Sentiero delle Sirenuse

The Sirenuse path is a trail of the Sorrentine penisula which grants a constant view of the "Li Galli" islets, called Sirenuse in the old times, whose myth indicates them as the home of the sirens who tested Ulysses in the Odyssey.
Even though it's quite long, the trail is good for anyone as the walk is not too hard. It takes place between S. Agata and Colli Fontanelle with a circular route. The standard route starts from S.Agata and leads towards the village of Monticello (Waypoint 1) beyond which you will take the first dirt path. The walk, in the shade of olive groves and various shrubs, will lead to the Roverelle grove and finally to an up way towards Pizzitiello (Waypoint 2); here you can overlook at the Gulf of Salerno, the Faraglioni of Capri and of course Li Galli.
Going on, the path will be mainly downhill until the SS145 road, where the return, mainly uphill, to S. Agata will be indicated by the trail signs.
The trail can be explored during any period of the year but the rich flowering makes spring the perfect season.


The path, Via Torricella, starts from Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi, at the intersection of the main roads Via Nastro Azzurro and Via Reola in an urbanized zone
