The wonderful tradition of taking an evening walk / promenade is a wonderful Continent tradition which got lost, unfortunately, in America. The tradition is alive and well on the Corso Italia and it's enjoyable to watch & take part in. Start at Piazza Tasso and wander along. Plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants along the way. ...

This is a lively street in Sorrento, the main street ending (or beginning) at Piazza Tasso. The street is lined with hotels, apartments, shops and restaurants giving you a glimpse of real life in the town. They close the street to vehicle traffic at certain times of the day to make it more pedestrian friendly. Nice for a stroll but... More

One can not miss out in mingling with locals in the evenings. It is the venue for both locals and foreigners. Closed to traffic in late evenings. Plenty of restaurants, pubs, shops, souvenir shops all of which stay open till late. Piazza Tasso is the end of the Corso from Via Capo. The Corso has kept alive an Italian tradition... More

The corso is the main drag but you will be better off investigating the small laneways that radiate off of it for the best shops with the best bargains.

We booked the apartments as there were four of us travelling and hotel accommodation is really expensive in Sorrento. It is 10min walking distance to the center of town. The apartment is quite out dated and needs to be modernised but does have all you need. The shower is super small and with four of us we needed to watch... More

Had a very nice time in Sorrento! From there visited attractions like island of Capri. Went to Ana Capri which is prettier and rode chair lift to top of Monte Solaro. Fantastic views from there. Did not have time for Blue Grotto. From Sorrento easy access by train to Mt Vesuvius / Pompeii. Also from Sorrento took bus to Positano... More

This road has all the tourist traps along with the high-end shops. Something for everyone. My wife and I really got to hate walking this street after the first two days, so we always took a leftie just after the first square on the Amalfi side and walked the back streets. Once you've bought your knick-knacks you're better off heading... More
