We ate at the outdoor café, at tables so close you automatically spoke to neighbours and so met other people. Very friendly staff, who welcomed us back twice with literally open arms. Pasta excellent, pizzas too large for me to cope with. So nice to be welcomed to a really friendly place with music every night - everyone joined in... More

We also stumbled upon this place. Best meal we had in Sorrento. We liked our lunch so much we came back for dinner. Spaghetti is excellent. Pizza very good. Salads are very fresh. On both visits we met interesting people from Australia and England. Go here!

My husband and I just stumbled upon this area on our tour down Corso Italia, down to Piazzo Tasso and along Tasso Square. The colorful frescoes over the entrance way are gorgeous. I had read that some of the people of Sorrento would be sitting at the tables playings hands of cards, but no one was here that day...sorry to... More

For three hundred years, the noble families of Sorrento, and their descendents, have set up a presepe in the town seat, a building that dates back to the 1400's, the beginning of the town. The people are about 12 inches tall and although there is a manger scene , it is actually dwarved by the mountain and village scenes contained... More

Situated in the small back streets known as the "Drains", the entrance dome has a nice fresco but today when we called the gate was locked so could not get in, on other visits we have seen Sorrento pensioners sat about chatting or playing draughs or chess in the foyer, will go back later in our holiday to try and...

Easy to walk right by, but do take a minute and read the multi language legend that describes what used to be the meeting place of the aristocrats to discuss politics and religion and is now a workers meeting place. Right in the heart of the twisting winding cobblestone streets filled with the tourist shops!

We discovered this place whilst walking down the laneway to our accommodation. We were very impressed with the entrance foyer with its colourful frescoes. It was being used that day by choral singers so we could not get a good look inside. Good photo opportunity.

It's a unique place, you have to see it, we had the opportunity to admire the Nativity (it was packed) during XMas week... just a dream

Another of the sights worth taking in as you wander round Sorrento. The perspective work took me in at first glance before I realised I couldn't be looking at what I thought I was. The other thing that tickled me was that it used to be a meeting place for the nobles to discuss city affairs, now it's a workers... More

This is where the men of the area use to sit down and discuss politics and religion back in Sorrento's heyday- 400 years ago. The building is 16th-century, but it appears to be still used by the old men of the area to just sit and talk. The Sedile is not out-of-the-way, so you'll pass by it on your way... More
