Marcialonga 2022

Marcialonga: the awaited event is back

Category:Events,Excursions,Featured,Festivals,Places Tags : 

On December 26, 2022, the 42nd edition of the Marcialonga will be held in Massa Lubrense.

The Marcialonga is an amateur free paced race through the streets of Massa Lubrense, discovering the most evocative corners of the area. It is an event organized by the parish community on the occasion of Christmas, which attracts hundreds of participants every year.

More then a competition, it is actually a pleasant walk through the hamlets and natural beauties of the place. For the residents, taking part in it is a way to spend cheerful time in company, in the spirit of the holidays.

The first edition was held on December 26, 1978, involving the entire town. From then on the Marcialonga became a real recurrence. In 2019, 2508 people of all ages took part in it, breaking all records. In 2020 and last year, due to the covid-19 pandemic, the event could not take place.

How to participate

Like every year, the event begins on St. Stephen day at 2 p.m. You can register on the same day from 9 a.m. until 10 minutes before the start at the stands in Piazza Vescovado (Vescovado Square), where the start is also scheduled. The rules of participation will be specified at the time of registration by handing over the regulations.

The route

Three refreshment points are included, two along the way and one at the end. It is possible to taste typical Christmas sweets, such as roccocò, panettone or fried zeppole prepared by the organizers, as well as the inevitable sausage sandwich.

From the square, the walk continues towards Via Roma, Via Rivo a Casa, via IV Novembre and via Nastro d’Oro, before reaching the crossroads for Santa Maria, the first refreshment point. The walk resumes along via Caselle, via Annunziata, arriving at the square of Santa Maria, where a second stop is planned. The longest part of the route then begins from via Padre Rocco, following the rotabile Massa Turro, deviating for via Mortella, crossing via Rachione, G. Marconi square and viale Filangieri. The event ends in Piazza Vescovado, where there will be one last refreshment, usually based on brioche and hot chocolate, served by the staff.

The first 100 drawn numbers will receive prizes offered by the local commercial activities. At the end of the walk, celebrations for young and old will continue.

As in the last edition, the event will be completely plastic free: respecting the environment only biodegradable disposable material will be used.

  • Marcialonga, i dolci natalizi, 2019
  • Marcialonga 2019
  • Marcialonga 2011
  • Marcialonga 2014, partenza
  • Marcialonga 2019
  • Marcialonga 2018

Every year many people work behind the scenes, with passion and dedication, to provide moments of joy and lightheartedness. Among the organizers there are those who make the desserts or other gastronomic delights, those who take care of setting up the stands or taking the registrations, but many more are the activities that make the event a success, which would be impossible without everyone’s cooperation!

written by Miriam Russo

The territory of Massa Lubrense is characterized by unique and unmissable locations. The variety of the latter, in fact, makes it original and one of a kind. In this article, we select for you just some of the most instagrammable places in Massa Lubrense that you absolutely cannot miss.

“Heart” of Baia di Ieranto

The first of our most instagrammable places in Massa Lubrense is the “heart” of Baia di Ieranto. A place that seems shrouded in magic and legend. In fact, according to history, it was the place where Ulysses, returning to Ithaca, met the Sirens. In this enchanted scenery you will enjoy the crystal clear waters and magnificent beaches of the area.

The lighthouse Punta Campanella

Located in the protected marine area of the promontory of Punta Campanella, the lighthouse undoubtedly creates a suggestive and enchanted landscape. An atmosphere of fascination and mystery will emerge before your eyes, leaving you breathless. You should not miss it, especially at night, when the lighthouse seems to light up together with the stars.

Crapolla Fjord

Another surprising instagrammable place is the Crapolla Fjord. It is one of the most particular inlets of Massa Lubrense. Moreover, in addition to being of great interest for seaside tourism, it is rich in history.
The area is also easily reachable on foot starting from Torca, allowing you to take advantage of the magnificent trekking routes offered by the place.

Monte San Costanzo

It is a mountain with two peaks, the highest in Massa Lubrense, from which it is possible to have a 360-degree view of the Gulf of Naples and Salerno, up to the islands of Ischia and Procida. Furthermore, you will also find the characteristic white church dedicated to the homonymous saint, on the left top of the mountain — a suggestive place from several points of view that we recommend not to miss.

