Sorrento is an attractive upscale town. Both it and Capri are two easy DIY day trips via hydrofoil from Naples, especially if you are on a cruise ship. If you have the time and energy you could even combine the two. The hydrofoil dock is right next to the cruise terminal. Departure times and berths are posted. Just go to... More

This is a great viewing spot, so be sure to walk here even if you're not going anywhere from this point. Take stairs from Piazza Tasso (great photo location) and walk down the road, straight to the Marina. I didn't eat here, but there's few fish restaurants are located here, and I guess, you can't miss. If you move to... More

Several restaurants are local fishing families. They offer delicious food at very good prices. It's a great place to people watch as well. Sunset is lovely as well. My favorite place in sorrento

We came from Capri by boat. This is an amazing place to see. You can enjoy the view of the sea, the boats but also of sorrento with hotels built on top of the rock. Definitely must see when being in Sorrento!

I visited Marina Grande with my wife and daughter on a lovely Monday afternoon to find a charming little village away from the hustle and bustle that you find in the town of Sorrento. It was only a 15 minute walk from the square, but a world away from the commercialism of the main town. It was easy to picture... More

So fascinating to see all the locals fishing, sun bathing, doing what they do every day. Beautiful views too!

We have just visited the town of Sorrento for the second year running and the Marina is defiantly a must do. Place is lovely for a swim and sunbathe during the day, if you don't have beach towels there's a little shop you can purchase all things like that from here. Stay during the evening for wine and fish!! :)... More

Its a beautiful walk from the Sorrento down to the Marina Grande I recommend that you go in the evening time enjoy a glass of wind, watch the sun set or enjoy a delicious meal in the great fish restaurants nearby. Some of the bar have live music and at festival time lots of music by the harbour and colourful... More

Not what the title says it is. Small fishing village untouched by commercialism. Plenty of small restaurants & cafe's. Try the 5 Sister cafe.
