Corsa Italia is the main street in Sorrento with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants and the cathedral. Shops are mostly high end 'fashion' but there are a number of little gems, including Primavera selling fabulous icecream. The are lots of smaller side streets emanating off the main road littered with artisan shops and small cafes and restaurants.

We stayed in hotel caravel which is a 20 minute walk away from the main square. We would stop and view the beautiful view of the sea every time we went past, I loved it. This square then branches off into little streets of shops, restaurants and gelatories. It can be quite busy at times but nothing too bad. Its... More

A great way to check out Sorrento. Such an adorable little town filled with beautiful views. Great little cafes and don't forget to check out the Sorrento Lemons. Limoncello anyone?

Traffic in Sorrento is a bit insane at times. If you are renting a car and driving to Amalfi coast, I would recommend avoiding this area as much as possible. Our worst drive through the town took almost 20 min to drive less than a few kilometers. It was bumper to bumper the whole way through. Backed up all the... More

The main street through Sorrento. Lots of shops, but also lots of traffic. It is well maintained and clean though. Wonderful when they don't allow cars through though.

The path walk more popular in the city of Sorrento, a place this very unique I personally went there late at evening, maybe it is more atmospheric when the lights come out and stores and restaurants along the way are populated by tourists. Really beautiful scenery.

Corso Italia is the main street of Sorrento. It must have been pretty controversial when they modernized this street - since it runs right through the middle of old Sorrento. They did a nice job - with leaving the older buildings - but just modernizing the streets, sidewalks and some storefronts. We were here in the winter - and the... More

The busy main shopping street of Sorrento. lots of different shops, varying from very expensive to more touristy. Little streets leading off the Corso were more interesting. Again beautifully decorated for Christmas.

This is the street where we stayed, at the end near the hospital, and which we enjoyed the most. Plenty of great shopping and places for snacks or lunch and dinner. Some nights the street is closed to vehicles and fills with locals and tourists of all ages. It is a fun place to be at those times, but busy... More

I am reviewing the shopping areas. The Main Street is very nice with many shops but the side streets and alley ways are the main attraction. The Christmas lights added a festive environment. It was a pleasure walking in the area. No One was dragging you into stores or making you feel uncomfortable. No panhandlers or beggars. The area was... More
