Thank you!
Sorrento, a lovely old town clinging to a cliffside overlooking the most beautiful part of the Gulf of Naples, some thirty-nine kilometers southeast of Naples. Tourism has a long history here. It was a compulsory stop on the 19th-century 'Grand Tour' and interest in the town was first sparked by the poet Byron, who inspired a long line of holidaying literary geniuses – including Dickens, Goethe and Tolstoy – to sample the Sorrentine air. The romance persists
