Even if this town is the smallest of the six town councils along the Sorrento coast, it is none the less fascinating. It is situated between the coastal area and the small mountains: Angri, Cappuccini, San Giovanni and Paolo, Colli di Fontanelle, Trasaella and Maiano. In September every year, near Colli di Fontanelle, one of the oldest festivals of typical local products is held and should not to be missed. Along the coast at Marinella, you may admire a fantastic panorama of the Gulf of Sorrento. The oldest citrus grove on the coast, Pizzo citrus grove, can be found a little distance from Marinella. The citrus grove is ten thousand square metres and is legally bound as an archelological and landscape protected area. Authorisation for small groups to visit the grove may be obtained from the owners.
There are hundreds of gardens in the area, and it is not by case that during the XIX century there was an enormous increase in the citrus production as well as in the sea commerce. These enormous commercial exchanges favoured the construction of the Consulate of the United States of America in 1894 which was situated in Via San Sergio. In the historical centre you may find a wax factory which is more than one hundred years old. An unusual area where you may go and admire the estro and craftsmen’s capacity in the production of wax objects.
