Lemons, Libertines and Fun in the Sun

Lemons, Libertines and Fun in the Sun

Sorrento’s USP is limitless sunshine. Citrus blossom scents this seaside town. For 2,000 years high-end holidaymakers have sailed in for sun-kissed sojourns. Roman emperors Claudius and Tiberius loved Sorrento. 19th-century tearaways Lord Byron and Percy Shelley drank its limoncello and DOC Sorrentina wines. Sorrento today? You’ll find an open-air museum dedicated to café culture, perched above a glittering sea.

Your Guide to Sorrento

A Living Canvas, Ablaze With Colour

Lemons and libertines gave Sorrento the riches you’ll see on your Sorrento yacht charter. Humble cafés are decorated with 15th-century frescoes. The Basilica di Sant'Antonino is like the Sistine Chapel - in miniature. The Villa Correale Museum is sited in a citrus orchard. Its collection of Sèvres ceramics and Italian landscapes sparkle like a petite Louvre.

Authentically Italian

Yet Sorrento is so timeless that its Marina Grande harbour prohibits modern boats. Crew will unpack your kayak, or row you ashore instead. The most up-to-date item at Bagni della Regina Giovanna - an awesome natural swimming pool best reached by SUP - is a transistor radio relying soccer scores. In Sorrento, authenticity is a stroll away.

Vintage Luxury

Nothing shouts Italy like a vintage Fiat 500. From Sorrento your Y.CO Charter Specialist can arrange an Amalfi Coast tour using these 499cc cars, known in Italy as a Topolino - 'little mouse'. Only a Fiat 500 can shimmy down beach tracks and into portside parking spots. To see Positano and Ravello, they are almost as stylish as your Y.CO yacht.
