Overview of the tour

Discover the Untouched Charm of the Sorrentine Peninsula with Us!

We start our journey from the picturesque square of Termini, where it feels like Capri is within arm's reach. From there, we venture towards the tip of La Campanella, the last unspoiled piece of land on the Sorrento Peninsula, the grand finale of the Lattari Mountains. It's a beautiful place, rich in charm and ancient history. During the excursion, we'll  arrive at the  temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, a true spectacle of beauty and ancient history.

But this excursion is not just a scenic walk; it's also a journey through time, where the legends of mythical Sirens and the adventures of Ulysses come to life amid the olive trees and Mediterranean scrub.

After a short break, we will continue our ascent along the ridge, following a trail with a moderate incline, until we reach the picturesque Chapel of San Costanzo. Along the way, we'll be surrounded by the typical flora of the Mediterranean scrub, especially the asphodel, a plant associated with the funeral rituals of ancient Greece.

Reaching the summit of Monte San Costanzo, we'll enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the Amalfi Coast, the Gulf of Salerno, the Lattari Mountains, Sant'Angelo a tre pizzi, Mount Vesuvius, and the islands of Ischia and Procida. Simply breathtaking!

At the end of the hike, we'll return to Termini square, completing the circle of this extraordinary adventure.

For experienced hikers only

Possibility for hikers who are in Sorrento to leave directly from there, walk to Termini and then continue the walk as described in the excursion; this will allow us not to use any means of transport and spend a "completely green day".

Shorter and less demanding variant

Excursion along the "Vuallariello" path to reach Monte San Costanzo. Shorter and simpler variant along the North-West face of San Costanzo, with less height difference, yet as many open panoramic views of the two gulfs.

Customize your trip!  
  • We organize the lunch for you

    • option 1: buying some typical Campania products from the producer such as: cheeses, mozzarella, tomatoes, etc. .. and then preparing a tasty snack all together right on Monte San Costanzo, where the view will be the real protagonist of our relaxing moment

    • option 2: at a 0 km farm

  • We organize transfers to/ from our tour locations
