The long-awaited spring, which chases away the cold and rain of winter, can only make Massa Lubrense a perfect setting for all the activities that can be done in this beautiful season.

Finally the temperatures rise and the sun begins to warm us. If before they ranged from 6°C to 12°C, now they range from 10°C to 25°C.

The most daring can already start taking their first baths when the sun and temperatures allow it. The beautiful beaches of Massa Lubrense will not be crowded at all!

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 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. The 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.
