Marina Piccola and Marina Grande: the two pearls of Sorrento
Your tour starts from Marina Piccola di Sorrento, the charming port of the Campania town, not far from Piazza Tasso. Marina Piccola, which lies placidly in a welcoming cove, was once known as Marina di Capo Cervo, from the name of the small promontory that overlooks it.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, work began that transformed the ancient city village into the current crossroads of maritime traffic on the peninsula. The only surviving from the past, the ancient chapel of Santa Maria del Soccorso. Finally, the characteristic bathing establishments are also noteworthy, which due to the small size of the beach, were built on some stilts.
The next stop on your trip is the "big sister" Marina Grande, which has kept its picturesque aspect of an old fishing village.
Alongside the testimonies of the past, however, there are also those of the present, with the renowned establishments, clubs and restaurants, which make Marina Grande a popular destination for tourists and VIPs from all over the world, as well as an exceptional set for many cinematographic masterpieces. Breathe in fully this magical and refined atmosphere and get ready for the next stop ...
The splendid sea of Massa Lubrense: Cala di Puolo and Cala di Mitigliano
Now we head towards Massa Lubrense where we can admire the enchanting Cala di Puolo, dominated by a beautiful beach of pebbles and sand, gently caressed by a sea of a thousand and intense shades, ranging from clear blue to emerald green.
After this stop, another wonder of Massa Lubrense awaits you, the Cala di Mitigliano, where you can find the clearest and most transparent water in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Here you can fully enjoy the wonderful fish fauna of the place bringing with you a mask and breathing tube.
In "snorkeling gear", you can immerse yourself in an authentic aquarium, living a truly unique and exciting experience. After this exciting "tete a tete" with the inhabitants of Mitigliano, get back on your boat with your heart and eyes full of joy and beauty and get ready for the last station!
The Bagni della Regina Giovanna: the magic of nature and the charm of history
And here we are ready to visit the infamous Bagni della Regina Giovanna, an amazing natural swimming pool set between the limestone cliff and the rocky beach of the Sorrento peninsula.
The place owes her name to Queen Giovanna I of Anjou, who loved the place so much that she made it the preferred setting for the pleasurable encounters he had with her numerous lovers. A screenplay worthy of Hollywood movies of the caliber of Paradise and Blue Lagoon!
The small bay is accessed by crossing a natural stone arch, a barrier that clearly delimits the Baths of Giovanna from the open sea. Here, too, you can dive with the appropriate equipment, to enjoy the wonderful seabed and the rich fish fauna.
To frame your refreshing dive, the oldest archaeological site in the area: the so-called Villa di Pollio Felice, a nobleman from Puteolan who lived in the first century after Christ. A wonderful testimony of ancient architecture, described in his Silvae by the Latin poet Stazio.
The Bagni della Regina Giovanna, where the embrace between nature and history becomes more alive and intense, are the worthy ending of your exciting Sorrento adventure.

The waters of Vico Equense conceal unexpected treasures, so much so that the area is considered a paradise for divers. Off the coast is the Banco di Santa Croce, a genuinely exceptional "underwater landscape" known to water sports enthusiasts worldwide.
As for beaches, they are waiting to be discovered. One of the most beautiful is called Tartaruga (turtle), with its clear waters, deep seabed and lava sand. Where is the turtle? It is easy to spot: a five-metre-high rock emerging from the sea. A panoramic path leads to Tordigliano-Chiosse beach, where there is an enchanting view of the Li Galli archipelago.
The beach in the hamlet of Seiano is close to Marina d'Aequa, a fishing village. The Spiaggia del Pezzolo even preserves the remains of an ancient Roman villa from the 2nd century AD. The rest is beyond words: experience it for yourself.More info on govicoequense.it❯
