By Viator, March 2018

5 189 Reviews | Add your review

Tucked between Naples and the Amalfi Coast in Italy’s Campania region, the lush landscapes of the Sorrentine Peninsula are a paradise for foodies, dotted with lemon and orange groves, cliff-top vineyards, and tiny fishing villages. Here are your options for Sorrento food and wine tours. 

Must-Try Dishes
The Campania region is one of the best places to eat in Italy, home to Neapolitan pizza, Caprese salad, and buffalo mozzarella cheese. Signature dishes in Sorrento include gnocchi alla sorrentina (gnocchi pasta with a tomato and mozzarella sauce), spaghettoni di Gragnano (a thick spaghetti pasta), Risotto alla Pescatora (fish risotto), and an abundance of fresh seafood including squid, mussels, octopus, and anchovies. Pair them with regional red wines such as aglianico and piedirosso, or whites such as fiano and falanghina.

Sorrento is also famous for its lemons. The tangy citrus fruits are found everywhere—drizzle lemon-infused olive oil over your salad, try the tasty dessert liqueur Limoncello, or indulge in delicious lemon gelato or lemon tiramisu

Must-Do Experiences 
  • Taste your way around Sorrento on a small-group walking tour of Marina Grande and the historic center.
  • Learn the secrets of Mediterranean cuisine during a cooking lesson, a cheese-making masterclass, or a pasta-themed cooking class.
  • Visit the estates and wineries of Irpinia and sample Campania’s award-winning varietals on a wine-tasting day tour led by an experienced sommelier.
  • Sip Limoncello, try your hand at pizza making, and enjoy a demonstration of treccia-style mozzarella braiding during a visit to a local farmhouse.
  • Hunt for truffles in Monti Picentini park, then tuck into a scrumptious truffle dinner on a private tour.
