The Sorrento Peninsula is a strip of land that extends into the Tyrrhenian Sea and is defined by two areas: the side that stretches out into the Gulf of Naples which represents the Sorrento Coast, while the area that stretches toward the Gulf of Salerno joins the Amalfi Coast. The peninsular territory is crossed by the historical chain of Lattari Mountains that stretch towards the sea and reach their peak in the area of Punta Campanella, opposite the island of Capri. At one time the island was wholly united to the coast and as you can see from its current location, Capri seems to be united to the Sorrento Peninsula by an imaginary extension. The most popular tourist destination and offering the largest number of tourist services throughout the peninsula, is Sorrento.
The town of Sorrento has dense vegetation spread over a volcanic tufa terrace that is positioned at a height of 47 meters above sea level. Among gardens and citrus (from which comes the production of the typical Limoncello of Sorrento) we find its charming old town of Roman origin, its main square built in honor of the writer Torquato Tasso and beloved beaches with the ancient village of Marina Grande.
With Amalfi Sails you will sail along the Tyrrhenian Sea to marvel the Sorrento Coast directly from the sea. We organize private tours, group trips and sightseeing tours by boat to Sorrento and all the beautiful landscapes that surround it. Our routes include the entire coastline with the following steps: Capo di Sorrento, Queen Joans bath’s, Marina di Puolo, the Saracen Tower, the coast of Massa Lubrense, the Scoglio del Vervece, Punta Campanella and the island of Capri on the horizon.
We can pick up our clients from any location to begin their tour of Sorrento and during your excursion you can stop to bathe in the quieter areas and have lunch in the tastiest restaurants of the area. We remind you that with Amalfi Sails you can include on board (with a small extra fee) an English speaking guide.
