Points of Interest:

Pompeii: with Ercolano, Stabia and Oplonti, was mostly destroyed and buried under volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. The objects that lay beneath the city have been preserved for more than a millennium because of the long lack of air and moisture. These artefacts provide an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. During the excavation, plaster was used to fill in the voids in the ash layers that once held human bodies. This allowed archaeologists to see the exact position the person was in when he or she died. A large number of artefacts from the buried cities are preserved in the Naples National Archaeological Museum. The Pompeii, Ercolano and Oplonti’s Ruins have UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

Vesuvius: is a Somma-stratovolcano. It is a glimpse of unusual beauty in the panorama of the Gulf, entered in the collective imagination of Naples. It holds the world record for being the first volcano object of systematic studies, by the will of the reigning house of the Bourbons, studies that still continue by the Vesuvius Observatory. Structure from which the Americans took as example for the Hawaiian observatory. Its moderate height allows it to be easily reached causing many travelers to climb it even by bike.

Sorrento: It is located on the north-western part of the peninsula. The centre commands  harmoniously on a high tuff terrace, overlooking the sea, in the middle of lush vegetation.

Tourist destination for excellence, because of its natural and artistic beauty and its traditions. Sorrento is the largest center for the number of services offered and also the best known and appointed by the Sorrento Peninsula.  

Positano: The beauty of the territory fascinated Greeks, Phoenicians, even Romans, giving them a strategic commercial point. It became a privileged destination of gran tour of rich European families. It was also some famous artists’ residence, who have exalted its beauty, making it immortal in their works.

Sant'Agata on the two Gulfs: is the largest fraction of Massa Lubrense. Situated in the Sorrento peninsula, it owes its name to its unique location in which it is located, between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno. The "Two Gulfs" can be watched from the Monastery of the Benedictine Nuns sited on the hill "The Desert", near the centre of Sant'Agata and overlooks the city of Sorrento.
