Upon arriving, we decided to do a little bit of sight-seeing for an hour or two around Sorrento before hopping on the Circumvesuviana to Naples, then onwards to Rome.
Corso Italia is Sorrento’s main shopping area. You see leather goods from bags to shoes for sale. Fresh fruits and vegetables. There are silk scarves, kitchen towels and various trinkets to pick up to serve as memorabilia.
You will reach the cathedral as you walk along Corso Italia. You’ll then hear a buzz. The buzz of people talking and spoons and forks scratching on plates. There are restaurants right in front of it. We were a bit hungry already but decided not to have lunch there. Too many tourists.

Since it’s always better to enjoy food with nice ambiance and few people, we decided to walk around until we saw a panini bar. There were more locals here which was better.
There is something about the “light” in Italy. It brings out the warmth in everything it touches.
