In pictures: The colourful harbour of Marina Grande
Tucked away around a headland which separates it from Sorrento is the pretty fishing port of Marina Grande. Pastel-coloured buildings line the harbour and the hillside above it, painted in summery shades of blue, pink, yellow and green. And down by the water the narrow strip of sand was packed with people on a sunny Sunday – fishermen painting their boats, restaurants serving up plates of freshly caught seafood, kids splashing in the sea and women gossiping while making a start on their tans. Flashy hotels line the cliffs above, but down in the harbour you feel like local life hasn’t changed for years, even though you’re only a 10-minute walk back to the traffic and bustle of central Sorrento.
