Points of Interest
- Roman Villas
Already during the 1st century BC Roman villas began to be built by the Roman elite in the most panoramic points of the coast: as a matter of fact, the Roman elite had chosen already in the previous century the Gulf of Naples as a place of idleness and holiday. The impressiveness and the luxury of these aristocratic residences of Sorrento is documented by some finds worthy of the capital.
- Athena's Sanctuary
The cultural horizon in which the cult of Athena in Punta della Campanella must be read is a horizon "integrating earth and water, coast and open sea in relationship with the ideal needs of navigation". The cult can "legitimately be considered addressed to the patronage of the maritime access of the Gulf since ancient times".
- The Coastal Towers
The watching towers characterizing all the coasts of the Kingdom of Naples were built according to the will of the viceroy Don Parafan de Ribera and mainly accomplished during the vicekingdom of Don Pedro from Toledo
