For tourist information about Sorrento or Sant’Agnello, visit the entertainingly named Foreigners’ Club in Via Luigi De Maio.
Sorrento's tourist office
Within this building, which has its own restaurant and gardens, the official Azienda Soggiorno e Turismo for Sorrento is based.
You can pick up free maps and leaflets with information about things to see and day trips, or ask the staff on duty for help and advice.
Make a point of asking for a copy of Surrentum, the monthly magazine for visitors, which is packed with useful information.
As well as interesting features, some of which have English translations alongside, there is information about concerts, exhibitions and events taking place in the area.
At the back of the magazine you will find timetables for the hydrofoils and ferries, all the local bus services and the Circumvesuviana railway.
Italian tourist information offices usually have information only about their own specific areas. You will also find tourist information offices at Meta, Massa Lubrense and Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi if you would like details about other places to visit along the Sorrento peninsula.
Entrance to the tourist office
The Foreigners’ Club restaurant, Circolo dei Forestieri, serves drinks, snacks, lunch and dinner and puts on entertainment and dancing in the evenings.
You can eat outside on a terrace overlooking the bay of Naples with a view of Vesuvius across the sea.
