During our visit of the Amalfi Coast, we stayed the nights over at the Johanna Park Hotel– a boutique hotel located on the outskirts of Sorrento. Our hotel provided a free shuttle between a set period of hours that took us downtown and back. Of course, we took advantage of this service on one of the nights to explore the town.

Sorrento, historically, has been known as the land of mermaids and orange and lemon groves. Think back to the legend of Odysseus when he bound himself to the mast of the ship to prevent himself from being lured by the alluring mermaids’ song. The place is a magical paradise for beach goers and tourists wanting a place to relax.
