The main drag through Sorrento - lots of traffic, but pedestrianized in the evenings - at least most people walk in the road. You still get some traffic, but slow moving so that's ok. Great ice creams half way down between Piazza Tasso and Piazza Achile Lauro - lots of shops some quite reasonably priced too. We walked down it... More

Hmm, an Italian Main Street. Yes busy, noisy, to much traffic for my liking and nothing really special to write home about. I preferred to go off the Main Street down the little back alleys which although full of tourist tat shops are much more pleasant and entertaining.

Nice street for window shopping or ice cream buying and to be seen. One of the main hubs in downtown Sorrento.

The Corso Italia is the main road between Sorrento and Naples. Within Sorrento it is the main street with numerous shops. But the shopping is far more interesting in the numerous streets and ally's leading off it. If you are staying in St Agnello which is a suburb of Sorrento, though direct, don't use it to walk into Sorrento. It... More

There's not a lot to see on Corso Italia so not sure why this is an attraction. If you want great shops, head to the streets parallel to Corso Italia instead, being Via Fuoro and Via Cesareo and theside streets here.

Corso Italia has a supermarket and lots of clothes shops. It is full of tourists although the further you go along, the less people there are away from piazza tasso.!

The main street full of designer clothes and shoe shops enough to keep anyone busy for the whole holiday!!! Also, many bars and restaurants when you a break.

But, hey! It's in Sorrento ... So it is ultra touristy and over crowded (of course... Summer in Sorrento)... But amidst the traffic (of every sort, from pedestrian to the busses and vespas), there is a certain charm and a hint of what the town is like when the crowds leave. This is not the limoncello on every corner part... More

Busy road with plenty of Italians driving Vespas, chatting to each other and presumably saying "ciao" a lot. Easy to cross at many crossings which could do with a coat of paint for clarity. Lovely shops and plenty of bars, cafés and of course ice cream sellers. The shops are adequate but you won't find high end shops here, if... More
