Excursion Description

Excursion Description:

 

” I Bagni della Regina Giovanna” is the original name of a spectacular natural swimming pool, enclosed between the rocky beach and the limestone cliffs of Sorrento.

 

Following the path that leads to the Punta del Capo di Sorrento you will reach the ruins of a large roman villa built more than 2000 years ago. According to the tradition, this villa was the house of Pollio Felice, a Roman citizen and historian. From this incredible archaeological site which rests on rocks few meters above the sea you can admire the spectacular Gulf of Naples. Behind the “Villa Pollio Felice”, a characteristic natural stone arch allows access to the cove, the Bagni della Regina Giovanna (baths of Queen Giovanna), separating the small lagoon from the sea. This marine oasis takes his name from Giovanna d’Angiò, the legendary queen of Naples, who preferred the emerald waters for her hidden and protected position. According to the tradition, this natural pool was the setting for the meetings of the sovereign with her young lovers.

The excursion starts and ends in the same point.

 

Please note that:

The excursion is not suitable for those suffering from heart problems or knees problems. We recommend to be prepared with sportswear and trekking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses and a bottle of water.
