Sorrento Yacht Charter Guide
Perfumed hiking trails, dramatic views and cool Italian style
As the gateway to Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast, Sorrento may be small but it has long had a big reputation with those who like to travel by superyacht.
Reasons to Visit
- Marine Life
Perched atop the Golfo di Napoli, within striking distance of Naples, Pompeii and Herculanium, Sorrento is one of those towns that carefully balances the best of Mediterranean lifestyle. As lemon-scents punch the air and the perfumed floras of wisteria, mimosa, jasmine and vivid agapanthas scatter its landscape, it’s easy to see why it has one of the longest high seasons in the Mediterranean.
This can all be enjoyed on one of the many walks that have become such a popular pastime in the area. Hiking trails that hug the Lattari Mountains and Sorrentine Peninsula make a perfect way to stretch your legs after a day aboard your charter yacht and offer sunset views you’ll never forget. But it’s not just the town’s rural beauty that has inspired a long line of holidaying literary icons - from Byron and Dickens to Goethe and Tolstoy - its historic town is just as impressive. A lazy afternoon walk with gelato in-hand through the Piazza Tasso will take you through winding lanes, fine Italian stores and frescoed hotels.
While Sorrento certainly enjoys a rustic Italian-coastal charm, it isn’t lacking in the luxury befitting an Italy yacht charter vacation. It is well-known for its luxury resorts, which in turn have ensured the location of some spectacular hotels and fine dining restaurants. For dinner with a view (of the beautiful Bay of Naples no less) head to the renowned Terrazza Bosquet restaurant at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria. Headed up by Executive Chef Antonino Montefusco, you can feast on a menu of authentic Italian cuisine fused with modern international touches in an ambience of refined elegance.
If you are considering privately renting a yacht for your family or friends to visit Sorrento in Italy as part of your summer vacation, you can view the entire fleet of luxury yachts which are available for crewed Amalfi Coast yacht charters.
