The Basics

After docking at Sorrento Cruise Port, depart on shore excursions by land or sea to the best-known towns along the Amalfi Coast—Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello; most shore excursions include port pickup and drop-off. Alternatively, stay in Sorrento proper and tour the old town’s artisan workshops, boutiques, historic churches (such as the Basilica di Sant’Antonino and the Church of San Francesco), and shady piazzas in the company of a local guide.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Sorrento Cruise Port is a tender port, so you'll be taken ashore by smaller boats (tenders) upon arrival.

  • Shore excursions usually depart directly from Marina Piccola, though some may depart from Piazza Tasso in the center of Sorrento.

  • There are no trains from Sorrento to the Amalfi Coast, but buses depart from outside the train station—keep in mind that they become very crowded in summer.

  • The busy commuter Circumvesuviana train runs from the Sorrento train station to Pompeii and Herculaneum.

  • Public ferries depart from Marina Piccola for Capri and Naples year-round, and for Ischia and the Amalfi Coast in summer; book a private boat tour to avoid the long lines.

  • Don't leave Sorrento without sampling the region's famous lemon liqueur, limoncello.

Port Information

Sorrento is a tender port, meaning it’s too shallow for ships to dock right next to the shore; as such, allow a little extra time to get to and from your cruise ship. Sorrento is a popular tourist destination and English is widely spoken, although Italian is the official language. The currency is the euro.
