Christmas in Sorrento
Christmas on the Amalfi Coast

Sorrento is famous for its Christmas decorations, from the towering musical tree in Piazza Tasso to the Disney character village in the nearby park. Even the pretty lights in the tiny coastal villages like Atrani and Positano are charming, and make the town seem like living Nativity scenes.
On clear winter days, take the ferry across to Capri and spend the day exploring the quiet island, being sure to stop in the Piazzetta lit with holiday lights.
