Sorrento Hotel – The Origins

Sorrento Hotel History

Within easy reach of your Sorrento hotel are the City’s famous museums, where you can discover the origins of the town.

The name Sorrento is not taken from the Myth of the Mermaids (Sirens) but does in fact derive from the Greek verb “surreo”, meaning, “to flow together”.  This refers to the morphology of the Sorrentine Coast with its two very distinct seawater courses that emerge in the distance.

The archaeological artefacts conserved in the  Museo Correale and also Villa Fondi, in the  Museo Gorge Vallet, at Piano di Sorrento, are testimony to a Neolithic presence in villages in both the valley and on the surrounding hills.

The history of Sorrento has been reconstructed from archaeological finds and the multiple ancient sources of information available, even though they are often fragmented and difficult to understand.    To date the origins of Sorrento are controversial.  Some historians believe it to be of Greek origin, others of Etruscan.
