East Of Sorrento

More developed and less appealing than the coast west of Sorrento, the area to the east of town is not totally without interest. There's the district's longest sandy beach, Spiaggia di Alimuri, at Meta di Sorrento and, 12km beyond that, the Roman villas at Castellammare di Stabia (see the boxed text, pi57). Risingabove Castellammare and accessible by cable car (adult/19-26yr/under 18yr return trip €6.71/3.10/2.58; 8 minutes, about 30 daily Apr-Oct) from the town's Circumvesuviana train station is Monte Faito (1055m), one of the highest peaks in the Lattari mountains. Covered in thick beech forests, the summit offers some lovely walking and sensational views.
