If you are in Sorrento and walking by you should stop in. The courtyard is beautiful. We were passing by one day and saw a wedding taking place here.

Located near the sea wall and opposite the sweet little park of St Francis, this church is quite beautiful. If you have time, stop in for a quite peaceful break.

This beautiful courtyard is located next to a church. It was a cloister. When we visited a bride and groom were coming out after her wedding ceremony. It's a very lovely area and worth a quick visit.

We are getting married here in May and we are going through Ionian weddings, they arrange everything for you, you tell them what you are after and they sort it out for you.
