Spent a lovely afternoon meandering down this street. Full of small shops and places to stop for a drink, food, ice cream or snack....and if course churches! Pedestrianised area so is easy to wander.

Looks short to walk and when you start you realise how long it is ! Beautiful, essence of Italian in every way. Lots of shops and little alleyways that will take you to different parks, view points, beaches and ports.

This is the main shopping street in the town, with plenty of restaurants and cafes too, most with tables outside. A great place to watch the world go by.

If you are in Sorrento than you are most likely hitting this Main Street. Now, unlike previous years, sections of this street are closed as a pedestrian walkway which great! It was so nice to let me daughter enjoy running up and down this section...More

Spent a night visiting a number of bars and window shopping. Some great looking restaurants and designer shops all set in a pedestrian walkway which used to be just a continuation of the Corso Italia.

Have you ever been to restaurants where the pasta or other Italian food is badly cooked. Surely! This restaurant is perfect! The pasta, the bread, the salad, basically everything. I used to go there every weekend. Must go to this restaurant

Nice to see the Main Street from piazza Tasso down to the hospital pedestrianised. Be aware that there are many more shops running parallel with this street in what is called the drains. Shops on the high street tend to be more designer, and pricey....More
