The best view over Sorrento, Vesuvio, Capri stretching over to the gulf of Amalfi and it's incredibly free of charge. You may buy some nuns' home made jam or honey to feel more in peace with yourself and the beauty of the place!

It was a nice walk up here although not for those with walking difficulties. Beautiful views once you get there.

The walk up from the village of Sant' Agata is well worth it. The views are wonderful. This is also a stop on the tour on the little train if you don't want to walk up the hill.

After a long slow climb up from Sant Agata you reach the Benedictine convent which has limited opening hours for people to o climb up to the roof to gain panoramic views over the two bays. Well worth it.

You can just walk up there and enjoy the view and the grounds but if you want enjoy the view from the roof top, the best thing is to go on the Little Blue Train
