The place

green, only 700 meters (about 2,297 feet) from Piazza Tasso, which is the heart

of the historical and tourist center of Sorrento.

umbrella, and deck chairs. Moreover, every guest at Villa Arturo will have a

large and beautiful shared swimming-pool at their disposal.

The garden and the swimming pool

The garden of Villa Arturo is a typical garden from Sorrento, where lemon and

orange trees are cultivated. It is a garden filled with colors and intense

perfumes: all among the green and shiny crowns of lemon and orange trees and

their yellow and orange fruits reflecting their colors like sun-like little

spheres.

And in case you come in May, you will find the citrus trees at Villa Arturo and

all over Sorrento in bloom: the sweet and intense perfume spreads from gardens

and takes over streets regardless of the traffic there might be. As an old

Neapolitan song says, “it's that scent, which along the sky and the sea of

Sorrento, grants us joy to live and willingness to sing!”

Around the swimming-pool, you will also find a green lawn rich in citrus trees.

You will find sun loungers and umbrellas as well.

The swimming-pool is 9 x 5 meters (30 x 16 feet) large, and it opens from Easter

to the end of October.

The Campania region

If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.

The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.

If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.

Sorrento, Campania

Sorrento is one of the best known resorts in Italy, situated on a tract of coastline of unrivalled beauty, on the northern slope of the Sorrentine Peninsula. This sheltered spot, surrounded by luxuriant hills where vines, olives and above all high quality citrus fruits are grown, was once the site of choice where the wealthy Romans used to build their villas, and it has been a highly prestigious retreat since 700. Sorrento has been nicknamed “La Gentile” because of the gentleness of its climate, the refinement of its streets and gardens and of the friendliness of its inhabitants.

Sorrento nestles on a tufaceous terrace, 50 meters high, which falls steeply down to a blue, crystalline sea. This peculiar geographical position gives it a special character. The city does not have a promenade, but looks down, like a balcony, over the port and two Marinas, with unexpectedly charming views. Access to the sea is gained mostly via stairs, passageways carved into the rock and lifts.

The origin of the name Sorrento – Surrentum – is poetically dated back to the Sirens who, legend has it, lived in the rocks of the gulf, from where they tried in vain to ensnare Ulysses with their deadly song. The city’s origin is very old: sited in an area that was inhabited in prehistoric times, Sorrento was probably founded by Greek settlers and then subjected to the dominion of the Sannites. In the third century B.C., the Romans who, in the first century B.C., established a Municipality there occupied it. In the early centuries of the Sorrento Empire, it became an important resort and abounded in splendid villas with their flourishing gardens and numerous temples. From 420 on it became a Bishopric. During the Middle Ages it was dominated by various powers; thereafter, its history was identified most often with that of the Reign of Naples. In 1558 it underwent the cruelest attack by the Saracens who sacked it. Following this episode, a wall and defense and watchtowers, placed on neighboring spurs, surrounded the city. In 1554 the poet Torquato Tasso, Sorrento’s most famous son, was born.

In the old part of Sorrento the Greek-Roman structure of the town can still be detected, with the parallel streets intersecting at right angles.

Today, at the heart of the city, stands Tasso Square where, besides the monument of the famous poet, is the statue of St. Antonio, patron saint of Sorrento. Corso Italia begins from the square; a lively, elegant street, with a wealth of shops and meeting place.
