Sceneries and colours of spring in Sorrento

Sorrento and the Sorrento Peninsula are special destinations all year around for a relaxing holiday, but spring - and in particular the month of May - is the ideal season to fully enjoy our land.

Maybe for the temperatures already pleasant but not excessive, for the atmosphere cheered by the chirping of sparrows, for the more and more inviting rays of sunshine... or for the combination of all these things!

The sea around the peninsula is already crystal clear, even if we recommend the bath only to the bravest ones (the water is still cold in May).

 

Walks between green and blue

 

Spring is an excellent chance to discover the Sorrento Coast on foot, with curious and wide-open eyes. If you love hiking, you will find many trails to follow your passion in the Monti Lattari Park.

The mountain chain, divided between the Sorrento Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast, extends over 27 towns and hides suggestive views, even more beautiful in the light of the first sun. The highest peaks are Monte Sant’Angelo in Tre Pizzi and Monte Faito – this one not far from us - followed by Monte Finestra and Monte dell Avvocata.

In addition to the mountain peaks, on the Sorrento Peninsula there are extraordinary hiking trails where the sea and the Mediterranean scrub stay in a close embrace. We refer to the Bay of Ieranto, with an enchanted atmosphere and a wild beach to discover, and to Punta Campanella, extended into the territory once devoted to the goddess Minerva.

Or you can take a bus from Sorrento and reach the hamlet of Agerola (near Positano), where the Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei) begins: fragrant myrtle plants and indescribable sea views are waiting for you there.

 

A dip in the archeology

 

If you prefer ancient history to nature, a spring break in Sorrento allows you to visit some of the most popular archaeological sites in Italy. A few kilometres from the city, in fact, you find the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by the awful eruption of Vesuvius in 79 d. C.

Both sites keep today unique traces of everyday life of many centuries ago, immersing the visitor in a universe far from time. Ercolano, thanks to the 16 meters of lava and mud that protected it, has kept many details intact: the city buildings convey an unexpected charm, nowaday more than ever.

If you have some free time, visit the Capri island and the wonderful Villa Jovis, where emperor Tiberius retired to private life, tired of the pomp of Rome. The remains of the villa, lying on 7000 square meters, dominate the entire Monte Tiberio, overlooking a deep blue sea.

 

A valid tip for every spring excursion in the Sorrento Peninsula: bring with you always a hat, sunscreen and fresh water ... the sun starts to set in this season.
