So many definitions have been ascribed to Sorrento: hometown of the poet Torquato Tasso, the land of colours, the land of the Mermaids, the city of the orange and lemon groves.
Each one of these definitions contains the truth!
With a bit of imagination, you can see the nimble Greek ships ride the waves and Ulysses bound tightly to the main mast to listen safely to the dangerous song of the mermaids, or look around the wonderful villas the Roman emperors built on the coasts, or again ships black as ink, fully armed and laden with ferocious Turks, like those that sacked Sorrento in 1558. Visiting Sorrento means to be in touch with all this interesting past. You will visit Sorrento Cathedral, built in Romanesque style; you will see also The Monastery of San Francesco and Veniero Palace: extremely rare as it represents the late Byzantine and Arab taste. And how not to mention the Old Mill Ruins and The old Walls you will have the chance to see, the only part of the Greek defensive wall still remaining.
After this interesting orientation tour your driver will escort you back to the Port.
