The last two stages are in the inner part of the delightful peninsula, the plateau of Agerola and Gragnano, at the foot of the Lattari mountains.

Nestled in chestnut woods, the plateau of Agerola (700 metres) is famous for San Lazzaro from whose “belvedere” look out point you can see the Concadei Marini, with its magnificent “Grotta dello Smeraldo” (“Emerald Grotto”), so named for the color that water takes through the reflections of sunlight on the rock.
The final route, Gragnano, offers an excursion in the countryside departing from the road of the “Valle dei Mulini” (“Mills Valley”) to Amalfi.

You can also follow the mule track that leads to the foot of the medieval village of Castello, or take the forest trails that meander from Aurano to Mount Mogano with its woods.

Sorrento Hotel – Sorrento

sorrento hotel viewAn unashamed resort, Sorrento is still a civilized old town. Even the souvenirs are a cut above the norm, with plenty of fine old shops selling ceramics, lacework and intarsio (marquetry items) – famously produced here. The main drawback is the lack of a proper beach; the town straddles the cliffs overlooking the water to Naples and Mt Vesuvius.

Sorrento makes a good base for exploring the surrounding area: to the south, the best of the peninsula’s unspoilt countryside and, to the east, the Amalfi Coast; to the north, Pompeii and the archaeological sites; offshore, the fabled island of Capri.
