The historic center is a warren of narrow alleys that's home to the Chiesa di San Francesco, a 14th-century church with a tranquil cloister. Sorrento makes a good base for exploring the region’s highlights: Pompeii, good food

Basically, there is the left side of the beach area, which is less commercialized (and cheaper), and the right side where all the bars/restaurants/lounges/clubs are. On the left side, there are also the Tulum ruins (which are disappointing compared to the other ruins in the area), and close to a small public beach. If

Each time the Meilleur Chefs invite a French winemaker who brings along the most exquisite vintages and exposes them during the evening. Based upon these vintages, La Bouitte’s chef invents a unique menu that accords perfectly with the wines.
