Holidays to Sant’Agnello are for those who want a slice of Italian authenticity on their break, rather than the tourist experience offered by some resorts. A rustic, clifftop town, Sant’Agnello is rich with Italian history, with churches dating back to the Renaissance. Days are easy and lazy here: do as the locals do, and kick off your day with a strong espresso in the bustling, main piazza. Make plans over a plate of pasta, or take yourself off for a scenic walk in the hills that surround the town. There are plenty of shops for those who like a little retail therapy, and they tend to be a lot easier on the pocket than those in nearby Sorrento!
If you’re looking to do some sunbathing on your Sant’Agnello holidays, there’s a little lift to take you down to the black sands of Marinella Beach. Alternatively, take the local train and see other famous sights, such as Herculaneum or, for those who want some serious nightlife, the lights and music of Sorrento.
Things to do
Holidays to Sant’Agnello can be exactly what you want them to be! If you want a leisurely break and to soak up something of the local culture then spend your time in the piazzas, sipping espressos and watching the world go by. If you need to stretch your legs, take a saunter around the streets. Keep a lookout for great photo opportunities, like the adorable 5th century church, decorated in yellow and white.
If you want to change things up a bit, you’ll find that Marinella Beach offers a wide range of water sports, from windsurfing to mellow canoe trips along the coast. For stunning views across the lake, head to one of the stylish cliffside restaurants and tuck into handmade pasta and fresh seafood. For a taste of the region’s spectacular history, hop on the train to see the archaeological remains at Pompeii or Herculaneum.
July and August offer the warmest temperatures. The soothing sea breeze stops it from getting too hot.
Naples International Airport is just over an hour’s drive from the resort.
