Sorrento

With a prime location between Naples and the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento is an untouched coastal gem. Perched on the cliffs overlooking the bay, its scenery is painted with deep valleys, high mountains, and citrus groves. An idyllic location for small and medium-sized events, Sorrento's history, culture and food offer an alluring range of incentive options.

Hilton Sorrento Palace

Home to the largest conference centre in Sorrento, this beautiful 4* property brings a real sense of class and sophistication to meetings and events for up to 1,500 people. Just 45 minutes from Naples International Airport, Hilton Sorrento Palace also makes a perfect base for exploring the region's delights.
