visiting the villa limona
is there a bus from the centre of Sorrento to the villa limona on the capo di Sorrento and if so what number is it and where exactly does it leave from?
Re: visiting the villa limona
The Villa Limona is next to the Hotel Dania. You can see from the hotel website:
that you could actually walk there from sorrento centre (it's about 2km), but the buses to Sant'Agata Via Massa pass by.
You'll find Sorrento bus timetables here:
All leave from outside the Circumvesuviana station, although there are obviously other stops within the town.
I'm not sure which Sant'Agata bus is best for you (possibly both) but you'll find the Sorrento tourist information people very helpful (and your hotel staff willprobably know as well).
beach in Sorrento
I would like to go to a beach in Sorrento...I know that they are not really sandy beaches, but can anyone recommend a nice, clean, and relaxing beach that I can go to. Has anyone been to MaraMeo - I've been there for dinner when I went 2 years ago and I know its a beach establishment during the day.
RE: beach in Sorrento
Although there are no large stretches of golden sands, there are some pleasant beaches nearby,
The local orange bus Line A will take you to two beaches at Meta. For Alimuri beach get off first stop after the tunnel and walk down the steps . If you miss it, its not far to walk back from the terminus I think the beach before this is better. According to a local woman, this is called il porto or simply Meta beach. Get off before the tunnel – I think the stop is Stella Maris. There are lots of sunbeds here but also a public area of sandy beach. It’s a bit of a climb back to the bus stop
There is also a marina at Piano di Sorrento with a public beach at each end. This is also sandy. Take the train to Piano station. From the station exit turn right then right again along via San Michele. This leads to the cliff overlooking the sea. The road from here winds down but is not too steep.
There is a small area of public baach near Marina Piccola, just below the steps and lift from the gardens of Villa Communale. Some may think it scruffy. It certainly gets crowded but I enjoyed a couple of hours there and the water was lovely. (late June) There is another beach at Marina Grande but I havent tried that one yet.
Line A in the other direction terminates at Capo, from where you can walk to a couple of beaches. Queen Jane's Baths is down the road where the bus backs round, past a modern church on the left then turn left at a T and follow the path down. I have not been right down to sea level here but stayed at the ruins of Villa Pollio, which is a nice place to picnic and watch the boats sailing to Capri.
From Capo you can walk to Puolo, a sandy bay with bars etc. which is popular with the locals at weekends.
Walk towards Massa (away from Sorrento) for 200 yards then go down past Hotel Dania. Follow the path till it meets the road then turn right.
My favorite beach is the small shingle beach at Marina del Cantone. Take the SITA bus to Nerano-Cantone from the train station. It takes an hour but its a lovely ride and the bus terminates next to the beach. The shingle gets very hot.There are bars and restaurants here. Best to avoid weekends.
