Very much the Main Street and split in two with a pedestrianised area on one half and busy street on the other half. Full of shops, cafes, restaurants and always busy. Easy walk through town and always something different to see.

This is a nice shopping street down the center of Sorrento. It's lined with shops, restaurants, souvenir vendors, etc. At the end is a nice square and some pretty side streets.

Corso Italia is Sorrento's main street, stretching for miles. If you are staying in Sant' Agnello, as we were, it is a horrible 25 minute walk along the Corso Italia until you get to the good part in the centre of Sorrento. Here part of...More

The busiest and Main Street in Sorrento. Half of it open to traffic (train station side) and other half off Piazza Tasso square pedestrianised. Full of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants. Can be very noisy and gets very packed. Some shops quite pricy. Lots of souvenir...More

This is of the best shopping and walking streets I have seen. It is extremely popular with tourists both foreign and Italian and is a lively place as well as safe and clean. There are restaurants and more shops in all the narrow side streets...More
