Sorrento: One of the best Amalfi Coast Towns

While there is a lot to love about the Amalfi Coast it can also be one of the more crowded, expensive, and frustrating places to visit in Italy.

The secret to enjoying your visit here isn’t going where your friends, or the guidebooks, told you to go – it’s finding out exactly which of the numerous Amalfi Coast towns fits your style of travel.

This accessibility is both a blessing and a curse because it places Sorrento firmly on the Amalfi Coast itinerary of most day trippers – meaning its population swells to the bursting point during the summer high season.
