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 Castellammare di Stabia to Punta Campanella, watershed between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno.
Art and tradition characterize the numerous towns, among which the most famous is Sorrento: perched on an imposing cliff overlooking the sea, this charming town holds medieval and classical proofs, which are flanked by the architecture of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
There are, in this very famous area, the opportunities for wellness tourism, such as the thermal baths at Vico Equense, one of the most picturesque towns of the Sorrento peninsula. But it is in the natural beauty the great charm of this land: the coastal road is one of the wonders of the Italian landscape. By citrus groves, vineyards and olive groves gently sloping towards the sea, the road follows the tortuous coastline, curve after curve opens up incredible views of the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius and Capri. The coast is high, craggy and rocky, with sheer limestone cliffs that crumble into the sea, creeks and rocks.
