When youre in Sorrentos town square, take the pass under the medieval stone arch and wind your way down to the quaint fishing port on the Amalfi Coast: Marina Grande. This protective gateway to the marina was the only access to the town from the sea until the 5th century; in the 16th century it was opened by a traitor, allowing the Saracens to sack the city.
Today, fishermen fish as they always have and youll often see them cleaning or mending their nets or landing their catch. For the catch of the day, go to one of the waterside restaurants and bask in the rustic charm of this traditional fishing village. Have a glass of wine as the sun sets, watch the children play in front of St. Annes chapel or simply enjoy the view across to Vesuvius.
For more coastal fun, swim in the Bagni della Regina Giovanna or spend the day at Leonellis Beach.
