With sunshine, views and top-notch food, holidays to Sorrento tick all the right boxes. Teetering on the edge of a cliff-top that drops sheer into the sea, this enchanting town enjoys a superb location looking out over the Bay of Naples towards Mount Vesuvius. No wonder it's the most popular summer holiday haunt on the Neapolitan Riviera.
Daily life is based around the main square, Piazza Tasso. Fringed with cafés and restaurants, it's the perfect spot for a morning cappuccino or a plate of spaghetti come lunchtime. Once the sun sets, the square transforms somewhat with immaculately coiffed young Italians pulling up on their Vespas to hit the late night bars. Not far from here you'll find a part of town called the 'Drains'. Don't be put off by the name. It's actually a maze of Medieval alleyways laced with tempting trattorias and artisan shops selling things like bottles of limoncello and inlaid wood.
Of course, if you want to get out and about, Sorrento's a great base. Places like Pompeii, Capri and the Amalfi Coast are all within easy striking distance. Travel to Sorrento, and you're in for a treat.
And what about accommodation? There's so much to choose from. If it's a luxury break in Sorrento you're after, book the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori from the Thomson A la Carte portfolio. Another popular property is the Grand Hotel Capodimonte, known for its breathtaking views. And then there's the Grand Hotel Flora, the Aminta and the Grand Hotel President – a new Gold property in 2009 – to consider.
So, whether you fancy indulging in some serious 5 star treatment or are just looking to bag last-minute holidays to Sorrento, this gem of a resort is sure to enchant you.

I spent a week in Sorrento, revisiting the town after ten years. We stayed at the above hotel which is almost 15 mins by courtesey bus out of town. This was not a drawback as the drive offered wonderful vistas. The hotel's situation must be unparalled... more on this review
