Santa Maria del Castello is a town strategically located between Positano and the Sorrentine Peninsula. During the 9th century it was not only a crossing point for goods but also a defending point against the Duchy of Amalfi. It is said that it was a refuge for those who wanted to escape epidemics that occurred during the 17th century.

Starting from Positano, after about two hours we arrive in this beautiful mountain village, overlooking the Mediterranean waters so dear to Greeks, Romans and modern tourists. The country still retains the charm of yesteryear, with houses surrounded by large cultivated areas and a small church that, with the sound of its bells, reminds the hours to farmers at work.

The walking has the total duration of 5 hours and includes lunch. A local guide will show you the typical plants of the Mediterranean area through the trails that were once used to connect the sea and mountains. Why not spend a wonderful day and relax, surrounded by nature and far from city chaos?
On request we also organize a longer trekking, running from Positano and crosses, after a stop in Santa Maria del Castello, the Sorrento Peninsula.

Every day, by reservation only, at 09:00 (9 am). Duration: 5 hours
