MEET & GREET WITH THE STAFF AND THE REST OF THE DAY AT LEISURE
PATH OF THE PRINCE:
The Path of the Prince is an interesting hike that starts from the old town of Salerno to reach the Arech's Castle walking up along its hill called Bonadies.
This a pathway that melts the local medieval history with the surrounding natural space.
During the Middle Age, Salerno has been the Capital of an important Lombard Kingdom. The city was the headquarters of the first Medical School for that period and considered the embrion of modern Universities. Upon reaching the Castle, you will have a great view above the city and the beginning of the Amalfi Coast.

ISLAND OF LOVE: PATH OF PIZZOLUNGO
Transfer by private boat
Close to the terrace of Tragara is the start of a walk called Pizzolungo, following the coast south of Mount Tuoro. At its beginning you can find a small detour to the Faraglioni. The cliffs are of incomparable beauty, and the pieces of roman pavement in opus spicatum bring back to our minds the roman presence on the island. A bit further, the solitary Monacone reef. During the walk also the houses are marvellous, Cà Tuoro, Il Canile, La Casa Solitaria. Less famous but also typical is Villa Monacone, built around 1880 and home for years of Ciro Spadaro, who restructured it in the local architecture style. After a luxuriant holm oaks bush the path continues to the grotto of Matermania, which opens at about 180 m. on the level of the sea. It was formed by the erosion of waters, and is long 30 meters and 20 meters wide. After the finding of a painted roman marble with the image of Mitra some believed there could have been a temple inside the grotto dedicated the worship of Mitra. Others, instead think the temple was dedicated to Cibale the Magna Mater goodness of fertility from which the dialectal toponym Matromagna. During the times of the empires of Augustus and Tiberius it used to be a nimpheo, a place dedicated to refreshment and luxurious feasts. A few more stairs to go in the green, and you get to the Natural Arch. Two hundred meters on sea level, it is what remained of an underground deep cavity, and it became as we see today after the natural course of nature reshaped it: a breathtaking natural bridge.The way back to the centre passes though the higher area of Capri, via Matermania, Via Croce, and finally the Piazzetta.
