When to fly:
The high season for booking flights to Sorrento is June to September but temperatures are high during this time and the town is buzzing with tourists. During these months the streets of Sorrento become alive, animated and busier than ever due to the full calendar of events that take place during the summer months. Spectacular events fill the magical city from 14th June until 30th September offering days and evenings of concerts, exhibitions, dance and gastronomy.
April to June and October is another time to consider looking for great deals and the cheapest prices as there are several events, such as The Grape Festival, for locals and tourists to enjoy. Held on the hills of Priora in Sorrento, the event has now become an annual tradition for the autumn season in Sorrento and offers attendees the chance to try a variety of local dishes and delicacies accompanied by some of the best wines of the Sorrentine Peninsula. Alongside wine tasting are demonstrations of ancient methods of making wine, dance, food and theatrical plays.
The weather is also pleasant and there are fewer crowds; this is a great time to find cheap flights and great deals on villas and hotels.
The off season is November to March when you will see few tourist crowds, but the weather can be chilly and damp so it may not be the best time to book your airline tickets if you are looking for some sun.
Located on Italy’s Amalfi Coast and only a short distance from Naples, Sorrento is one of Italy’s most beautiful towns. Flights to Sorrento arrive via Naples and from there, the journey to Sorrento along the mountain roads of the coastline is filled with some of the most beautiful scenery. Sorrento is a picturesque town, with blooming gardens and plenty of outdoor cafes and restaurants. For the perfect moment, take a walk to Sorrento’s Museo Correale (the town’s famous museum) and watch the sunset from atop the hill. The city faces the west so the views are spectacular.

- Try the local speciality limoncello after your meal. It is a digestif made from lemon rind, alcohol water and sugar. Incredibly sweet, it packs quite a punch. Many restaurants will bring you a free glass of the bright yellow liquor once you've finished your meal.
- If you find yourself becoming poetic or literary it is not surprising: Keats, Byron, Goethe and Walter Scott reputedly came here, while Noel Coward had a house on Capri.
