The name Sorrento originates from the ancient name Surrentum and the myth of the sirens. According to the legend, only Odysseus and his companions were able to resist the charm of the siren song, and then the sirens turned into the rock. Whether this happened is not completely certain, but it is a fact that Sorrento still exists and prospers unlike other small towns. Sorrento is popular because of its location as a connecting point of the surrounding attractions. You can easily reach Naples and Pompeii from Sorrento, while enjoying quieter atmosphere.
For centuries, Sorrento was a target for northern European countries that wanted to invade Italy. Writers and painters have immortalized the city in words and pictures. Today, the town is quite small and its population barely exceeds sixteen thousand people. Not very far from the town, you can enjoy the beaches of Italy. The monuments and other places of tourist interest in Sorrento are the Museum of Correale di Terranova in a former noble palace displaying furniture, inlaid wood, porcelain, paintings of the seventeenth to nineteenth century; the Franciscan Monastery; the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine; the Basilica of Saint Antonino; and the Greek and Roman arch city gate to the old city Maue.
Sorrento hostels are spread throughout the town and it is good to have a look at the city map before you book your Sorrento hostel, as some are located in the very center of the town while others are almost out of Sorrento. A lot of the hostels in Sorrento are way below average standards, but there are some very good hostels in the city. Hostels in Sorrento are by no means cheap -- even the bad ones -- so price is not a very decisive factor for the quality of your hostel in Sorrento.
