Can a small town of 16.400 inhabitants become one of the capitals of world tourism? Yes, of course! Sorrento proves it.
Set on top of a green, panoramic promontory, rivers and creeks all around (the ancient name Syrrenton means: confluence of rivers) it is the favorite place for many travellers. Foreigners already loved it back in ancient ages, it was the favorite holiday place for the rich Romans, but only in the 18th century Sorrento became a tourist goal for Americans, French, English, Germans and later on also for Asians and Russians.
