Sirenuse Trail

Sirenuse Trail

The Sirenuse Trail takes its name from the three islands of Li Galli, from here the sirens tempted Ulysses with their charming voice.

The Sirenuse Trail is a scenic loop trail that takes you through the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula enjoying beautiful views: from the Amalfi Coast to the Faraglioni of Capri.

You can make this trek all year round, the trail is not difficult and is easily recognizable thanks to the blue symbol of the three islands that identifies it. Winding along terracings, valleys and cliffs, it is for the most part on dirt road: you will cross orchards and olive groves, maquis, garrigue, oak, chestnut, pinewood; it has a wide variety of shrubs and flowers and an exceptional bloom in spring.

As any circular route, you can do it in the direction you prefer. The trail also lends itself to many variations, could be shortened, or integrated with other routes.

The “classical” route of the Sirenuse Trail starts from via Pontone in Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi. Once you have crossed the pinewood Le Tore, walk in direction of Colli di Fontanelle. When you reach the promontory of Pizzetiello, atop the cliffs of Punta Sant’Elia, you can enjoy the closest and most spectacular view of Li Galli, formerly known as Sirenuse, the view extends to the left to the Amalfi Coast and to the right to Capri with its Faraglioni.

The itinerary continues towards Torca: through olive groves and scrubland, you come to the inhabited area of via Monticello, which ends in the square of Torca. From here take via Nula and then via Pigna to go back to Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi.
