Overlooking the Bay of Naples in Southern Italy, Sorento started as an important trading post in the Middle Ages. Today, the popular tourist destination can be reached easily from Naples and Pompeii, making it a great starting point for those exploring the cities along the Amalfi Coast. With its long rows of lemon trees and olive vines, it’s also a picturesque locale to spend a day. Visitors can take a trip back to the 15th century at the Sedil Dominova, a domed building that was once a meeting place for nobles. Today, it’s adorned with trompe l'oeil frescoes and serves as a popular spot to sit and drink espresso or play cards out front. The Piazza Tasso—or center of town—is named after the poet Torquato Tasso, and a marble statue of him stands in the middle of the square. Today, Piazza Tasso remains a symbolic gateway to the old town—peppered with cafes and horse-drawn carriages. For souvenirs, visitors can pick up a bottle of locally made limoncello—a sweet, Italian lemon liqueur—and other local artisanal products at Piemme.
