Sorrento, a land of colors and the homeland of Torquato Tasso, is a coastal town of the Sorrento Peninsula located in front of the Bay of Naples. Sorrento has been influenced by different cultures over the centuries. Greeks, Romans, Normans, Aragonese all passed through here, leaving their mark and receiving in return the fruits of a generous nature and the poignant landscapes of one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. Since the nineteenth century, Sorrento has always been a great tourist attraction dating back to the era of the “Grand Tour” when the European Aristocracy considered it essential to know and understand the Mediterranean.
