Main site of Sorrento Peninsula, Sorrento Aristocratic town is one of many tourist destinations of this area, already at the time of his birth, thanks to its natural beauty, art and traditions.

The name, Sorrento, seems to be linked to myth of the Sirens, mythological figures who tried to charm the sailors with their singing and forcing them to shipwreck on the coast of the Sorrento peninsula. As narrated by Homer in the Odyssey, Positano and Sorrento have in common the legendary story of the Sirens tried to enchant Ulysses. Rich of historical sites also assumes importance for its monuments and history related to them, such as the cathedral of the 1400, elements that blend into themes Renaissance, Gothic and Byzantine. The Cloister and the Church of St. Francis of Assisi dedicate to him, the Correale Museum where you can see Neapolitan art collections, objects found during archaeological excavations of the area.

The home of Torquato Tasso sorrentine poet, famous in the world, it was the villa owned by Mastrogiudice (noble family of Sorrento), located on the “PROSPETTO”, that is, on stretch of coast that runs from the Church of St. Francis to the hotel Syrene. The villa was destroyed because it was built on a ridge of tufa that collapsed into the sea, it’s remained just a room with two arches and balconies. On the same stretch of coast was built Hotel Tramontano, where the remains villa’s of the famous poet, was merged, with other ruins of the Roman villa existed and that perhaps there was a continuation of the great villa of Agrippa Postumus.

The rich craft traditions Sorrentino has been increasingly perfected, and it became one of the Sorrento’s economy strengths, rich touristic attraction, offering a myriad of local products such as olive oil, lemons famous around the world for the production of the limoncello liquor, and inlaid woodworking known as intarsia.
