Whether you’re coming from Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol, Glasgow, Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh, London or Leeds (and breathe...), Sorrento is a top tourist choice for a sunny holiday.
Sorrento is a town in Italy which looks over the Bay of Naples, with fancy hotels sitting high on the cliffs and little shops selling antiques, ceramics, lace and woodwork. It’s a stone’s throw away from the trendy island of Capri, and the slightly terrifying Mount Vesuvius is just across the bay.

All-inclusive holidays to Sorrento
All-inclusive means you get breakfast, lunch, evening meal and (usually) certain drinks included in the price of your accommodation.
This can be useful, as all your meals are already paid for, but it can be a bit of a waste of money if you don’t want to hang around your hotel all day.
If you want a bit more freedom with your meals, you could consider other board types, like half-board, which includes breakfast and an evening meal; B&B, which is bed and breakfast; room-only, which does what it says on the tin; or self-catering, if you’d prefer to sort some of your meals out yourself.
Consider different board types and pick the option that best suits your Sorrento holiday plans - whether you’ll be out and about exploring or staying poolside will have an impact on your meal requirements.
When to go and what to do in Sorrento
Peak tourist season in Sorrento is usually between Easter and October, when the weather is hot and everywhere is open for business. Holidays to Sorrento in February and March offer a balance of good weather, low fares and less crowds.
Spring (March to mid-June) has pleasantly warm weather, and tourism starts to bloom.
In summer (mid-June to September) hotel prices rise and exploring places like Pompeii can get a little toasty.
The weather in Autumn (September to December) is mild but potentially rainy. Most of the crowds are gone by November, but things pick back up over Christmas.
Winter (January to March) is the time of year when the locals go off on their own holidays to avoid the cooler weather.
