Weddings in Sorrento are a source of heavenly pictures and incredible emotions that you will carry with you for the entire life. Sorrento is a famous resort near the picturesque Amalfi Coast of Italy. Fabulous nature, rich history and best traditions of hospitality earned Sorrento a reputation of a stunning wedding destination. The breathtaking landscapes and massive tuff cliffs overlooking the Bay of Naples make the town one the most appealing locations for visitors and tourists.
As the legend goes, it is Sorrento where the Sirens tempted Ulysses by their song – and who knows maybe it is the power of their enchanted call what still attracts travellers here. However, the history of the city goes even further. Phoenicians discovered Sorrento even before scenic Capri and Positano became well known. Later Greeks, and then Romans came here. The Roman noblemen highly appreciated these lovely sights and used to come here to spend their free time.
