Villa Athena is located in a very strategic position, infact to reach Sorrento Centre you need only 5 minutes driving ( 3 km) .

Places of interest in Sorrento include the Basilica of St. Antonino, the Cathedral, Sedile Dominova, Saint Francis Convent, Marina Grande, the Correale Museum, the museum-workshop of Wood Intarsia, and Capo di Sorrento where the ruins of the Villa Pollio Felice, known as the Baths of the Regina Giovanna, lie sleepily overlooking the bay.

Some of the main products here are olive oil, lace, mozzarella and lemon liqueur. Sorrento and it's surrounding area have lots of market gardens and vineyard where many of the grapes used to make local wines are grown together with oranges, lemons, artichokes and aubergines. 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.

The Amalfi Coast is at 20 km distance.
