This is a busy area and a good central point for touring Sorrento. Lots of good restaurants/bars that offer free wifi with lots of streets off of it for shopping. There is a lovely view off one side towards the bay.

This location is the main center close to everything in Sorrento. The harbor is a few minutes away where to take the Ferries. Good restaurants are within blocks. Nice views of the Coast are steps away. It is only a couple of blocks away of the Rail Station and Shuttle Stop that goes to the Naples Airport. Very convenient also... More

We stopped here for dinner after a busy day sight seeing. We were seated quickly, order taken swiftly and drinks arrived promptly. The food arrived piping hot, plentiful and fresh. Desserts were gorgeous. Would definitely recommend giving this place a try. Its not posh or flash, but good food, good service & I felt quite reasonable. Can't ask for more.... More

Eventhough is the main square in Sorrento,Piazza Tasso is far to be big.It doesn't look very impressive,at least in my oppinion... Some restaurants and cafes,many shops and that's all. From this square you can easily reach Marina Piccola,a very beautiful little harbour.

Piazza Tasso is the center of Sorrento with many great restaurants and shopping just steps away. On the weekends you can see the locals just milling around chatting and basically standing in traffic while they socialize. From the Piazza you can take buses in all directions - Marina Piccola, Marina Grande, and back to the Sorrento Bus station. Sorrento is... More

This is were everyone eventually ends up. Many restaurants with terraces, tons of people walking around. The hearth of Sorrento.

This is the main square in Sorrento with decent cafes on each side and a constant flow of slightly anarchic traffic and pedestrian flows. Handsome buildings both secular and religious give gravitas to the square. The sort of place generally lacking in the UK.

The main square is a great place to have a drink and people watch. The gelato stall sells a great variety of ice creams and they are magnificent!

It`s a wide open place with all the traffic going through it so it does`t have so much atmosphere. But if you want to have an aperitivo the bar Synanuse is good, and they have a really good mussels dish on the menu.

I failed to see the attraction of Piazza Tasso, it is really just an open square on the Corso Italia. Sure you can sit in a cafe beside the square and watch the traffic and pedestrians moving through, but really there are some nice quiet areas to sit away from the noise and pollution. Over-rated!
