The lovely town of Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and has been occupying a Tufa terrace – a natural rock formation – for over 2,000 years. The town is located over white cliffs and is enclosed by limestone mountains on one side with the water on the other, giving it a very secluded and private feel. Visitors from all over the world enjoy this town for this reason, and the smell of the orange and lemon gardens scent the air all year round.
There are plenty of small hotels to stay in while in Sorrento and visitors here are encouraged to try the food at the small Ristorante di Leva where Sophia Loren filmed one of her movies. The owner of this small establishment prepares some of the dishes herself and many of the local flavours can be found here and in other restaurants in the town.
