Sorrento, how many definitions have been ascribed to this locality, one of the most well-known international tourist sights. Sorrento,native city of the poet Torquato Tasso, who was born here in 1544; kind Sorrento; Sorrento: land of colours; Sorrento: land of the Mermaids; Sorrento, the city of the orange and lemon groves, etc.Each one of these definitions contains the truth because Sorrento is indeed a very pretty little city where kindness and hospitality are a combination that is handed down from one generation to the next. Sorrento, not to be rhetorical, is indeed the land of colours: brilliant or delicate hues depending on the change of the seasons. If you just pause a moment to observe how emotional a sunset can be when you gaze in the direction of Punta del Capo, of Ischia or Procida,
the outlines of which can be seen clearly, you will be
amazed by the variety of colours and the beauty of the
scene. Or look, preferably from the sea, towards the
majestic ridge of tuff rock that changes colour at every
hour of the day.
