Sorrento Coast today
Blessed with beauty, wine and one unparalleled artistic legacy, Campania region stretches along the Tyrrhenian Sea, from the mouth of the Garigliano River to the Gulf of Policastro. The mild climate, the beauty of the coasts, the richness of its art and history, and the love for food make Campania a fantastic location for travellers, including the Gulf of Naples, Capri and Ischia, the Vesuvius, gloomy and mysterious, loved for its beauty and feared for its power.
Sorrento, a town that spreads over a terrace of tuff, seems to tumble into the sea. Music and entertainment, sun and sea, history and culture: these are pivotal elements of this land, which poets claims to be the last sight somebody should experience before dyeing – “see Naples and die”. Paestum; Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Torre Annunziata, the Chartreuse of Padula, the Royal Palace of Caserta are all pieces of History and Art that, alone, are worth a visit.
The Sorrento Coast is a ragged promontory on the southern end of the Bay of Naples, boasting a mild climate, stunning landscapes and a magical scent of lemons and seaside. The peninsula features a unique landscape with low and high hills, deep valleys and majestic mountains, where the man’s work to level even the most impervious areas and transforming them in the famous terraces degrading towards the sea, has been grandiose.
Composed by bays, sandy sunbathing spots, ancient rocks and terraced gardens of lemons – this is where the world famous Limoncello is produced, oranges, olives and grapes. Mount Vesuvius, the bay to Naples and Capri are all in sight from this area. While being in Positano means having to face thousands of people wandering hypnotised in search of some shadow, or a table, being in this part of the Coast means being able to visit the Amalfi Coast and the islands without having to panic: everything is at short distance, beaches are reasonably busy and villas are accessible without having to climb hundreds of stairs: a better deal for families with small children.
The line of beach clubs and restaurants on Marina del Cantone, the beach area of Nerano, is simply to die for: each restaurant offers fantastic food and wine, although Marinella is the most traditional and probably the best for an everyday meal, and some of the restaurants turn into clubs in the evening. Massa Lubrense, a holiday resort covering a large area with 18 beautiful villages each one offering different and unique landscapes, Piano di Sorrento and Sant’Agnello are the places to see.
