“Qui dove il mare luccica e tira forte il vento, su una vecchia terrazza davanti al Golfo di Surriento…” (from Caruso – song by Lucio Dalla, 1986)
Surrounded by green hills, fresh flowers and the stunning sea: Sorrento is the pearl of the Sorrento Coast.
Situated in a picturesque setting overlooking the Gulf of Naples, Sorrento fascinates tourists and visitors with breathtaking views. Praised by poets, celebrated in songs and immortalized in paintings, this town has everything that nature can give.
Writers and artists such as Goethe, Dickens, Nietzsche and D’Annunzio have chosen Sorrento as their holiday destination. It is the land of colours, sirens, gardens: there are many definitions attributed to Sorrento, home of the great Torquato Tasso.
With its irregular and rugged coastline, colourful houses, the scent of lemons, the clear sea, the sun, art, and culture, Sorrento has been influenced by different cultures over the centuries: Greeks, Romans, Normans, Aragoneses.
In this picturesque and magical setting, this tour dedicated to the sense of taste shows us not only the natural beauty, architecture and art of this fascinating town, but also the culinary tradition and flavours of Sorrento.
After a guided city tour, you will visit the “factory” of limoncello, a family-run business and workshop located on a picturesque street in the historic center. It was born from the desire to keep alive the local traditions by producing typical Sorrento products using craft methods and traditional recipes that have been passed on from generation to generation.
Learn the process of creating this typical liqueur and taste the typical products made in the laboratory, such as chocolate, candies, babà and jams as well as different types of limoncello and oil.
Don’t miss Sorrento!
