Curiosity about Sorrento : Sorrento, Italy is a verdant seaside city perched in the hilly countryside in southwestern Italy. Nestled between the Bay of Naples off the Sorrentine Peninsula and the Lattari Mountains, this ancient city offers unbeatable vistas and delectable foods that will take your breath away. In fact, it is adored by the public so much that it was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997.
Before the Romans took over Italy, Greeks and Etruscans inhabited the Sorrentine Peninsula, as seen by the planimetry used in the layout of the town. Legend has it that the Greek warrior Odysseus (the main character in The Odyssey) founded a temple devoted to the cult of the Sirens; mythological mermaids who lured sailors to their death with their bewitching songs.
In the story, a benevolent sorceress who favours Odysseus, Circe, warns him that his ship will soon encounter the sirens. In a spur of ingenuity, Odysseus stuffs wax in his ears and the ears of his sailors. Odysseus then orders the sailors to tie him to the ship’s mast until they pass the alluring sea temptresses.
The city itself likely got its name from the sirens, rumoured to swim off the coast of Sorrento.
This is one of the best experiences...