Cala di Mitigliano

The last and magical instagrammable place of Massa Lubrense is Cala di Mitigliano, an ideal place to enjoy the crystal clear sea and sensational scenery.

Trekking: 10 tips for beginners

Category:Blog,Excursions,Pro Loco,Travel Tags : 

by Angela della Ventura

Interview with Michele Palomba

Trekking is certainly one of the best sports you can practice in Massa Lubrense. It is not uncommon to find people that, although wishing to take on trekking, always postpone it, because they do not know where to start. This is exactly why we interviewed an expert in this field, Michele Palomba, who gave us 10 useful tips to help you enjoy this wonderful activity.

1. Things you should always carry

Contrary to popular belief, there is no need to carry many things, which are often bulky. You just need a few essentials, which can easily be stowed in a small backpack, as walking with both hands free will help improve balance and tackle steep trails. The essentials are:

  • a water bottle or canteen;
  • some snacks;
  • sunglasses;
  • cap or hat to protect yourself from sun rays:
  • change of dry clothes, in case you get wet due to bad weather or need to change after sweating too much (socks are utterly important);
  • warm outfit;
  • raincoat;
  • headlamp, which is particularly useful in wintertime, as the sun sets early;
  • fully charged phone;
  • small first aid kit;
  • pair of trekking poles.

2. Things to include in your first aid kit

kit pronto soccorso

First of all, it is very important to always carry any type of prescribed drug with you; if you have allergies, always include antihistamines. Never give anyone the medications you have been prescribed, especially if that person has never taken that type of medication before. This is always good practice, but it is especially important when hiking.
In the actual first aid kit, which should be stored in an airtight bag, you should include a small number of things, which can still help you treat any minor injuries you may suffer while trekking:

  • plasters of different sizes used to treat abrasions;
  • antiseptic, which must explicitly be of the type that can be used on damaged skin;
  • gauzes and medical tape;
  • Tweezers, which can help you to pull out splinters from wounds;

You may of course include other types of medical devices, but you should only do so if you’re qualified enough to use them.

3. Suitable clothing

A simple but very useful advice is to dress with layered clothing using clothes that aren’t particularly warm or heavy when worn on their own, but, at the same time, when worn layered can give you comfort while trekking.
Starting from the innermost layer, depending on season, you should either wear a t-shirt or a thermal long-sleeved shirt; continuing on, fleece clothing can always be useful to protect both from wind and unexpected cold in the shaded areas. Always depending on season, another layer can consist of either a duvet in winter or an anorak during spring or summer, which you can easily put on or take off as needed.
Speaking of fabrics, it is best to avoid denim and plush fabric, because they take a lot of time to dry out in case you get wet when crossing a brook or due to unexpected rain. Breathable fabrics, on the other hand, are highly recommended, being fresh, durable, with quick drying properties. They are suitable for any type of sport.

4. Suitable shoes

Good shoes are essential for any type of hiking, even though many underestimate their importance.
It is crucial to always wear shoes that are suitable for this kind of activity, even when walking on seemingly easy trails, because shoes will always help you walk better.
New shoes may feel hard at first, but their hardness is intentional, as it helps sustaining your body while walking; sneakers or other common types of shoes, on the other hand, are too weak and do not provide good balance, even if they might feel more comfortable at first.
Hiking shoes also feature a sculpted sole, which allows for good grip on any type of terrain.
An useful advice, especially for beginners, is to use high boots, even if they might seem useless or overly expensive; these boots are specifically designed to protect the wearer against injury, as they sustain your ankle better than low boots do, by wrapping perfectly around it.

5. How to pick a path to suit your needs

There are several ways to pick a path that will suit your needs: you can either rely on printed guides or on guides available on the internet. You can also consider asking someone who is more experienced, such as a friend, a qualified guide or the local tourist office. One should avoid relying on websites where any user can upload tracks, since you won’t be able to judge trail conditions and the amount of experience needed to take a given path. Another tip would be not to follow the crowd, avoiding to pick a path only because, according to others, it is easier or just because many people pick it.

6. How to prepare

Hiking in Massa Lubrense

Taking a basic trekking course can be really useful to become familiar with technical terms, to learn how to judge properly the type of terrain you will walk on and its elevation gain; this will in turn allow you to pick a path that, whille offering great landscapes, will still match your physical abilities. This is crucial, as it will guarantee that an otherwise wonderful experience doesn’t turn into something unpleasant.
Speaking of physical preparation, beginners can take walks to train their body to cross steep terrain, but those who cannot exercise daily could simply start using the stairs instead of the lift anytime they can.

