Sorrento is a nice place. I liked it even though it is extremely touristy. This is just the main street and does exactly what is says on the tin. Interesting place with bits and pieces going on. Lots of little shops, lovely ice cream. Nice to walk along and see what's happening.

Corso Italia is wonderful, great shops and restaurant. From 1pm to 12 am they have La passegiata, where no cars in the street and you can walk freely. Love the place

This great street goes through the heart of Sorrento and is full of boutiques, shops and cafes. It is always lively and buzzing from early in the morning to late at night. What's not to like?

It's the place to visit in Sorrento. Loads of eating and drinking places and a great atmosphere. Lots of tourist shops for souvenirs, I loved all the back streets and the harbours are within easy walking distance.

So many scooters and mini trucks pumping out fumes. Avoid it when you can. The only good thing about it is access to laundry facilities and a few good restaurants

This is a road of two halves: The walk from Sant'Agnello to Sorrento along this road is hideous. The road is busy and narrow (as are the pavements - there are no pavements in places) and the fumes would choke you half to death. Don't walk this way, take the longer coast road (about 30 mins). Down the other end... More

A busy, bustling shopping area with great places to eat. Great atmosphere at night. The Favorita restaurant is not to be missed, it looks tiny but has 1000 seats under lemon and orange trees. Apparently this is where cannelloni was first made!

Loved it, everyone just piles onto the street at night, people breakdancing, playing music, making balloon animals, and everyone has an icecream in their hand... Brilliant...

Crammed with numerous shops, bars and restaurants and all open late into the evening. Wonderful place for a leisurely stroll
