The square is the main hub of activity in Sorrento, with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. The main street Corsa Italia runs off it and so do lots of other small, quaint streets full of interesting artisan premises. Various buses and tours emanate from this square including the little white tourist 'train' which is a lot of fun and... More

Stayed in Sorrento just off the main Piazza Tasso. It is the place to be day and night if you like to people watch. There are some shops and few nice restaurants café bars to sit and chill. The traffic is a little hectic so be careful

We loved this buzzy (and busy) square right in the heart of beautiful Sorrento. Sit at one of the pavement cafes - we loved Fauno Bar - and watch the world go by, on foot, in cars, buses and taxis, on the little tourist train, or in a horse and carriage. So much to see - it's so easy to... More

Sorrento town is a bustling place full of shops, churches, restaurants, music and festivals. Piazza Tasso is its beating heart. It is a very safe place to be out and the Italians are a polite, good looking and well dressed nation and the shopkeepers were highly entertaining. The shops must close sometime but if you go to bed before midnight... More

Piazza Tasso is a fabulous spot to base your visit to Sorrento. It really is in the heart of everything. Surrounded by cafés and shops it's only a short walk to the station and the sea. It's a great place to people watch, hop on the tourist train or a horse and carriage and catch the sights of Sorrento It's... More

It's is a central landmark for navigating at Sorrento. Full of action at day and night, this piazza is an excellent beginning for exploring the town. Huge number of restaurans, bars, shops and points of interest take their roots from this piazza. A great place to see the "passagiata", and to be seen. Beautiful, full of flowers and colorful piazza.... More

In the heart of Sorrento, this amazing square boasts numerous cafes, and leads off to, not only the famous 'Drains' (shopping bargains) but also to the more prestigious designer shops on the main Corso; something for everyone. As frequent visitors, one of our favourite pastimes is having coffee (alfresco) in the Ercolano bar, where we can wonder at the skill... More

In common with all other tourist attractions this spot is overrun by visitors! What really spoils it as far as I am concerned is the heavy, continuous traffic. Why tourists chose to sit at a cafe for a coffee etc defeats me. It is the hub of the town where streets lead off to the marina and to the narrow... More
