Cruise to the beautiful gateway of Capri
With its many pedestrian-only streets, Sorrento is a lovely city to explore on foot, but there’s no way around it: If you really want to see Sorrento, you’re going to have travel vertically. Most of the town is set up on the cliffs, so to get to the top, you can hop on a mini-bus, take the lift, or go on a short but steep hike.
Love to eat? You’ll find the dining experience here second-to-none, where lemon is the star. It’s in everything: risotto, olive oil, gelato, and, of course, limoncello. (There’s no chance you’ll be getting scurvy on this trip!) But if your mouth gets tired of puckering up, enjoy a dinner of Gnocchi alla Sorrentina—pillowy potato dumplings baked in a cheesy tomato sauce. Italian comfort food at its finest.
Looking out from Sorrento, in the Gulf of Naples, is the isle of Capri. Well known for its sparkling Blue Grotto, it’s the playground of the rich and famous, and easily reached via a short hydrofoil.
The island is divided into two main parts, Capri and Anacapri. Capri is full of Italian luxury, with designer stores and five-star hotels lining the streets, while Anacapri is slightly more down-to-earth. Take a relaxing chair lift ride to the very top of the island, as the views are jaw-droppingly gorgeous.Download An Explorer Guide +
