Sorrento

Land of the Sirens

A lovely town easily accessible from almost anywhere in the country, Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and sits right on the Amalfi Drive.
Venture out of the city with trips to Il Sentiero Degli Dei (in Positano), Ravello (Duomo di Ravello & Belvedere Principessa di Piemonte) and Amalfi (Museo della Carta & Duomo di Sant'Andrea). Dedicate the 7th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: get the lay of the land with Walk Positano by Gabriella, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, take a leisurely stroll along Marina Grande - Antico Borgo Marinaro, and get a taste of the local shopping with Miniaci Art Gallery.

For photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Sorrento road trip website.

Dublin, Ireland to Sorrento is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and train; or do a combination of ferry and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Dublin to Sorrento. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Dublin in May: high temperatures in Sorrento hover around 27°C and lows are around 18°C. You will have some time to spend on the 8th (Sun) before leaving for Naples.
