Exploring Sorrento with a Car Hire
Sorrento is home to one of Italy's most fascinating religious rites, the procession of "Our Lady of Sorrows." Also known as the "visit in the sepulchers," the procession is comprised of two distinct parts and takes place annually on Good Friday.
In the first procession, which begins at 3:30 in the morning, hundreds of white hooded participants are accompanied by a choir through town, carrying a representation of the Madonna. The second procession, taking on a more solemn air, begins at 8:00 PM and represents the Madonna's mourning. Hundreds of participants, this time dressed in black hoods, again march through Sorrento's main streets. This is just one of the many incredible things to see in Sorrento.
