Location

The marvelous natural scenery makes the Sorrentine Peninsula one of the most famous tourist destinations in Italy. Protruding into the Tyrrhenian Sea, almost touching the island of Capri, it extends from Castellamare di Stabia to Punta Campanella, watershed between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno.

Art and tradition characterize the numerous towns, the most famous of which is Sorrento: perched on an imposing cliff over the sea, this charming town holds on to its medieval and classical memories, while also preserving Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

In this very famous area there is no lack of ‘wellness tourism’, like the thermal baths at Vico Equense, one of the most picturesque towns of the coast. But the great attraction of this land is in its natural beauty: the coastal road is one of the marvels of Italian scenery. Citrus groves, vineyards and olive groves that softly pour down the slopes towards the sea, the road follows the tortuous coastline, where curve after curve opens up incredible views of the Gulf of Naples, Vesuvius and Capri.

The coast is high, craggy and rocky, with sheer limestone cliffs that crumble into the sea, coves and rocky shores.

Massa Lubrense

Sun, sea, and tradition are the perfect cocktail for those who want a relaxing holiday. Massa Lubrense is the ideal destination, rich in history and flavors. Touched by the sea for about 20 kilometers by the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno, Massa Lubrense offers beaches and pristine bays on both sides.

Massa Lubrense is a natural oasis with lots of walking among ancient farmhouses, archaeological areas, towers, Mediterranean vegetation, and breathtaking views. More than 100 kilometers of trails run through the whole territory, touching all its 18 hamlets and the most pristine places. All trails are marked and reported in special maps.

On the whole area, you can see long stretches of olive and lemon groves, giving an intense scent to this country. The festival of lemon takes place during the summer in Massa Centro, giving the opportunity to taste local products made from lemon.

Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi

Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi (on the Two Gulfs) owes its name to its privileged hilltop location, between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno. The view of the “Two Gulfs” can be observed from the viewpoint of the monastery situated on the hill called Il Deserto, a short walk from the center of the village. Just downstream from this hill, in the area called Vadabillo, a vast necropolis came to light, with many tuff sarcophagi of the seventh and sixth centuries BC.

Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi is a tourist destination since the 19th century, thanks in part to its scenic location, but also for its well-known mild climate and healthy air. It overlooks the island of Capri and the islands of Li Galli. The perfect starting point to the Amalfi Coast, from Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi it is also possible to take many paths to Sorrento, Massa Lubrense, and the Fjord of Crapolla. Also, the panoramic Sirenuse Trail starts here.

Sorrento

At any time of the year, Sorrento is a veritable treasure trove of beauty. For its nature, history, and legends, it is visited every year by thousands of tourists. Sorrento is a town with a breathtaking landscape beauty. Steep on the sea, rich in historical and architectural beauties, Sorrento has always been a tourist destination of excellence, frequented by visitors on the Grand Tour and then by elite holidaymakers in the 19th century.

It is still that charming destination for those who wish to relax in a unique atmosphere: sun, sea, characteristic lanes full of shops, churches, museums, and monuments. The best way to get to know Sorrento is to get a little lost and wander around admiring the postcard-perfect views, browsing here and there, and walking down to the fishing village of Marina Grande or to the port of Marina Piccola.

Positano

Positano seems to be standing, leaning against the jagged mountain rock face, with many multicolored houses that seem to be built in a single cluster, all on top of each other. The town is very unique and incredibly attractive, capable of attracting attention to many visitors. It is the kingdom of many flights of little steps, of narrow passageways enlivened and colored by wonderful shops, lively bars and cafes, and restaurants that specialize in seafood.

Amalfi Drive

The Amalfi Drive is said to be one of the most spectacular roads in Europe and from Sorrento, the winding cliff top road offers breathtaking panoramic views from every bend. Amalfi, now a thriving holiday resort, was once a powerful and prosperous marine republic and homeland of Flavio Gioia, the inventor of the compass.

Ravello

Ravello was an important town of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200. Places to visit include Villa Rufolo, Villa Cimbrone, and The Church of San Giovanni del Toro (Saint John of the Bull).

Capri

No visit to Capri is complete without at least a few hours spent on the Mediterranean Sea surrounding the island. Whether you choose to join an organized tour or rent a private boat with captain, taking to the turquoise waters is the only way to explore some of the most beautiful parts of the island. In fact, many of the most enchanting stretches of the Capri coastline are completely inaccessible by land.

By boat, visitors are able to reach those secluded bays which are just perfect for swimming or sunbathing - far from the crowds crammed onto the tiny pebble beaches. A leisurely tour around the island will last roughly two and a half hours, including time for a quick dip in the sea. For those with more time at their disposal, full day excursions can easily be arranged.

Pompeii

Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD, Pompeii lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years and the excavations begun in the 18th century are still being carried out today. You can see the past prosperity of the town in the Roman villas, bathhouses, and temples which have been unearthed. Even an amphitheater has been found.

Naples

The city of Naples was probably founded by the Greeks around the 8th century BC, just kilometers from the older town of Partenope. This ‘new town’ or ‘Napoli’s’ has been absorbing the influences of its settlers and invaders ever since. Romulus Augustus, last emperor of the Roman Empire, was imprisoned here after being overthrown in 476.

In the 6th century, Naples was conquered by the Byzantines, and it was one of the last duchies to fall to the all-conquering Normans in 1039, as they founded the Kingdom of Sicily. In 1266 Naples and the kingdom of Sicily were given by Pope Clement IV to Charles of Anjou, who moved the capital from Palermo to Naples. In 1284 the kingdom was split in two and stayed that way till 1816 when they would form the kingdom of Two Sicilia’s.
