Beautiful cloisters and if you are lucky you may find a pianist or violinist playing in the garden. Very peaceful and spiritual.

Highly recommend a visit to the cloisters they have art exhibition here and musically nights worth a visit but can hear from outside. This is also popular with people getting married

We found this church and quiet cloisters shortly after a wedding had taken place and a violinist was still playing in the cloisters whilst they had photos taken. Venue also houses art exhibitions. It is beautiful and tranquil and worth a step inside.

A hidden gem off the gardens near the San Francesco church. Moorish in style the garden is even more atmospheric at night with subtle illumination. You can see why it is popular for weddings.

Superb tranquil oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento town. The quiet wedding atmosphere was wonderful ... musicians good ... accessibility was great. Within walking distance to reception venue ... perfect. Loved it ... a civil ceremony in Nature’s Cathedral.

We stumbled across this place in the evening in the dark and witnessed a newly married couple having their wedding photographs taken. We returned the next day to visit the rooftop gallery above the cloisters.

One of my favourite places in Sorrento. The Cloisters of San Francesco is the remains of an old Monastery. In the heart of Sorrento next to the public gardens is a peaceful place where you can see the influences of the different civilizations. Nowadays concerts...More

Away from the busy streets of Sorrento a haven of tranquility. A wedding party were starting to arrive and I think a pianist was going to play. Beautiful surroundings for any bride.

I booked mine using a package holiday operator and they did all the work, including a wedding planner in Sorrento.
