Massa Lubrense territory is full of surprises: panoramic views, history and beauty combine creating a breathtaking experience. In this article, we recommend you a travel itinerary for one day to discover the wonders of this place and its surroundings (more easily by car).
Our journey starts from the Municipality of Massa Lubrense capital, Massa Centro. Not only will the tourist office give you all the useful information to visit the place, but here you will be able to start admiring a small part of what this place has to offer. In fact, in the main square, or Largo Vescovado, you will find one of the many churches and chapels of Massa Lubrense: the Former Cathedral Santa Maria delle Grazie. In addition, in the same place, there is the unmissable panoramic point, “il Pennino” which offers a suggestive view of the Capri and Ischia islands.
Marina della Lobra
The characteristic and suggestive seaside village of Marina della Lobra is just a little farther than a kilometer from our starting point. It is a fishermen’s village that owes its name to the Church of Madonna della Lobra which surmounts it. What will immediately catch your attention are undoubtedly the colorful houses of the place and the stairway that leads directly to the sea. It is the ideal place for the first break on our journey, to enjoy a sensational view of the Mediterranean sea.
After having returned to Massa Centro, our travel itinerary in Massa Lubrense leads us towards Termini. Walking across Marciano, you will already be able to enjoy the panoramic points along the road. In fact, the specific rest areas on the way will allow you to take a look at the island of Capri, which gradually gets closer.
But the wonders do not end here: once in Termini, reaching the Monte San Costanzo, it will be possible to enjoy the panorama that the highest point of the Sorrento peninsula offers. After having left the car in the pine forest just below the top of the mountain, a short walk will lead you to the Church of San Costanzo. Here, a 360-degree view of the gulfs of Naples and Salerno will await you.
Marina del Cantone
Once off Termini, the next stop we recommend you to follow is Marina del Cantone, with its beaches and gastronomic tradition. In fact, at the end of this first-morning phase of our journey, this is the ideal place to find refreshment and relax. It will doubtless be amazing to swim in its crystal clear water or to enjoy a tasty lunch based on local specialties, such as the unmissable “spaghetti alla Nerano”.
Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi
Last but not least stop of our suggestive itinerary is Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi. Its name tells us something more about its position. In fact, it is located right on the central hill between Napoli and Sorrento’s Gulfs. From there, another impressive view, in the area called Deserto, will leave you speechless: the wonderful sunset enjoyable from the Monastery of San Paolo in Deserto will conclude this travel at the limit between physical and sensory experience.
This is how our travel itinerary in Massa Lubrense ends. We also recommend you let yourself be guided by our interactive map. This will help you discover more and more about the wonders of this place.
