The last time I visited Sorrento was back in 2009, over a decade ago when I was studying abroad.

While Sorrento is a slightly larger city, we were both excited to stay here as we both have visited the other popular destinations along the Amalfi Coast back in 2014. Our beautiful hotel, Hotel Antiche Mura, was in prime location in the city center with luscious gardens all around the property. The swimming pool was surrounded by citrus groves filled with lemons and oranges.

During the day we walked around the quaint historic city center. We walked through Piazza Tasso, the main plaza in town where there are restaurants and shops all around the area.

We visited Basilica di Sant’Antonio, a medieval church with frescoes that was set up with gorgeous white flowers as a wedding was scheduled later that day.

After admiring the beautiful church, we walked to Chiostro di San Francesco (14th century monastery) and Villa Comunale (scenic park with views of the water).

We also walked to Marina Piccola and Marina Grande, both ports with various hotels, restaurants, and beaches in between. Look at those epic ocean views!

After our day adventures, we finished off our day at the hotel pool where we enjoyed an Aperol spitz, yum!

We were surprisingly still full from the pizzas we had in Naples for lunch so we skipped dinner this night.

The following day we had complimentary breakfast at the hotel and everything was so delicious. Their homemade cakes and tarts were so good!

After breakfast we walked for 40 minutes to Bagni della Regina Giovanna, a gorgeous swimming hole with turquoise waters and a rock arch formation.

After the swimming hole, we headed back to our hotel where we spent the rest of our afternoon at the pool relaxing.

Pool Time!

We finished our day with a fabulous dinner at Torre del Saracino, a great way to finish off our time here.

While our stay in Sorrento was short and sweet, we had an amazing time exploring the town, eating delicious food, and soaking up the sun.
