Spring walks in Massa Lubrense 2023

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

For this spring, the Pro Loco Massa Lubrense is offering four guided tours in some of the most fascinating places in the area.

Four Sundays between May and June to travel and discover Massa Lubrense: we do it on foot and with total respect for the places, to get to know them better and touch their essence. Paths and routes, sometimes even off the beaten track, are in fact real mines of treasures of history, traditions and nature.

Here is the program of the Spring Walks:

Sunday 14th May
Sirenuse trail
Departure: 9 am from the square of Sant’Agata sui due golfi
Duration: about 4 hours

The Sirenuse Trail is a scenic circular route that allows you to cross the southern slope of the Sorrento Peninsula enjoying enchanting views: from the Amalfi Coast to the Faraglioni of Capri.

Sunday 28th May
Ieranto Bay

Departure: 9:00 from the square of Nerano
Duration: about 4 hours

The Bay of Ieranto is a rocky inlet between Punta Campanella and Punta Penna. It is the pearl of the Punta Campanella Marine Protected Area and can only be reached on foot or by canoe.

Sunday 11th June
Punta Campanella

Departure: 9:00 from the square of Termini
Duration: about 4 hours

A pleasant excursion on foot is the only way to reach Punta Campanella, along a path of about an hour on the northern slope of the Promontorium Minervae, which separates the Gulf of Naples from the Gulf of Salerno.

Domenica 11 giugno
Crapolla Cove

Departure: 9:00 from the square of Sant’Agata sui due golfi
Duration: about 4 hours

The Crapolla Cove is one of the most evocative inlets on the coast of Massa Lubrense: in addition to being of great naturalistic interest, it preserves visible traces of a past rich in history.

The M.A.R.E. project

Category:Blog Tags : 

by Rosario Sisto

The territory of Massa Lubrense boasts countless natural wonders. Among these, the aquatic environment that surround its banks is especially important and it is safeguarded by the Marine Protected Area Punta Campanella. The M.AR.E. project was indeed started by the Marine Area with the aim of protecting the aquatic ecosystem of these territories.

This project aims to engage a number of young volunteers from all over the world in activities designed not only to help safeguard the local aquatic ecosystems, but also to help spread the knowledge of aquatic wonders and how keep them safe.

For this article we had the opportunity to interview one of this year’s volunteers: Pedro Ribeiro.

Let’s start with an introduction: what’s your name? How old are you? What country are you from?

My name is Pedro Ribeiro, I’m 26 and Portuguese. I was born in a small town in the inland of Portugal and I studied biology, including marine biology, at the University of Aveiro.

Tell us: how did you decide to take part in the M.A.R.E. project?

After getting my master degree last year, I looked for a job in Portugal, but I wasn’t able to find anything that suited me.

One day I discovered the M.A.R.E. project on Facebook and decided to take part in it. Above all, I wish to bring the knowledge I have gained through the project with me to Portugal.

Moreover, during my university studies I was unable to take part in an Erasmus project, so this experience allowed me to “fill that void”, in a sense.

Specific studies or preparations are required to participate in the M.A.R.E. project?

Actually, of the 10 volunteers currently participating in the project only 7 are experts in marine biology, while the other 3 have studied completely different subjects.

Despite this, as much as it may not be strictly necessary to possess specific knowledge to become a volunteer, it is still important for at least a part of the group to have studied marine biology, so as to support the others in the more demanding activities.

What are the main activities carried out by you volunteers?

project M.A.R.E.

During the first month we attend an Italian language course to facilitate communication.

The actual activities start during the summer, often with the assistance of other organizations.

The main activities take place in the Bay of Ieranto with the goal of protecting the biodiversity of the area, meaning its hundreds of aquatic species, both plant and animal. When boats happen to enter the bay – where it is not allowed to cruise or dock if your boat is engine-powered – we approach them by canoe to explain to the people aboard the park regulations and its goals, and so we invite them to go elsewhere.

