Christmas in Sorrento

Surprisingly few of us seem to realize how lovely ITALY is in the run-up to 'il Natale'. This country with its dazzling flair for ornament, its genius for foodstuffs and its reverence for family is surely an ideal target for the seeker of Christmas ambience. The lights are heart-meltingly pretty, the shops are stocked with glossy and mouthwatering goods, and the streets full of friendly people genetically predisposed to 'passeggiata' (take a long evening stroll) whatever the temperature. Not that the temperature ever gets too ruthless. Cold, clear days graced with cheering sunshine are the December norm across most of Italy.

Some of Italy's most well-loved towns are arguably MORE attractive in the run-up to Christmas than they are in the height of summer. Sorrento is a perfect example. This unashamed tourist-town on a rocky cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples teems with foreign visitors all summer long. They don't come for the beaches (Sorrento has none to speak of). They don't come for the monuments, museums or churches (Sorrento is too fun-oriented to boast many of these). They come for the sheer pleasure of wandering Sorrento's buzzy lanes and piazzas lined with little shops; they come for the lively cafs and bars, the boisterous evening passaggiata.

Come to Sorrento in December and all these pleasures are undiminished, but the town is enjoyably full of Italians rather than northern Europeans. Market stalls hawk shiny boxes of panettone and sumptuous food hampers, delicate lights prettify the palm trees and the pastel buildings, and the whole town hums with colour and life.

On Sorrento's shopping streets, even in the winter, summer colour is everywhere - in the ubiquitous bright bottles of limoncello, in the hedgerow-like displays of vivid hot chillies, and in the massive citrus fruits that blaze undimmed by cool December.
