The beauty of Sorrento
Apart from the breathtaking sea cliffs and deep valley scenarios experienced in Sorrento, visitors are likely to enjoy the finest local wine, citrus fruits, nuts and olives. It is therefore no surprise that Sorrento is one of the most beautiful wedding destinations in Italy and even a place where couples can accomplish their dream honeymoon. The town traces its roots back to the Roman Empire thousands of years ago when it was known as Surrentum. In fact, the name Sorrento was derived from Surrentum hence it is one of the oldest towns in Southern Italy. Ancient ruins marked by defensive walls, secret tunnels and Roman churches are evident upon visiting Sorrento. Further, there are lots of shops selling wood carvings and art ceramics for newly wedded couples to take home as souvenirs. Additionally, the resort hotels within Sorrento are quite exquisite offering leisure activities such as massage, swimming and hosted parties.
Perhaps the only setback in Sorrento is lack of a suitable beach due to the cliff point access to the sea. However, tourists can visit the Amalfi coast which is just a few miles to the East. Therefore, couples can opt to do a beach wedding in Amalfi Coast and later move the party to Sorrento after sundown. Matter fact, the Amalfi coast is a UNESCO world heritage site and it has been featured in popular movie hits, albums and racing video game tracks. In regards to its exploitive surroundings, it is vital to find a local photographer whenever visiting Sorrento or Amalfi coast. Unlike a foreign photo taker, a local photographer knows the most captivating locations in Sorrento to take wedding photos.
