Sorrento is a beautiful town perched on a cliff high above the sea with views of Vesuvius and the islands in the Bay of Naples . Use this website to help you plan a visit to this elegant southern Italian resort and find your way to the best beaches and some lovely villages and towns along the Sorrentine peninsula that are perhaps less well known to tourists.


Take a trip from Marina Piccola

The harbour at Marina Piccola

From Sorrento’s main port at Marina Piccola you can take a boat or aliscafo 
(hydrofoil) to the islands of Ischia, Capri and Procida. 
There is also a direct aliscafo to Naples and the Metro del Mare service from Sorrento to Positano, Amalfi and Salerno, which sails round Punta Campanella, the tip of the Sorrentine peninsula, and past a picturesque group of islands called Li Galli.
You can either take a local bus or taxi to the port or walk down from either Piazza Tasso or Piazza Sant’Antonino using the steps and the winding road.
Down at Marina Piccola there are restaurants, bars and shops and a central area where you can buy tickets for the different ferry services and check their timetables.
You will see small boats bringing passengers ashore from the cruise ships visiting Sorrento that are moored further out in the bay.
And you will notice that one area of the port is reserved to accommodate privately owned boats and fishing boats, which are still used to catch fish by traditional methods and provide an important source of employment in the area.
