"What a charming land!
Everything blooms delightfully!
Sorrento is dear to me as a second home!"
(Henrick Ibsen, 1881)
Sorrento, the pearl of the Sorrentine Peninsula, is sinuously perched on a tufa
spur and lapped by the clear water of the sea. This mythical land of mermaids, seductive
and charming, has always captured the collective imagination of artists, poets,
lovers of beauty and good life, enchanted by one of the most impressive natural
landscapes in the world and architectural masterpieces that reflect the beauty and
history of this city. Finally, nobody can forget the intense fragrance of citrus,
olive trees and vineyards grown on the surrounding hills, permeating the air with
their scented notes!
The Hotel Astoria is waiting for you in this wonderful setting, one of the most
famous and appreciated tourist destination in the world. Recently renovated, the
hotel is located in the very heart of Sorrento's historic center, just minutes walk
from the harbor, the main square, named to the poet Torquato Tasso, and some of
the most important and ancient monuments of the town.
The Hotel Astoria is modern and functional and offers its guests all comforts to
spend relaxing and exciting moments in the city where "the sea shines and the
wind strongly blows". Due to its strategic position, the Hotel Astoria is a
perfect starting point to visit Sorrento on foot, immersing yourself in that harmonious
whirl of paved streets, overlooked by colorful craft shops, churches rich in artistic
treasures of unexpected beauty, noble palaces with their monumental stone portals,
courtyards of antique charm, haracteristic views and romantic landscapes.
