The main square in Sorrento is called Piazza Tasso and the main street is the Corso Italia. Sorrento's historical centre has changed very little since the beginning of the 20th century, with little cobbled streets and alley ways with arches and colourful balconies bursting with flowers and hanging plants. There are many restaurants and local shops that sell traditional and handmade products such as ceramics, inlaid wood and cameos.
From Villa Athena the nearest local beach is just a few minutes away ( Marina di Puolo).
Other places of interest that you can reach from the Villa are the islands of Capri and Ischia or the historical and archeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii.
