We were lucky enough to visit on a Saturday and watched 2 wedding ceremonies. The most beautiful place imaginable to exchange wedding vows. To the left of the photo there is a huge pepper tree, this is where the bride and groom exchange vows. Baby grande piano and harpist provided the music for these weddings. The gardens are just beautiful.... More

We encountered this small 15th century cloister on a stroll through Sorrento. It's not a "blockbuster" site (which we tend to avoid) but a small, quiet and beautiful space of great antiquity. For those who appreciate monastic architecture, or just plain beauty, without the crowds, it is a lovely diversion.

Fairly hidden little church with lovely courtyard which is well worth a visit. You can well understand why so many couples get married here, the photos will be stunning. A nice escape from the bustling town which wont take up too much of your time.

The cloister is a very peaceful place. Very lovely setting. A must see, along with the church of st Francis. The lookout just outside is overlooking the harbor and a fantastic view of Naples and the Vesuvus. Some great photo opportunities. There is a café where you can enjoy a nice coffee or maybe some gelato ???

Called in here on arrival as next to the lift up from the harbour. The flowers and plants were lovely. We didn't bother with the museum as we had our luggage with us.

Loved this place. It was very peaceful and very interesting to just stroll around courtyard and look and reflect in church.

We visited twice, the first time a wedding was taking place, the second was more peaceful. Atmospheric place, very picturesque.
