01 April 2006 - Dove Vacanze

Crossed the magic charm of the coast from Naples to Pompei, with the profile of Vesuvius in your eyes and the extraordinary beauties of archaeological sites without equals, another wonder awaits us: the Sorrento Coast. The first stop of our itinerary is Castellammare di Stabia, heir to the ancient Stabiae, destroyed during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, known for its very ancient spa and for its spectacular cablecar that, in few minutes takes you 1100 metres above sea level on Mount Faito, front which you can enjoy a fantastic panorama on the Neapolitan gulf and the surrounding mountains. Going forward, high on the sea. Vico Equense is an ideal place for holidays with a perfect balance between the joys of the beach and the pleasure of nice walks on the green hills at the back, with paths reaching the naturai beauties of Mount Faito. Then Sant'Agnello awaits us. Located on a promontory with wonderful terraces on the blue expanse in front of the mythical little islands of "li Galli" with primitive and wild crags, it offers wonderful and pleasant corners, gardens and villas rich in greenery, expanses of olive and citrus groves and ideal for excursions and for long hours ofsun on the cliffs of Marinella. The route ends in Sorrento, on a tenace plunging sheer into the sea with a 50-metre drop. Rich in history, legends and nice monuments, sang by the poets of all ages, in the 19th century was a privileged holiday resort for scholars, artists, dukes and princes, kings and emperors. Today it is crowded with international tourists. It boasts the Cathedral and the baroque Villa Terranova behind an avenue in the park leading to a wonderful panoramic viewpoint.