At the same time we put effort into teaching people the importance of protecting this ecosystem, and we often organize kayak guided tours and snorkeling. In this way people can personally immerse themselves in the aquatic wonders of the territory and get to know it better.

Volunteers are also involved in the protection of sea turtles: we follow their footprints in the sand along the beaches, searching for potential nests. Once we find one, we protect it to make sure that the eggs will be able to hatch safely. In the meantime, we take this opportunity to explain the details of the whole process to the people who are on the beach.

Are there any difficulties in protecting a foreign territory?

Personally not. Adapting to this cultural context was fairly easy for me since, in my experience, Italy and Portugal are not very different from a socio-cultural point of view.

How does collaboration between young people from different countries and cultures influence the activities?

M.A.R.E. project

Some of the M.A.R.E. project activities also aim to create strong bonds between us, in order to make us feel united despite our cultural differences.

Among the more interesting and memorable activities are the “cultural evenings”: each of us is given a whole evening during which we can tell the others about our country and our culture. The goal of these meetings is to make us all feel closer. We have organized many similar events: Spanish, Greek, Croatian, and many others.


For giving us so much of his time and so much information, we sincerely thank Pedro Ribeiro.

We hope to have aroused interest in those who have read this article. We invite you to visit the territories of the Punta Campanella Marine Protected Area, so that you can personally admire these wonders and fully understand the importance of safeguarding them!

Winter in Massa Lubrense

Category:Blog,Travel Tags : 

Although winter is the least favourite season for tourists to visit seaside locations, low temperatures still allow you to enjoy the beauty of the area.

Massa Lubrense is chosen as a destination all year round, with temperatures that rarely drop below 10°C (50°F) degrees during the day. In the winter time, sunny days alternate with cloudy days, with possible rain and wind.

With the right clothes to face the low temperatures, avoiding rainy days, walking the trails remains one of the favourite activities.

Winter walks

If you’re going on vacation in Massa Lubrense in winter, there is no need to book in advance, the prices are for sure lower and the influx of tourists is at a minimum, so you can fully enjoy the area.

During the winter time, activities related to the maritime tourism close, only to reopen in spring. Bus services decrease due to the low tourist influx, favouring daytime rather then the evening timetables. More information can be found here.

Once the Christmas holidays are over, some cafés and restaurants close for holidays, usually for about a month between January and February.

Massa Lubrense in January

Average temperature: 10°C (50°F)

Average sea temperature: 15°C (59°F)

January days in Massa Lubrense are very short, with sunsets between 4:45 pm and 5:15 pm. Snow is a rare occurrence, very much appreciated by the inhabitants for its exceptionality. Rains are more frequent, but sunny days are not lacking.

In good weather, it is pleasant to walk through the streets and squares, where you can stop at pastry shops or restaurants to taste typical dishes. Massa Lubrense is famous for the production of olive oil, cheese, a large variety of products based on the local lemons, and much more.

Massa Lubrense in February

Average temperature: 11°C (52°F)

Average sea temperature: 14°C (57°F)

In February the weather is still cold, but sunny days are not lacking. You can go for long walks on the beach, lose yourself in the evocatice scenery of the sea in winter, good for you mind and body.

It is possible to do religious tourism, visiting the many churches and chapels, or simply walk trhough the hamlets. You can certainly enjoy the landscape in the coldest season of the year, in abscence of crowds and traffic. Alternatively you can visit museum, archaeological sites such as Pompeii or Ercolano, in the surroundings of Massa Lubrense.

If the weather does not help, you can opt for an afternoon of shopping by choosing the local activities of handicrafts.

Massa Lubrense in March

Benefiting from more hours of sunshine, outdoor activities will certainly be more enjoyable. You can visit parks with children, such as the Parco delle Sirene in Massa Centro. While walking, you can stop at the most suggestive viewpoints, from which to observe the beauty of the area from above.

