Meta

Overview

Among the sea and mountains, a stone’s throw from Naples

Meta is one of the first towns you come across when embarking on an exploration of the Sorrento Peninsula. This enchanting village overlooking the Gulf of Naples, loomed over by the imposing Vesuvius, rises 111 metres above sea level. It is divided between a historic centre rich in monuments and places of interest and the rocky coastline. 

For pebble beaches, you can relax along the seashore in the Alimuri area, while for a more traditional experience with rows of beach umbrellas and fine sand, you can move a little further on to the Resegone area. 

In the small historic centre of Meta, you can stroll among breath-taking views and monuments, including the Basilica of Santa Maria del Lauro and the Church of the Santissima Annunziata, with its bell tower and a chapel built entirely from tuff. There are plenty of Baroque-style residences, including Villa Liguori, Palazzo Maresca and Villa Elisa.

Just a stone’s throw from the centre, in the hamlet of Alberi, you can immerse yourself in nature, enjoying shaded hikes and picnics, as well as mountain bike rides along nature trails and well-marked routes.
