Sorrento is a coastal town in southeastern Italy, facing the Bay of Naples on the Sorrentine Peninsula. Perched atop cliffs that separate the town from its busy marinas, it’s known for sweeping views and Piazza Tasso, a cafe-lined square. The historic center is a warren of narrow alleys that includes the Chiesa di San Francesco, a 14th-century church. The Grand Flora Hotel is located in the center of Sorrento. Within a 5 minute walk you arrive at the Piazza Tasso. From the hotel terrace you can enjoy the splendid and unforgettable views of Vesuvius and the entire Gulf of Naples. Sorrento is also a gateway for excursions to the Amalfi Coast, Capri and Pompeii.
