Christmas and the New Year in Sorrento

Visiting Sorrento in December

December in Sorrento is all about one thing: Christmas!

What to Do in December

Each weekend in December, Sorrento has street artists, concerts, parades, and “Villaggio di Babbo Natale” (Santa's Village) in the garden at Villa Fiorentino. The town is decked out in seasonal lights and decorations, and Corso Italia makes for the perfect backdrop for a seasonal stroll.

Christmas in Sorrento

We suggest you plan an afternoon exploring Amalfi and Atrani, where the Christmas lights are also beautiful after sunset, or Salerno for a more artistic take on seasonal decorations.

Christmas on the Amalfi Coast

Don't miss Naples at Christmas, especially the famous “San Gregorio Armeno” lane, where traditional Nativity sets are made by hand.

A Day in Naples

Weather permitting, a trip across the water to Capri is always a fun excursion, and there are daily ferries from Sorrento all year round.
