Lying on a hill overlooking the sea grows Sorrento.
The Sorrento Peninsula is presented as a great tourist area since ancient times. Together with the islands of the Gulf, the Amalfi Coast and Cilento, it's one of Italy's pearls.
Roman emperors and aristocrats and then rulers of Aragon and Anjou, as well as artists and poets such as Goethe, Nietzsche, Wagner, Ibsen chose this area for their vacations helping to increase the myth of a superlative beauty, never denied and confirmed in the course of time. Legend says that its waters inhabited the mythical Sirens, who attempted a melodious song towards Ulysse, but they were unsuccessfull and suddenly became rocks, the current islands of Li Galli.
Motorists will find these places will be hit by the beautiful landscapes, from light heavy sea, the bright green of the lemon trees.
