Marina Grande is a small traditional fishing port that sits underneath the limestone cliffs on which the old town of Sorrento is perched.
Port of the Marina Grande fishing was the main source of living of the people in this town. Today, fishermen can still be found in Marina Grande sitting and mending fish nets with their bare hands.
Despite its name, Marina Grande (large marina) is actually the smaller of Sorrento’s two main harbors. It is also the older marina.
