Where we are
There is a side of Sorrento which is almost unknown, far from the beaten path and bustle of the Sorrento historic center, where most tourists spend their visit.
This is the Sorrento of the hilltops, overlooking the sea; of fragrant gardens of lemons and oranges trees, of slow-placed days and nights where you can savor a relaxing holiday.
It is the Sorrento of La Terrazza Family House, the Vacation Rental tucked in the lush hillsides of Sant’Agnello, in Maiano village; just 2 kilometers far from Sorrento main square Piazza Tasso.
By car, driving along the motorway A 2 Rome-Naples for those who come from the north; or the A 16 Bari-Naples for those who come from the south, you get onto the A3. Exiting at Castellammare of Stabia, you arrive to the SS Sorrentine 145 – that travelling alongside the sea – permits you to reach Sorrento.
The SS 145 offers an extraordinary spectacle, and as you pass by the towns of Seiano, Meta, Piano di Sorrento and Sant’Agnello.

By public transportation, there are various possibilities: if you arrive in Naples with the trains of the State railway (FS); the Central Station of Garibaldi Square is connected by underground passageways to the lines of the Circumvesuviana, which link directly Naples and Sorrento.
