Sorrento is a small town, beautiful, surrounded by the blue sea and practically bathed in sunshine throughout the year. Although they are so many things to do and see in Sorrento, most tourists spend here only a few days, also a due of the many cruise ships which dock every day in this small town. This is the why I decided to write this short guide which will help you discover and enjoy a nice day in Sorrento and maybe visit some monuments.
As you can read in this post, things to do in Sorrento, one of the main reasons why people decide to visit the jewel of the Sorrento Coast is undoubtedly the sea. Here you will find numerous free beaches and some really very equipped beaches, although a little more expensive than average.
