Sorrento, a small town in Ascension Parish, was first known as Conway before being renamed in 1909. The town received its name from William Edenborn, a German immigrant who built the railroad through the region. He named the town Sorrento after the city in Italy where he took his bride for their honeymoon. Sorrento is convenient to the plantations of River Road and is home to the River Parish Community College and The Cajun Village, a collection of shops featuring Louisiana artists and products.
