My Amalfi Coast, Sorrento photography course, is set in south western Italy. This classic coastal town, is a glorious location to draw inspiration from. Perched at the top of cliffs that separate the town from its busy marinas, it’s known for sweeping water views and the cafe-lined square of Piazza Tasso. The historic centre is a warren of narrow alleys that are home to the magnificent 14th-century Chiesa di San Francesco Church.
The Amalfi Coast, Sorrento location makes a perfect base for exploring the region’s highlights with a camera. To the east of Sorrento is the Amalfi Coast in all it’s splendour, the south is the best of the peninsula’s unspoilt countryside, to the north there is Pompeii and other iconic archaeological sites, and offshore is the fabled island of Capri. Check out my ‘intro‘ for photo course overview.
The ‘Maison Tofani’ Hotel is in effect a very posh Amalfi Coast B&B, in a palatial setting, literally! So lunch and dinner are for you to forage amongst the many restaurants and cafés that line the streets. The hotel has a very good reputation, having won the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards for 2013, 2014 and 2016 with an overall score of 92%.
Flights are not included as the logistics are rather variable, but I am happy to advise on routes, planning and car-hire if required. However I have attached a ‘clickable’ option to book my ‘door to door’ transfer from Naples Airport for arrival and departures. And I would suggest that this is a holiday where you can quite happily forget the car. There’s a good local Amalfi Coast, Sorrento bus service as well as trains to and from Naples. Oh and if you need any further persuasion, do read my blog on driving in Italy! If you enjoy walking, there is just so much to see, do and photograph in Sorrento, on foot.