7. How to reliably check the weather forecast

Weather is an higly discussed topic and not an easy one to cover. The plethora of smartphone apps are a good way to get an overview of the situation. On the other hand, always keep in mind that in the open air, and especially in the mountains, weather can and will change suddenly and unexpectedely. On mountain peaks it is highly likely for individual thunderstorms to occur, and this is impossible to predict.
Trekking in the rain isn’t necessarily unpleasant, though, even if it might seem scary at first; with all the necessary precautions it can be an unique and suggestive experience.

8. How to trek with children

Hiking in contact with nature is great for children too. In this case, as can be expected, one should exercise caution, especially with lively and curious children. A good tip is to prefer spring or summer time, when weather will usually be mild, but you should also pick easy, well shaded trails to avoid fatigue, injuries or heat strokes. You can turn hiking into a game, where children will feel like they are little explorers. This will surely make them prone to repeat the experience and, hopefully,  teach them to love nature and hiking

9. Where to find adventure companions

Hikes organised by qualified guides are the best way to begin if you’re alone, since you’re sure to receive good tips on choosing equipment and on picking paths. Hikes organised by local tourist offices are also very useful to get acquainted with other people experienced in trekking. Tourist hikes are often designed to provide knowledge of the area, or sometimes to explore an area: because of this they are usually easy to undertake, but exciting nonetheless.

10. Tips about blogs or hiking webpages

Blog

Michele’s webpage, “hikeandseek“, will help you to fully immerse in the world of hiking. Following local webpages based on the area you want to go for a hike in will also help: this includes the website of the municipality and that of the local tourist office. One can often find webpages specific to a certain mountain range or area: these can be relied upon to get updated information about trail conditions. Rockslides and areas with high vegetation are also usually reported.

So, as we have seen, trekking is a sport for everyone, young and old, experts or beginners, enjoyable and, above all, healthy.

Are you ready to go for a hike with us along Massa Lubrense’s best trails?

Ready for the Lemon Festival 2022

Category:Blog,Events,Excursions,Festivals,Food Tags : 

Walkings, tastings and shows to celebrate one of the symbols of local gastronomy.

In Massa Lubrense we are preparing to host the lemon festival “Limoni in festa”, two days of good cuisine and traditions promoted by the association Pro Loco Massa Lubrense with the patronage and the city’s contribution: the appointment is for Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of July, in Largo Vescovado. Now in its 46th edition, the event returns after two years of stop imposed by the pandemic.

Limoni in Festa 2022

The traditional “agropasseggiata” will open the program, on July 9 at 9 am. It is a walk on paths and alleys of the old town, among olive and lemon groves. In the evening, at 6:30 pm, the town center will come alive with the opening of the stands of crafts and typical products and the lemon tasting itinerary.

There will be shows: on Saturday at 9 pm the actor Gino Rivieccio will propose to the public his show ‘Da cosa nasce cosa’, while on Sunday at 9 pm the musical group ‘La Maschera’ will perform in the concert  ‘Sotto chi tene core’. “We couldn’t wait to organize our festival again – observes Anna Teresa Pappalardo, president of Pro Loco Massa Lubrense – I thank all those working for its realization with renewed enthusiasm, waiting to be all together in the square”. 

“The festival returns after two years of stop – emphasizes Antonino Esposito, managing director Agriculture of Massa Lubrense – with the aim of enhancing an extraordinary product such as the lemon of Massa Lubrense, the ‘femminiello’: oval, with a juicy straw-yellow pulp, a concentrate of vitamin C and mineral salts, with a skin rich in essential oils.”

The lemon festival is part of the frame of ‘Omaggio alla bellezza’, the cycle of summer events promoted by the city administration of Massa Lubrense: “With this review – concludes Giovanna Staiano, Councillor for Tourism Massa Lubrense – we have given rise to several initiatives for tourists and residents, which lead to the discovery and enhancement of our extraordinary land.”

