The True Colours of Naples
Perched 55 metres atop rocky cliffs, Sorrento is a truly unique destination, unlike anywhere else you’ve seen before. High and low, it’s a dazzling sight, with colourful fishing boats greeting you on the water and sky-high terraces enticing you to have some fun.
Looking over the Bay of Naples, a yacht charter to Sorrento is a must, whether you’re covering the entire Amalfi Coast or looking for a long weekend in just one place. Romantic, culinary and cultural, Sorrento satisfies all who visit its shores.
Must-do Activities While Yacht Chartering In Sorrento
This dreamy Italian coastal town is the culinary and cultural stop for any Amalfi Coast exploration. No matter where you go, the highlight (second, maybe, to the food) is the view. Set within the cliffs, looking out to the Bay of Naples, the views from Sorrento are magic. Wherever you go, expect a seat adjacent to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Indulge In The Culinary Delights
When booking your private yacht charter of Sorrento, make sure to book in advance at one of the town’s most divine restaurants.
Our absolute favourites are:
La Marinella: next to the sea, La Marinella serves up fresh seafood and Mediterranean fare.
Don Pedro: with one of the most sought after views in Sorrento, Don Pedro is a popular restaurant and a popular place for lovers to wed.
Terrazza Bosquet: perched so high up it can feel like you’re dining in the clouds, Terrazza Bosquet is a to-die-for Michelin star restaurant not to be missed.
Ristorante Lorelei: vegetarians wanting the Michelin star experience without offending the chef are recommended to visit Ristorante Lorelei, where they serve a vegetarian tasting menu and (you guessed it) the views are spectacular.
Enjoy The Water
Taking advantage of your Sorrento yacht charter, there are plenty of beautiful beachside locations to explore.
Visit the Baths of Queen Giovanna (Bagni della Regina Giovanna), the most picturesque beach in Sorrento. This is one of the region’s most remote beaches, set within rocky cliffs and a natural stone arch that hides it from unknowing eyes.
Also hidden in plain sight is the Vervece Island dive site, where divers and snorkelers are blown away by a giant submerged statue of the Madonna. If you visit in September, you may see an annual Mass at this site. Hundreds of boats visit it, and the ceremony involves divers placing wreaths of flowers on the statue to honour the memory of those who have been lost at sea.
Wander The Mainland
Sorrento is the perfect place to wander aimlessly, with views never ceasing to impress no matter where you are.
If we have to recommend just a few highlights, however, they would be:
Museo Muta and Museo Correale: Cultural explorers will enjoy the Museo Correale’s collection of Neapolitan artworks dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, including ceramics, glassware, crystals and even watches.
At Museo Muta, you can learn about marquetry, the art of applying decorative veneer to objects. This art form has a long history in Sorrento, and the Museo Muta houses both antique and modern examples of this medium.
Cloister of San Francesco: An oasis hidden within the town’s central piazza, the Cloister of San Francesco was both a seventh-century monastery and a late-medieval church. The two sites have now combined as the Cloister of San Francesco. In the cloister, you can see architectural influences of the pre-Roman, Arabic and medieval eras.
When you’re peckish, venture toward Piazzo Tasso, where restaurants and cafes are lined all along. Shopaholics can alternatively visit Corso Italia or Via San Cesareo to find something exquisite in the boutiques.
