The Mermaids's Coast

Few people need an introduction to Sorrento, as it’s an incredibly popular tourist city on the Italian coast – but since most people visit as a day trip from Naples or the Amalfi Coast, or even as a stop on a Mediterranean cruise, there may be more to Sorrento than you know.
Sorrento is often thought of as part of the Amalfi Coast, but it’s technically not. It’s on what’s known as the Sorrentine Peninsula across the Bay of Naples from the city of Naples, and it can be quite a good base from which to visit many top tourist sights in the area – including Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, Naples, Paestum, and the island of Capri.