Hiking for children: “Merende Itineranti” by Lucia Sessa

Category:Blog,Excursions,Featured,Travel Tags : 

written by Miriam Russo

Hiking is a very common activity nowadays. It is based on walks along paths surrounded by nature – usually on mountains. The aim is to explore and discover the territory, so as to see and live it even closer.
Not only is this kind of excursion widespread in Massa Lubrense area, but it is also expanded thanks to projects and events for adults and children. Especially the latter can get in touch with this exciting activity and, at the same time, get to know the territory. For that matter, one of the luckiest projects is “Merende Itineranti“, conceived by Lucia Sessa for the Pro Loco Massa Lubrense, to whom we asked some questions to find out more about hiking for children.

What is hiking and why is it the ideal activity for everyone

Hiking is generally the activity of walking, which differs from trekking in terms of times and duration: while trekking (which is also very popular in Massa Lubrense) includes excursions of several days, hiking takes place in one day only. Furthermore, hiking has its main focus on the movement, therefore it is mostly experienced as a sporting activity. Extending it to children, it allows them too to walk and move and to discover the territory at the same time.
It is ideal for everyone because – thanks to its short duration – it allows the little ones too to move without making too much effort. Moreover, as Lucia Sessa has highlighted, it helps to regain good breathing, which has great and positive consequences on both physical and psychological walkers’ condition.

Children group of Merende Itineranti

Hiking rules for kids

Although it is an activity that makes one free, hiking has its own rules too. They are based mostly on respect towards the surrounding nature and other people. For this reason, children are told to be silent during the walks and/or to stop at some points. This allows them to respect the common pace and to take time to breathe and observe what is around them, too. Another important rule is to follow and listen to the guide who describes interesting details along the road and points out any dangers.

Kids from the Merende Itineranti project walking and discovering

“Merende Itineranti” project

It’s a project born with the aim to create activities specifically for children during summertime. From the beginning, there was a double purpose: physical activity on one hand and discovery of the territory on the other. Over time, thanks to the positive feedback gained, Lucia Sessa and her team were able to diversify their excursion plans. They chose even longer paths which led them to farmhouses where kids were able to be in touch with animals and even learn about the local dairy production. At the very basis of the project, there is always the aim to get children involved, in fact, they carry out different tasks. In some experiences, for example, they have been able to discover particular locations and to see closely how the old crafts are still done nowadays.
Moreover, when it is time to have a snack, children are offered local biological products, with the purpose of taking care of nutrition too, which is another fundamental rule of hiking.

Hiking for children: learning and discovery activities in agritourisms provided by the Merende Itineranti project

First reactions and approaches

The first reaction to the project was undoubtedly positive and proactive: the children saw in the “Merende” an opportunity for sharing and a way to be together at the end of school. At the same time, their parents too found pleasure in learning about characteristics and features of the place that – in the habit of everyday life – they didn’t even notice. Over time, this has led to a growing will of participation which has made the project successful.

Activities and games played by the kids of the Merende Itineranti project

Age ranges for hiking for children

Hiking really is an activity within everyone’s reach. In fact, the children who participate to the “Merende Itineranti” project are aged from 5 years upwards. In cases of more difficult itineraries, the age group can change, but basically, it is an activity suitable for all ages. There is a careful selection of the paths based on the ideal of maximum inclusiveness. For this reason, the routes proposed are accessible also to participants with disabilities, giving them the opportunity to join the project and benefit from both the hiking and the discovery of the territory. In fact, hiking in the area is practiced by involving all the fractions of Massa Lubrense. Therefore, excursions are organized so as to reach different areas of the place in order to create more collectivity and learning opportunities.

Hiking for children: group of adults and kids walking

All these characteristics – and the way Lucia Sessa and the “Merende Itineranti” project carried out the hiking for children activity – make it something unique that everyone, adults and children, should try. Our invitation and advice are to experience what it really means to immerse yourself in nature, to discover and know more about the territory of Massa Lubrense as well as yourself.

1 day travel itinerary in Massa Lubrense

Category:Blog,Excursions,Travel Tags : 

di Miriam Russo

Il territorio di Massa Lubrense è tutto da scoprire: scorci, panorami, storia e bellezza si uniscono creando uno spettacolo mozzafiato. In questo articolo proponiamo per voi un itinerario di viaggio da svolgere nell’arco di una giornata, più agevolmente se in auto, alla scoperta delle meraviglie della zona.

