The peninsula and Sorrento Myth art culture, nature and gastronomy
The land of Syrens
SORRENTO THE PEARL OF THE GRAND TOUR
The Sorrento peninsula is the southern offshoot of the Bay of Naples and the coastline town that gives it its name “Sorrento” has origins in history and myth. For the ancients, who devoted immortal poems to it, its sea is the abode of the legendary Syrens whose song bewitched Ulisses; the roman aristocrats dotted the ancient Sorrento with luxurious leisure villas where to stay during the summer season. The region was called Campania Felix, for its beauty, voluptuous yet serene charm, beneficial air and its marvelous fruits, gift of the land made fertile by Vesuvius.
And the charm of Sorrento never waned…
In this picturesque frame stands the Hotel Belair on a stretch of coast once called Belvedere, a place favored and beloved by landscape artists of the nineteenth century for its incomparable view.
