Jutting out from the Sorrentine Peninsula into the Gulf of Naples is a rocky promontory known as the Punta del Capo, or the Capo di Sorrento. It’s located a little more than one mile west of central Sorrento.

One of the main attractions on the Punta del Capo is the ruin of a Roman villa, which is believed to have once belonged to Pollio Felice. There are ruins of three villas nearby, all dating to the 1st-3rd centuries AD. Felice was a supporter of both Virgil and Horace.

Nearby, you’ll find the Bagni della Regina Giovanna, a swimming area next to a flat, rocky area used for sunbathing, all of which are next to the remains of another Roman villa. This spot gets its name from Queen Giovanna of Anjou, who used to visit regularly in the 14th century to bathe.

Capo di Sorrento has a few shops and places to eat, but this area is much quieter than central Sorrento. It’s possible to walk from Sorrento, though the path along the Via Capo is uphill when heading out along the Punta del Capo. Boat tours from Sorrento to explore the Roman ruins and the Bagni della Regina Giovanna are quite popular.
