Well worth the money, the train takes you to some lovely viewing spots and the lemoncello factory was a great experience, the little train is a must on your list of things to do

View not as good as should've been as the sun became shrouded in mist. Interesting to visit - could walk from our hotel. Did manage to see Sorrento and other surroundings but not everything.

This is definitely worth the uphill walk in Sant’Agata! The views of Sorrento and Versuvius are stunning and perfectly framed by trees - extremely peaceful and beautiful. Homemade produce is available but was closed when we visited.

Good place to get a view of the bays. Definitely worth a visit. Very quiet when we went and a quiet walk through the park.

Old monastery with fantastic views of Sorrento area, Lots of steps up the tower for even better views of the area, no good if you have vertigo or acrophobia.

The view from here is absolutely spectacular and not to be missed. The walk up to the monastery was definitely worth it. Stunning views of Mt. Vesuvius and environs and also of the Isle of Capri. Fortunately we also took a picnic meal of bread,...More
