The terracotta-tiled rooftops of Sorrento epitomize traditional Italian architecture, and there is much of that to be seen in the city. Visit the Sorrento Cathedral, a 15th-century Romanesque structure, with a majestically ornate interior of arches, domes, and religious paintings.

Sorrento is a resort town and tourists are well provided for with places to pick up traditional goods as souvenirs. The artisans of the region are known for their ceramics and lacework, and the ubiquitous lemons can be found on many a painted dish.
