast   The most beautiful coast of Italy - the towns of the Amalfi Coast built in rock and cliffs shine magically in bright colors and are the allegory of the Dolce Vita
