A rainbow scattering of dinky boats in the harbour and a cutesy town centre are the bread and butter of Massa Lubrense holidays.

Best of Italy

Open countryside, a town that looks like a puzzle of hamlets, and a coast peppered with private coves – Massa Lubrense’s got the lot. All the best bits of Italy’s beautiful south are crammed into this place, from the diddy town centre to the platters of seafood dished up in the harbourside restaurants.

Welcome to walking country

Pack your walking boots – because Massa Lubrense’s a bit of a legend when it comes to hiking in the south of Italy. There are more than 100 kilometres of walking track squiggling out into the peaceful Italian countryside. Stay glued to the coast, and you’ll be rewarded with views of the lofty gulfs of Naples and Salerno.

Sightseeing in Sorrento

You can zip over to Sorrento in 15 minutes by car. This uber-popular town‘s the star of the show on this part of the Italian coast. Its postcode comes with pink and yellow townhouses, a shabby chic town centre, and all-in-one views of Mount Vesuvius and an island-dotted bay.
