Escape to southern Italy and enjoy a sun-drenched getaway in Villammare. The resort is fringed by a silver-pebble beach and backed by rolling green hills. Palm trees and pastel-coloured buildings add to the postcard-perfect atmosphere.
Swim, sunbathe and sip cocktails on Villammare Beach. The beach is dotted with “lido” beach clubs where you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas. Top up your tan, take a dip in the crystalline Tyrrhenian Sea and cool down with drinks like Aperol spritz and limoncello on ice. A palm-lined promenade stretches along the coast and is a great place to stroll and enjoy a scoop of gelato. Local restaurants will lure you in with dishes like “polpo alla luciana” stewed octopus and “scialatielli all'Amalfitana” seafood pasta.
Stretch your legs and enjoy stunning views along the Apprezzami l'Asino di Sapri. The cliffside hiking trail wraps around the Gulf of Policastro and takes you past rocky beaches, bays and grottoes. Stop to explore hidden sea caves and centuries-old defensive towers along the way.
