Beautiful Sorrento Italy is a driver’s nightmare. It is wedged on a ledge under the mountains and over the Mediterranean, surrounded by lemon and olive groves. An attractive resort that is well located for sightseeing. Sorrento is the gateway to the Malfi coast and has an unspoiled old quarter, lively shopping and animated gelato vendors.
