We spent 4 lovely days in Sant’Agnello which is on the Sorrento Peninsula. We arrived by taking the train from Termini in Rome to Sorrento and then caught a taxi to our B&B in Sant’Agnello. There is also a local bus running from Sorrento to Sant’Agnello.


Sant’Agnello is a commune in the province of Naples in the region of Campania and is about 25 km southeast of Naples


One of the many delightful shops

Sant’Agnello is a quieter (and possibly more economic) alternative to staying in the centre of Sorrento.


In this enchanting village there are restaurants and bars around Piazza Sant’Agnello and near the coast, which has great views. Our first night here we walked to a restaurant on the coast overlooking the bay.  The meal was delicious and simple and the view amazing.

La Marinello Beach

It is certainly a delightful town for a quiet and peaceful holiday offering a vast range of accommodations.

It is easy walking in the historical centre with its beautiful gardens, panoramic views, old churches and of course its lemon groves.

There is a local bus which we caught a few times both day and night from Sant’Agnello to Sorrento.

We enjoyed daily swims at a local beach which we walked to – La Marinello beach.

There is also a train station linking Sant’Agnello to Sorrento.

Sant’Agnello is a really lovely place to stay particularly if you would like a break from the past pace and the crowds.
