Restaurants Sorrento Italy Amalfi Coast – The charm of Sorrento and the Sorrento Coast is truly unique; a strip of land south of the Gulf of Naples, stretching between land and sea, a small natural paradise with its overhanging cliffs, small bays, and sloping terraces where orange, olive trees, vines but above all lemons are grown. In spring, the intoxicating scent of lemons immediately strikes the visitor.

Sorrento stands on a tuff plain overlooking the sea and offers one of the most intense views of the region between lush vegetation and the cobalt blue sea.

Man has always felt the charm of Sorrento: the ancients thought that this sea was the home of the Sirens and legend has it that the ancient Surrentum was born on a place dedicated to the worship of these creatures. In the eighteenth century, Sorrento became one of the favorite destinations of the Grand Tour.

Villa Comunale Sorrento

The first thing we can do once we arrive in Sorrento is to go to the Villa Comunale to enjoy a beautiful view of the Amalfi Coast, Vesuvius, and the baths of Sorrento. The Villa Comunale is definitely one of our favorite places in Sorrento.

The Villa Comunale is a public garden with a beautiful balcony on the sea. It is located near the center, and for this reason, it is a meeting point where you can have an aperitif or enjoy this unique view.

7 pm in August in Sorrento. Beautiful view from the garden and terrace of the Villa Comunale. Watch the following video!

The Villa Comunale of Sorrento is the best place where you can enjoy the sunset and see Sorrento’s beach from above.

The baths of Queen Giovanna

The baths of Queen Giovanna is a very special place where you can enjoy the sea. They are easily accessible by bus. I do not recommend you to get there on foot because although they are not very far from Sorrento, it is a long walk to do on foot and the road in some places does not have a pedestrian area.

If you go in August you should arrive very early because it is not very big and it gets easily crowded.

Marina Grande Sorrento

The Mills Vallum

The Mills Vallum is visible from top to bottom from a bridge placed right above this area. Vallone di Mulini is close to the center and therefore easily accessible.

The beautiful Sunset

Watching the sunset maybe during a good dinner is really impressive in Sorrento. A good idea is to go to one of the restaurants on the Marina Grande to observe it. Watch the following video to admire the sunset over the sea.

Another good idea is to have dinner in one of Sorrento’s magnificent restaurants with a panoramic terrace.

One of these restaurants is the Vittoria Terrace restaurant that is on the top of the Continental hotel.

There is nothing better than going up to the terrace before the sun goes down for an aperitif and watching the change on the horizon. Moreover, in front of us, we have the Vesuvius that characterizes the Sorrento view.

In fact, the volcano Vesuvius is clearly visible from Sorrento but not from other Amalfi Coast towns such as Positano and Amalfi.

Marina Piccola Sorrento

If you are in Sorrento I think you’d like to visit other Amalfi Coast towns. From Sorrento, you can easily get to Capri and Positano by boat.

You can take a boat to Capri or Positano in Marina Piccola which is on the opposite side of Marina Grande.

From Marina Piccola you can see more than the boats and the seagulls: you can also see the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria. This hotel is part of the Sorrento skyline and you can easily notice it because it’s built on rock and it’s quite colorful. It certainly doesn’t go unnoticed.

Watch the following video so you’ll understand better what I mean.

You are now ready for a new adventure. Let’s go to Positano by boat. While sailing we have the pleasure of enjoying the most hidden beauties of the Amalfi Coast.

During our trip, we pass in front of the western Amalfi Coast point: Punta Campanella. Punta Campanella is right in front of Capri island and while we pass here we have Punta Campanella on one side and Capri Island on the other side.

For the moment, however, let’s see these beautiful cliffs of the Amalfi Coast. Watch the following video!

Punta Campanella

If you take the boat and head towards the Amalfi Coast you have the pleasure of enjoying the beauties of the Sorrento coast.

In particular, you pass in front of the most extreme point of the coast, the westernmost point: Punta Campanella. Punta Campanella is located right in front of the island of Capri and as you pass in front of it you have Punta Campanella on one side and the island of Capri on the other. Watching the following video we focus for now on this beautiful rocky point of the Sorrento Coast. Watch the video!

You can also admire Punta Campanella from Monte Solaro in Capri. On clear days the spectacle is incredible!

Marina Grande Sorento: dinner and sunset

After enjoying the beautiful view at the Villa Comunale and having the aperitif it’s now the time of having dinner. For our first dinner, we chose a very cute area of Sorento: Marina Grande.

Marina Grande Sorento is a very distinct and popular area of Sorrento, especially in summer. Here we find not only the beach but also excellent restaurants by the sea. Dining in one of these restaurants is a great idea, especially for watching the sunset.

We chose the Il Delfino restaurant for our dinner in Sorrento to have good food and an amazing view of the sunset on the sea. We have dinner and admire the sunset over the sea: very romantic! You can see the sunset from a table of this restaurant in the following short video.
