Sorrento celebrates Capodanno

A busy restaurant in Sorrento
New Year’s Day is called Capodanno in Italy, which literally means ‘head of the year’.
After a late start following the New Year’s Eve festivities, many families will enjoy another traditional feast together, either at home or in a restaurant.
Both visitors to Sorrento and local residents will have attended church services before sitting down to the festive meal and toasting the new year with a glass of good prosecco.
Buon Anno e Tanti Auguri per 2012 da Best of Sorrento!

Language note

Tanti auguri is the Italian phrase that is equivalent to 'best wishes' in English.
