Welcome to Sorrento, city of Torquato Tasso!

Welcome to Sorrento: the city of the sun, the sea and Torquato Tasso! Yes, did you know that the famous writer of “La Gerusalemme Liberata” was born here? In his honor is renamed the main square of the city. You will get there by walking from Piazza Lauro along Corso Italia. Built on one of the valleys, the statue of Sant’Antonino, Protector of Sorrento, dominates the center of Tasso Square, while the statue of the poet is on the left.
