Additional Details:
This lovely little town of Southern Italy, lying in the lap of rich and luxuriant lemon and orange groves, was the birthpalce of torquato Tasso (born 1544), the poet of "Jerusalem Delivered" and the lover of Leonara d'Este. There is a tine statue of him in the principal square in the town. Sorrento is to Naples what the hills are to the dwellers in the Indian plains: the breath of life and coolness to people sickened with heat.
