A stroll through the fishing villages of Sorrento Coast

 

Sorrento and its surroundings hide the most precious pearls in less known places, surprisingly beautiful. The ancient seaside villages of the Sorrento Coast, for example, are a combination of traditions and wonderful sceneries, surrounded by an inexplicable magic.

Strolling through the narrow streets, silently enter these microcosms that live in their universe, far from the frenzy and noise. Peek into a quiet and slow routine, made of atavistic gestures and wide-open smiles on faces smelling salt.

Abandon yourself to a relaxed lifestyle and authentic values; take you the right time to savour the atmosphere of the fishing villages: it is worth it.

 

Marina della Lobra and Marina di Puolo

Marina della Lobra and Marina di Puolo are two of the littles and most enchanting villages in the Sorrento Coast. Both seem to come out of a painting, a colourful and lively watercolour. Mainly fishermen inhabit the coloured houses with irregular shape, so different and splendid in contrasts. Here many families keep on for generations a profession that is above all an infinite passion. The boats rest lazy at the pier, ready to leave at the first favourable tide.

If you love the sea and are looking for an original experience, treat yourself to an excursion of fishing tourism: you can observe closely an ancient and fascinating practice, repeated with the same gestures of centuries ago. Still on board, you can taste the true taste of the sea in the fresh catch of the day.

It is a hardly describable emotion... try it!

 

The village of Nerano 

Nerano and its famous bay are a necessary step in a tour of the Sorrento Coast: the fishing village is one of the most characteristics, both for the natural beauties and for the exquisite fish dishes.

Suggestive coves and rocky ridges run on the sea, embellished with green spots of Mediterranean nature. The seabed boasts unsuspected treasures, the beaches are a combination of crystal water and white pebbles. In the bay of Nerano, moreover, the sun shines longer than in the other beaches of Sorrento, offering more sunrays and all the warmth of the foreshore at sunset ... a unique experience.

Another reason to discover Nerano and its sea is the local cuisine: typical restaurants flourish at every corner, invading the air with appetizing smells. The specialties are made with the catch of the day and first fruits from Campania, accompanied with the best white wine. We suggest you to taste spaghetti alla Nerano, invented right here: based on zucchini and cheese, they are an absolute delicacy.

 

Marina Grande di Sorrento

The ancient fishing village closest to us is Marina Grande, standing out for its huge beach, the location of the famous film "Pane, amore e .." with the Italian stars Sofia Loren and Vittorio De Sica.

The magic you breathe in this stretch of coast envelops everything: the houses sleeping one against the other, the face of women, smiling also with the cloudy sky, our limoncello, aromatic like no other. Every day seems the same of the others for fishermen, or perhaps it is only in appearance: the sea sometimes reserves miraculous catches or unexpected surprises.

Wandering around the village you perceive a sensation of perfect harmony, which reassures the minds of everyone, both locals and tourists. Next to the beach clubs and the delicious fish restaurants, traces of an ancient origin remain. One of the door of Marina Grande, allowing access to the city of Sorrento, dates back to Roman times but retains an almost unchanged charm.
