WHAT YOU WILL VISIT

Sorrento Coast – Like a splendid dining space, the breathtaking beauty of the region only enhance the enjoyment of its culinary delights.
Hillside Farmhouse – Your scenic drive from the pier climbs the Sorrento Hills to bring you to a farmstead, where the host family is famous for its homemade delicacies. In this magnificent countryside, enjoy a tasting of their mozzarella, caciocavalo cheese and salami served with bruschetta and wine or mineral water.
Sorrento Town Center – Next you'll drive back down to the seacoast. Take time to explore this enchanting and historic city. Stroll and shop along the flower-filled main street, the Corso Italia, or discover a charming sidewalk café and settle in with a vino or espresso.
Gragnano Pasta Factory Tour – Just a short ride away lies the self-proclaimed "pasta capital of Italy." At one time, spaghetti hung from rods to dry along its wide main street as over 200 pasta makers plied their trade here. Townspeople boast that the combination of spring water, mountain air and sunshine combine to make local conditions ideal. See for yourself on a guided factory tour. You'll be introduced to all the steps of the production process – from blending to shaping to drying. Afterward, enjoy sampling some of the cooked pastas with a glass of wine – a delicious conclusion to your Sorrentine culinary adventure.
