Sorrento In the Sun

Updated: Aug 6, 2023


What to do on your day off??? A question I ask myself regularly. If you're on the Amalfi coast line then SORRENTO is a must visit.

We took the train from Castellamare de stabia-marina stabia a popular drop off and pick up for yachts, right in the center of the bay of Napoli. The perfect location for starting cruising close to Capri, Amalfi, Positano; the yachting hotspots for the everybodies and the somebodies.The train cost 2:50 euros one way and was about 30 minutes. (Very crowded but doing doable-highly recommend the earlier train).

We started the day with a delicious breakfast at the beautiful which is a fantastic spot with a great menu and fabulous service. The Torta Caprese al limone is simply perfection and of course the best way to start the day is with Cake!!

Sorrento is a busy tourist location, but as you venture into town it's not so bad. There are so many BEUATIFUL BOUTIQUES so ladies if its the end of a long trip treat yourself.

So of course I did.

As my dear readers know I'm tempted to a nice pair of shoes and sorrento did not disappoint.

I haven't been able to walk past any shop window without giving every pair of shoes the look of love.

yes of course I bought a pair!!

Only ONE. So that's ok, from the stunning Cagisa Shop in the center of Sorrento town.

Wondering the streets of Sorrento is lined with fresh produce, lemons of course and home-made limoncello. The lovely people at Sapori & Colori Sorrento who make local limoncello with locally grown lemons, bottled in Amalfi ceramic pottery. They produce a perfectly balanced limoncello not to sweet or to bitter.

I've fallen in love with the Amalfi coast all over again. The sounds, tastes and beauty of this region are like non other, the south of Italy really is completely different to the rest of this beautiful country and a paradise of sorts.

The amalfi coast has everything to offer a travelling sailor, the sea, great seafood, culture and so much more.

I recommend coming to sorrento for longer that just a day as I feel that I've only had a small taste of what this stunning location has to offer. To see its full potentially I would recommend 4-5 days to explore everything it has to offer.

There are so many more yachting based posts coming in the next few days but I got so excited about sharing my time in Sorrento I wanted to get this out to you all. Please let me know if you enjoy the travel content as well as yachting.

As always keep smiling, laughing and loving the sea 🤍🌊
