Corso Italia is a busy, noisy 'main street' full of tourists and crazy traffic. For me, the real treat was to browse the adjacent narrow side streets full of beautiful shops, restaurants, cafes. One of the streets will bring you all the way down to Marina Piccola where you can take a boat trip to Naples, Capri or Isle of... More

Crazy drivers, lots of noise. The drivers are on this road day and night. Many scooters, taxis and buses.

This is the main road through Sorrento and as such can be very busy during the day. In the evening the traffic is stopped and you can enjoy a very pleasant walk. Split in to two from the main square do not forget to take the exit which leads to the Cathedral, missed by some who just focus on the... More

After dark the street becomes an all-pedestrian, no motor vehicle, well-lighted promenade. The well-dressed, the families with little ones in strollers, the teenyboppers, the lovers, the tourists, and the people-watchers like us browse the shops, eat at the restaurants, stop for a gelato, and just enjoy the ambience.

Corso Italia is the main drag in Sorrento, lively and a great people watching street. When we were there in October, they closed a part of it off to car traffic on weekends,, so it was full of tourists and local teenagers strolling and hanging out. Shops and eateries abound, and there was street entertainment as well on the weekends.

When you visit cities in Italy you have some common themes. There is a square where you can people watch, shops to visit and historical places to see. Sorrento is a comfortable tourist town. The people are very nice and cater to tourists. There are lots of cheap shops to buy things to take home. There isn't much in the... More

We came first week of November and we got the tail end of their season and most places closed by the end of our holiday. Good street with a bunch of shops and ended up buying Italian made leather shoes so can't go wrong.

A rather busy road, like you would find in most countries that use roads. It is very difficult to review a road but here goes. The traffic flows in two directions, in and then out of Sorrtento Some interesting shops on the way and it can be a very quick way to get back to Sant Agnello How ever do... More

This main street has such a variety of shops and restaurants. You can walk along any time and find something different. We enjoyed exploring.

This is not a very nice road to be on or shop on...the car exhaust fumes are very prevalent and cause much discomfort. If you can stay away, do so.
