Perched on a tuff cliff above a sun-drenched bay, the town of Sorrento might lack fine-sand beaches, but it makes up for that fact with an abundance of other outdoor offerings, both on and off the water. The Italian city is also a great base for heading out on adventures along the coast. Here are some of the best ways to get outside while in Sorrento.
By day, strolling a traditional lemon farm to taste local products is a popular outing, while late afternoon hikes to scenic points in the region offer stellar sunset views. Travelers can also take a casual trek through the orchard-dotted volcanic hills around Sorrento, or embark on one of Italy's most beautiful hikes, the Path of the Gods, which connects many Amalfi Coast villages. Another longer hike winds through the Lattari Mountains to the peak of Faito Mountain, where hikers are rewarded with a panorama of the coast extending from Cilento to Vesuvio.
