PLACES TO VISIT
MARINA DEL CANTONE
Marina del Cantone overlooks on the gulf of Salerno and it is situated between the bay of Jeranto and Recommone's beach. You can reach it from Sant' Agata by bus or by car: it takes about 15 minutes and it's possible to park. Walking for 10 minutes, it's possible get to the beach of Recommone through a typical and panoramic path where you find, along your way, a cost guard tower built in the XV century, with the purpose of defence against the pirates. The coast of the bay created the mairmaids myth, trasformed into the three rocks called "Li Galli".
BAY OF JERANTO
The Bay of Jeranto represents one of the best walks in this area; you can reach the path from Sant'Agata sui due Golfi by car or by bus in 15 minutes. From the path you can admire the wonderful view of Capri, Amalfi coast, Marina del Cantone and San Costanzos' mount.
A splendid and famous holiday resort, Sorrento stands on a terrace rising steeply above the sea on one of the most spectacular points of the Campanian coast. Because of its enchanting position and mild climate, sheltered by the surrounding hills, Sorrento has been a favourite resort since Romans times, (Agrippa, Augustus and Antonius all had villas here) and it became an elite tourist resort from the eighteenth century, its hotels welcoming such luminaries as Ibsen, Wagner and Nietzche.
Positano seems to be standing, leaning against the jagged mountain rock face, with many multicoloured 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 coloured by wonderful shops, lively bars and cafes, and restaurants specialised in seafood.
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. The beautiful cathedral, with its ornate façade, stands at the top of steps leading up from the main square, and houses the remains of the patron saint of Amalfi, Saint Andrew.
ISLAND OF CAPRI
Capri is a sea of emotions, a dream, a million charming secrets to discover: the isle of Capri has two communes: Capri and Anacapri. It is sourrounded & bathed from the Mar Tirreno,
distant 35 km from the Neapolitan coasts and connected to the peninsula sorrentina from a submarine rocks
extension along 5 Km.There are many natural beauty like the Blue grotto and Faraglioni rocks. The easily way
to get on Capri island is embarking on the ferries from the port of Naples, or from Sorrento.
Mt Vesuvius is the only active volcano in Continental Europe, the most populated and it is also the most extensively studued volcano on the Earth.
The current shape of the volcano is the result of the continual alternation between "explosive" type eruption, which have produced pyroclastic deposits
POMPEI - ERCOLANO
Pompei holds an intense fascination for visitors today. It is high on the list of Wonders of the World. Following the eruption of the Volcano Vesuvius in the year 79 AD, Pompei lay buried . The excavations begun in the 18th century, and are still being carried out today. You can still see some of the ancient streets of Pompei which include the remains of a roman cevilization dating back to 79 BC . The catastrophe of 79 AD destroyed Pompei but also Herculaneum. They have been submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardned into a soft tufa (a kind of course rock) that preserved many of the timber features and household objects which can be seen today. You can reach Pompei and Herculaneum by train from Sorrento station that takes only 15 minutes from Sant' Agata.

"Very spacious apartment, great price, fantastic views and very quiet."
The booking was very easy - fixed up by email and deposit paid by PayPal within a couple of hours of sending the enquiry.
The property is in St Agata sui due Golfi, not Massa Lubrense as stated on the website - this is significant because St Agata is a much nicer small town than Massa. If wanted, there is easy and cheap access by bus to Sorrento (nearest major town with train station to Pompeii etc).
The apartment is large and very pleasant, with amazing views including Capri from the kitchen window and balcony. There were plenty of towels and endless hot water.
The owner's mother met us in town upon our arrival (which was 2 hours later than we expected, so she was very accommodating) and took us to the property as sat navs do not find it. The owner visited twice and was very friendly and helpful - we felt we could phone if we had any problems, but didn't need to in fact.
It is quietly situated but not down one of those narrow paths (roads!). There is a short-cut to walk into the town, making it max 5 mins away on foot. There are several small supermarkets, bakers, butchers, chemists etc in St Agata, as well as restaurants and bars.
The price was very reasonable for such a nice place. Highly recommended!