If you love the gastronomic products of the area, you can visit one of the many farms to discover the secrets of production.

So, despite the weather, there are still many activities to do!

5 days in Massa Lubrense: every day a different adventure

Category:Blog,Travel Tags : 

di Angela della Ventura

Per chi ha bisogno di staccare dalla routine quotidiana, ma anche per coloro che cercano avventura e panorami mozzafiato, Massa Lubrense è il luogo ideale, grazie alle sue spiagge dall’acqua cristallina e i percorsi di trekking. Di seguito, un itinerario per trascorrere 5 giorni in questo piccolo angolo di paradiso e tranquillità.

Giorno 1: Massa centro e dintorni

5 giorni a Massa Lubrense - Giorno 1

Massa Lubrense centro

Arrivati a Massa Lubrense, il modo migliore per poter iniziare la vacanza è partire con l’esplorare il centro. Si parte da Largo Vescovado, piazza principale della città e sede del Municipio. Al suo estremo è possibile affacciarsi da Belvedere del Pennino, che offre una suggestiva vista panoramica su Ischia e Capri. A pochi metri da qui troviamo “Il Cerriglio”, ex palazzo De Martino e antica casa gentilizia, che presenta un caratteristico viale di pilastri in tufo e busti marmorei, in fondo al quale c’è un bellissimo ninfeo. Proseguendo per via Palma incontriamo “Il Quartiere”, ex collegio gesuita del 1600, e accanto ad esso “Il Torrione”, architettura militare di inizio XVII secolo.

Marina della Lobra

Dopo aver esplorato il centro della città, ci si può spostare a Marina della Lobra, antico borgo marinaro sovrastato dalla chiesa da cui prende il nome. È raggiungibile a piedi in 15 minuti, imboccando via Colombo. Il centro abitato è caratterizzato da case variopinte, ancora abitate perlopiù da pescatori, e si sviluppa intorno a una gradinata che porta fino al mare. In realtà non ci sono vere e proprie spiagge, ma è possibile bagnarsi dalla scogliera o usare il solarium di via Chiaia. Inoltre, sono presenti molti ristoranti e bar, con vista sul mare. Il porto è dominato da Torre Toledo, appartenente al gruppo delle torri di avvistamento saracene costruite dagli Aragonesi lungo la costa.

Monte San Costanzo

Altro luogo da visitare è Monte San Costanzo, la collina più alta di Massa Lubrense, raggiungibile facilmente dalla frazione di Termini. Le cime sono due:
– a sinistra è possibile ammirare la chiesetta di San Costanzo, chiusa quasi sempre, tranne che il 14 maggio quando viene portata in processione la statua del santo dalla piazza di Termini alla chiesetta per la Santa Messa.
– a destra, invece, è presente una stazione radio per il controllo del traffico aereo.
Tra le due cime vi è una pineta, ottima zona d’ombra per chi giunge a piedi e parcheggio per chi, invece, arriva in auto o moto. Il panorama è sublime, e comprende tutto il golfo di Napoli.

Marina del Cantone

Ancora, per le sue spiagge di ciottoli e l’acqua limpida, tappa fondamentale è Marina del Cantone. Qui è possibile godersi un bagno in tranquillità, sia in lidi privati che in spiagge libere. Sull’estremità orientale della spiaggia, da visitare è la chiesetta di S. Antonio da Padova, costruita nel 1646. Anche a Marina del Cantone ristoranti e bar non mancano e qui è possibile gustare i piatti tipici della cucina campana. Dalla spiaggia, percorrendo un sentiero panoramico di circa un chilometro, si arriva alla spiaggia di Recommone, un luogo paradisiaco.

Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi

Ultima sosta per il primo giorno di viaggio è la località di Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi, che prende il nome dalla sua posizione, tra il golfo di Napoli e quello di Salerno. La sua fama, come località turistica, è diffusa fin dall’Ottocento grazie soprattutto alla posizione panoramica, ma anche al clima mite e all’aria salubre. Da visitare qui è la chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie, costruita nel 1745, a croce latina e con un altare seicentesco. Oltre questo, custodisce la statua di Sant’Agata e molti dipinti del XVI secolo, anche recentemente restaurati. Altro edificio spettacolare è il Monastero del Deserto, il più panoramico della penisola sorrentina e costruito dai Carmelitani scalzi nel 1679.

Giorno 2: trekking lungo il sentiero di Athena

5 giorni a Massa Lubrense - Giorno 2

Un’attività perfetta per il territorio di Massa Lubrense è il trekking.
Il sentiero di Athena attraversa un’area di grande importanza storica: dall’aspetto selvaggio, offre panorami mozzafiato. Da piazza Croce, a Termini, si prende via Campanella e dopo 200 metri, al bivio, si prosegue a destra per via Minerva, mulattiera greco-romana. Attraversando il versante nord, la vegetazione si dirada e si intravede Capri, che appare così vicina, che sembra di poterla toccare. Proseguendo si iniziano a vedere la torre e il faro di Punta Campanella. Giunti a Punta Campanella si va avanti verso Monte San Costanzo, seguendo il segnavia bianco-rosso del C.A.I. (Club Alpino Italiano), che indica l’Alta Via dei Monti Lattari. Dopo aver attraversato il versante sud, la vista si apre sulla Baia di Ieranto e in seguito si giunge alla pineta di Monte San Costanzo.
Per tornare indietro c’è un sentiero breve, ma ripido e sconnesso, è quindi consigliabile ritornare per la strada principale.

Giorno 3: giornata in spiaggia e visita in agriturismo

5 giorni a Massa Lubrense - Giorno 3

Una giornata in spiaggia per rilassarsi è l’ideale dopo una passata ad avventurarsi per i sentieri. Abbiamo visto che una delle spiagge più belle è quella di Recommone, piccola e riservata, ma altrettanto magica e tranquilla. Da raggiungere a piedi o in barca, è situata tra Marina del Cantone e il fiordo di Crapolla ed è lunga 65 metri. Le sue acque sono limpide e la spiaggia è perlopiù formata da ciottoli chiari e piccoli. Questa piccola insenatura, a livello del mare, presenta cavità di cui la più grande è la Grotta di Recommone, anche chiamata “dei Pescatori”, perché anticamente offriva una zona d’ombra in cui poter ancorare.
Dopo la giornata in spiaggia è possibile cenare in uno degli agriturismi del luogo, con alcuni dei piatti tipici come gli spaghetti alla Nerano, i ravioli alla caprese e il pesce spada alla brace.

Giorno 4: giro in barca all’isola di Capri

5 giorni a Massa Lubrense - Giorno 4

Per rendere il soggiorno indimenticabile il consiglio è di trascorrere una giornata in barca. L’isola di Capri è protagonista nei panorami da Massa Lubrense ed è così vicina da poterci arrivare facilmente con un’escursione giornaliera.
Lungo la prima parte del percorso in barca è possibile apprezzare la costa della Penisola Sorrentina, interamente tutelata dall’Area Marina Protetta Punta Campanella. Prima di fermarsi al porto e sbarcare sull’isola di Capri, è d’obbligo fare un giro della sua costa: si potranno ammirare i famosi Faraglioni, le affascinanti grotte, le spiagge nascoste. Giunti al porto, la funicolare conduce direttamente alla Piazzetta, cuore dell’isola da cui partire in esplorazione.

Giorno 5: visita agli scavi archeologici di Pompei ed Ercolano

5 giorni a Massa Lubrense - Giorno 5

Per concludere l’itinerario di 5 giorni, è possibile fare una visita agli scavi archeologici di Pompei ed Ercolano, tra i loro edifici e ritrovamenti più rappresentativi. Partendo da Massa Lubrense, è possibile giungere a Pompei in auto, oppure con autobus e treno Circumvesuviana Sorrento-Napoli. Si consiglia di iniziare la visita al mattino presto, per evitare la calca e la calura. Ci sono diversi itinerari di diversa durata, dalle due fino alle sette ore. Dopo aver visitato Pompei, ci si può recare ad Ercolano, dove, oltre alle classiche visite degli scavi archeologici, è possibile visitare anche il MAV (Museo Archeologico Virtuale).

