Overview

Sorrento Cooking Vacation

Sunlight dances on the sea / Tender thoughts occur to me... so begins the song “Come Back to Sorrento,” made famous by Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. And that is what Sorrento is, the grace of sunlight dancing on the sea, the special light that permeates the Amalfi Coast, the scent of lemons, ceramic tiles under one’s feet, colorful dishes on one’s table. This is your home during a week-long exploration of Italy’s Amalfi Coast, a place where the elegance and sophistication of celebrity hotels and restaurants mix with local women chattering in dialect as they do the wash, and old men playing cards at sidewalk cafes. From Sorrento’s charming streets to the Amalfi Coast towns of Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi, from the waters of Capri to the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, your Sorrento cooking vacation will be a week to remember!
