Walking in the Natural Marine Reserve of Punta Campanella to reach the beach of Jeranto. A stunning view on Capri.
- Sorrentine Peninsula -

For all lovers of the sea the ideal is to walk in the Natural Marine Reserve of Punta Campanella and reach the beach of Jeranto from which you will enjoy a stunning view of Punta Campanella itself and the famous Faraglioni, symbol of Capri. The area is a protected natural reserve and certainly one of the most beautiful Italian coasts with a luxuriant vegetation and a rich underwater life. The whole journey takes place in a circle, and it is particularly scenic, leading through stunning points of lush Mediterranean vegetation full of carob, mastic, but also typical terraces of olive trees. The difficulty of the trail is the not high, even if the way back can occur a little harder.

We start from the square of Termini, a small village of Massa Lubrense, and we walk along an ancient Roman road of which some remains are still visible, through stairs and back streets until the church of Nerano. Here begins the real path that leads us straight to the beach of Jeranto from which we will o admire the Faraglioni of Capri in the distance, but from the beginning of the trail there is a great view of the coast, the Saracen towers and the small islands of Li Galli. From the beach we will continue until we reach the extreme tip of the Sorrentine Peninsula, where we can see the remains of the tower of "Punta Campanella" of the fourteenth century. Here stood the ancient temple of Athena - Minerva, where over the centuries have been built for religious or military needs, temples, defense works and beautiful villas of which today, however, nothing remains. From the tower you can get through a staircase to the famous and beautiful cave of the Sirens. At this point you can already return to Termini or continue up to Monte San Costanzo at an altitude of 500 m approx. to admire the Bay of Jeranto, the Amalfi Coast and the Gulf of Salerno on the one hand, and the Gulf of Naples and the Vesuvius on the other, and for a brief stop at the Chapel of San Costanzo before turning back and end the trekking tour.