Questi sono soltanto alcuni dei luoghi da esplorare, ma perfetti per poter godere al meglio del nostro mare, della nostra terra e anche dei luoghi limitrofi. Se non dovessero bastare questi 5 giorni per visitare tutto ciò che è stato nominato, vi aspetteremo per una seconda visita, che sarà sempre unica e irripetibile.

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.

Autumn in Massa Lubrense

Category:Blog,Travel Tags : 

Autumn is one of the best times to visit Massa Lubrense: the weather is still warm, the crowds are few and the prices are lower.

Massa Lubrense is chosen as a holiday destination all year round, with temperatures ranging from 10°C (50°F) to about 30° C (85°F). In autumn, temperatures are mild, making it even more pleasant to visit this area.

The largest number of visitors is registered in the summer months, so it is highly recommended to book at least two months in advance if you intend to spend your summer holidays here.

In less demanded months such as October and November, prices tend to drop, the weather is cooler and there are fewer tourists. Sunny days are the majority and the sea is still warm for swimming. Autumn travelers can experience an all-round vacation in Massa Lubrense with less traffic, good weather and fun cultural events.

Massa Lubrense in October

Average temperature: 22°C (71°F)

Average sea temperature: 23°C (73°F)

Temperatures are mild in October. The weather is perfect for exploring the historical and archaeological sites, visiting the towns and, of course, walking among the breathtaking natural beauties of Massa Lubrense.

The sea temperature is still warm in October, it is almost always sunny and the beaches are not crowded at all. Shops and businesses are all still open despite the lower turnout and, of course, great deals can be found this season.

Massa Lubrense in November

Average temperature: 18°C (64°F)

Average sea temperature: 20°C (68°F)

As winter approaches, temperatures begin to drop in November, but the climate remains mild. Massa Lubrense is still a pleasant tourist destination, but with some rain.

The month of November is perfect for visiting museums and archaeological sites, such as Pompeii and Herculaneum. Walking along the paths of Massa Lubrense is more pleasant with the cool and clear air allowing you to better appreciate the postcard views.

Prices are significantly lower in November, allowing you to spend less and maybe do more! Some businesses are closed, however, the absence of crowds and the reduced traffic make the streets and squares quieter, where you can savor the authenticity of life in Massa Lubrense.

Pilates at the Annunziata Castle

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

Pilates at the castle is a cycle of 7 outdoor meetings, at sunset, designed to promote conscious breathing through fluid and coordinated movements.

The free pilates lessons are held by the physiotherapist Carla Marciano, in the splendid location of the Aragonese Castle of the Annunziata, one of the jewels of the municipal heritage of Massa Lubrense.


Info and reservations:

Pro Loco Massa Lubrense (9:30 – 13:00)
Viale Filangieri, 11
+390815339021
+393510862663 (WhatsApp)


Exercising in the open area is the best way to feel good not only with yourself but also with the nature that surrounds us.

Outdoors, it is easier to put aside any negative thoughts, concentrating completely on movement and breathing, with great health benefits: the body acquires elasticity, fluidity and physical tonicity, while the mind better counteracts states of anxiety and stress.

Pilates is suitable for both those who simply need movement and those who have particular pathologies. In these basic lessons, suitable for everyone, the goal is to learn to know and listen to your body, with the use of breathing and simple exercises.

Organized by the Pro Loco Massa Lubrense, with the patronage and contribution of the Municipality of Massa Lubrense – Tourism Department. It is part of the “Omaggio alla bellezza” program.
