Things to do
Holidays to Sorrento give you the perfect opportunity to explore - the island of Capri, Positano and Amalfi, Pompeii and Herculaneum are just some of the attractions within easy reach. Although the Sorrento peninsula does not have sandy beaches there are a few pontoon-style bathing establishments providing a place to sunbathe and swim with our all-inclusive Sorrento holidays. The best way to view all that Sorrento has to offer has to be by boat. You can charter a boat from your hotel's pontoon and embark on a voyage around Sorrento’s coastline. And with our cheap Sorrento sun package holidays from Dublin Ireland, you could enjoy a swim in the Blue Grotto's clear water and go for lunch on the Island of Capri.
If you can bring yourself to leave the laid back lifestyle of Sorrento you could visit the bustling city of Naples which is just an hour’s train ride away along the narrow-gauge Circumvesovianna line. Or take a trip to the quaint little fishing harbour of Marina Grande which is situated within an inlet, like a lost world submerged in rural charm. You can sample some local seafood on our cheap last minute deals to Sorrento.
The official language of Italy is Italian. English is understood in the larger cities but not in the more remote parts of the country.
The Euro (EUR) is the official currency, which is divided into 100 cents. Those arriving in Italy with foreign currency can obtain Euros through any bank, ATM or bureaux de change. ATMs are widespread. Travellers cheques can be exchanged with ease in the large cities, not so in the smaller towns. Credit cards are accepted in upmarket establishments and shops around the cities. Banks are closed on weekends, but tend to have better rates than casas de cambios.
