Sorrento, Italy

This is a charming resort town which really knows how to welcome tourists. Service always comes with a smile in the shops, cafs and restaurants around its pretty piazzas and you will also discover some fascinating buildings including a 15th century cathedral and the 14th century Correale Palace. Jewellery stores galore and plenty of designer labels in fancy boutiques make this an exciting place for shopaholics, too. The main attractions of this region are the extraordinary sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the frenetic city of Naples and the swish island of Capri.
