The basics

The Correale di Terranova Museum is housed in the 18th century Palazzo Correale, named for the aristocratic family who has owned this estate since the early 15th century when a smaller villa stood here. Visit their private collection of paintings, Murano glass, Bavarian crystal, Capodimonte and Sevres porcelains, and Greek and Roman archaeological finds; afterwards, take a stroll through the expansive garden.

Most Sorrento walking tours and shore excursions begin in Piazza Tasso, with visits to the baroque Santuario della Madonna del Carmine and nearby Palazzo Correale, before exploring the maze of shop-lined streets in the historic district and the sleepy fishing hamlet of Marina Grande on the water’s edge below town. Sorrento is located about an hour from Mt. Vesuvius and the Pompeii and Herculaneum archaeological parks, making it the perfect base for day trips.