Massa Centro
Il nostro viaggio parte dal capoluogo del Comune di Massa Lubrense, Massa Centro. Non solo l’ufficio d’informazione vi darà tutte le indicazioni utili per visitare la zona, ma già qui sarà possibile iniziare ad ammirare parte di ciò che il territorio ha da offrire. Nella piazza principale, ovvero Largo Vescovado, infatti, ha sede una delle molteplici chiese e cappelle di Massa: la Ex Cattedrale di Santa Maria delle Grazie. A ciò si aggiunge l’irrinunciabile punto panoramico della medesima zona, “il Pennino”, che offre una vista suggestiva sulle isole di Capri e Ischia.

Prima tappa dell'itinerario di viaggio di un giorno a Massa Lubrense: Ex Cattedrale di Santa Maria delle Grazie a Massa Centro
Punto panoramico "il Pennino" presso Massa Centro

Marina della Lobra
A poco più di un chilometro dal nostro punto di partenza, si trova il caratteristico e suggestivo borgo marinaro di Marina della Lobra. Si tratta di un villaggio di pescatori che deve il suo nome alla Chiesa della Madonna della Lobra che lo sormonta. Ciò che salterà immediatamente all’occhio sono senza dubbio le variopinte abitazioni che lo caratterizzano e la gradinata che conduce direttamente al mare. Il luogo ideale per una prima pausa nel corso del nostro itinerario, per godere di una sensazionale vista sul Mediterraneo.

Abitato variopinto e piccole barche nel borgo marinaro di Marina della Lobra

Termini
Dopo essere risaliti a Massa Centro, il nostro itinerario di viaggio a Massa Lubrense ci conduce verso Termini. Passando per Marciano, sarà già possibile godere dei punti panoramici che si trovano lungo la strada. Le apposite aree di sosta, infatti, consentono di lanciare uno sguardo sull’isola di Capri, che risulta via via più vicina.
Ma le meraviglie non finiscono qui: giunti a Termini, raggiungendo il Monte di San Costanzo, sarà possibile bearsi del panorama che il punto più alto della penisola sorrentina offre. Lasciata l’auto nella pineta poco più giù della cima del monte, una breve passeggiata porta alla Cappella di San Costanzo dove ad attendervi ci sarà un panorama a 360 gradi sui golfi di Napoli e Salerno.

Punto panoramico sul Monte di San Costanzo

Marina del Cantone
Scesi da Termini, la tappa che consigliamo a seguire è Marina del Cantone, con le sue spiagge e la sua tradizione gastronomica. Al termine di questa prima fase mattutina del nostro viaggio, infatti, questo è il punto ideale per trovare ristoro. Sarà senz’altro piacevole concedersi un bagno tra le sue acque cristalline o un gustoso pranzo a base delle specialità del luogo, tra cui gli irrinunciabili spaghetti alla Nerano.

Una delle spiagge cristalline di Marina del Cantone

Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi
Ultima tappa, ma non per importanza, del nostro suggestivo itinerario è Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi. Il suo nome ci suggerisce qualcosa sulla sua posizione: è localizzata, infatti, proprio sulla collina al centro tra il golfo di Napoli e quello di Salerno. Da lì, un altro impressionante panorama, in località Deserto, vi lascerà a bocca aperta: il meraviglioso tramonto visibile dal Monastero di San Paolo al Deserto chiuderà questo viaggio al limite tra esperienza fisica e sensoriale.

Scorcio sulla chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie presso Sant'Agata sui due Golfi, ultima tappa consigliata dell'itinerario di viaggio a Massa Lubrense

Così si conclude il nostro itinerario di viaggio di un giorno a Massa Lubrense. Vi consigliamo, inoltre, di lasciarvi guidare e aiutare dalla nostra mappa interattiva per scoprire sempre di più sulle meraviglie di questo luogo.

Hiking in Massa Lubrense

Hiking: 10 reasons to choose Massa Lubrense

Category:Blog,Excursions,Featured,Pro Loco Tags : 

Over 100 kilometers of marked trails, incredibly colorful landscapes, hidden coves and ancient alleys among the villages are some of the reasons why Massa Lubrense is the perfect place to walk.

Here are 10 reasons why you absolutely must visit it if you love hiking in nature.

Lace up your shoes and start your adventure!

A trail network over 100 kilometers long

The network allows you to choose short routes limited to a small area or combine multiple trails to cover longer distances. The indications about the difference in height and the type of soil help to understand the level of difficulty of each itinerary: there are all types, suitable for the more experienced or even for children.

Mild temperatures

Southern Italy is known for its sunshine and good weather, which allows for year-round hiking. Spring and autumn are the best seasons. In summer, temperatures are milder in the evening or early in the morning. In winter, it is best to avoid days when rain makes the ground slippery.

Breathtaking landscapes are guaranteed

Massa Lubrense has the privilege of an enviable geographical position, offering the opportunity to enjoy spectacular panoramic views in natural environments. You can discover them during a day of hiking on the promontory of Punta Campanella, along the Sirenuse Trail with a view of the two gulfs of Naples and Salerno, descending the 700 steps that lead to the Crapolla Fiord, reaching the top of Monte San Costanzo

A protected nature

The entire stretch of coast of Massa Lubrense and the sea in front of it, are protected by the Punta Campanella Marine Protected Area. In addition to the recognition of the Blue Flag for its beaches, the Municipality has received for years that of the Spighe Verdi, for the enhancement of the rural heritage, with a view to more sustainable development.

Ancient mule tracks and “middle ways” converted into paths

What once were the connecting roads between the villages, or the paths traveled by mules to transport the crops from the fields to the inhabited centers, are now part of the hiking path network and allow us to walk in nature, away from the noise of the road.

Hiking, history and archeology

Combining nature, culture and history in Massa Lubrense is very simple. The Museo Diffuso project suggests thematic itineraries to combine the landscape with the traces of history it preserves: Roman remains, Angevin and Aragonese towers, ancient churches and chapels…

Guided walks

Walks in Massa Lubrense are organized all year round: guided itineraries, outings in nature and activities related to local culture and gastronomy. For the little ones, the Merende Itineranti are an opportunity to rediscover the link with the land and the local culture.

Certified local guides

Relying on environmental hiking guides is the best way to deepen the knowledge of the territory in its naturalistic, historical and artistic aspects. Many local guides propose hiking itineraries suitable for all levels and circumstances and are available to organize tailor-made walks.

Meeting new people

By participating in an event or a group excursion you meet people with the same passion for hiking! People with whom to share a day outdoors, exchange stories of their experiences on the road, create unforgettable memories of a pleasant walk in nature.

Wide offer of accommodation and rural tourism

To enjoy a few days of hiking in Massa Lubrense, you can easily find accommodation suitable for every need. In inhabited centers or in more isolated places, the offer ranges from hotels to b&bs, campsites and holiday homes. Furthermore, the local restaurants and farmhouses offer pleasant refreshment points during or at the end of the walks.

Omaggio alla bellezza in Massa Lubrense

Category:Blog,Events,Excursions,Featured,Pro Loco Tags : 

From June to October in Massa Lubrense the program Omaggio alla bellezza is held, a project that involves the territory with multiple free events.

Concerts in nature, themed walks, tastings, yoga and pilates classes, activities for children and much more. Promoted by the Municipality of Massa Lubrense in collaboration with local associations, the exhibition offers those who live or spend a few days in Massa Lubrense the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful area with activities that enhance its culture, history and natural beauty.

Open-air musical events return to enchant us with the fifth edition of Natura in concerto: musical performances in places with a mythical charm.

The cycle of guided walking tours proposed by the Pro Loco Massa Lubrense is part of Omaggio alla bellezza: the Passeggiate d’estate are excursions with environmental guides, with tasting of local products in farms or agritourisms.

Alla ricerca della valle perduta nella Terra delle Sirene” is the title of the proposals of the Pro Loco Due Golfi and the Massa Lubrense branch of the Archeoclub: four itineraries inspired by the lives of Ignazio Chiaiese, Torquato Tasso, Norman Douglas, Teofilo and Gianbattista Folengo.

AGAT Massa Lubrense also offers a rich calendar of excursions in the area: “Alla scoperta dei borghi” emphasizes its historic centers, monuments and religious buildings.

The program also includes activities organized by the Punta Campanella Marine Protected Area: open days to visit the park’s visitor center, canoe and snorkelling excursions to get to know our coast and sea.

For the little ones, the much appreciated Merende itineranti continue: walks for children with outdoor theater, workshops and organic snacks. There is no shortage of amusing magic shows in the squares and playgrounds of Massa Lubrense.

Throughout the summer it is also possible to take part in yoga and pilates classes outdoors: the best way to seek your own well-being in the newfound connection with the environment that surrounds us.
