Basilica di Santa Croce

Reviewed By lesy882 - Ostuni, Italy

Take a walk round the port town of Torre del Greco. Quite steep in places, but an insight into the history of the area. Magnificent palaces, some in good repair, some not, but worth the effort. Good shopping, too, but closed round lunch-time till late afternoon, so get up early. The Churches close too. Look out for the Cameo workshops - amazing work.
We loved the coffee in and around Naples.

Porto di Torre del Greco

Reviewed By Julian P - Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

My wife and I stayed in Torre Del Greco for a week and although we had some excellent views from our hotel, this review is about the city itself. Unfortunately we found it to be neglected and dirty in many parts. It is clear that the problems with the Italian economy have really hit hard here. Many shops and businesses are closed and several of the traffic lights had stopped working but not been repaired. This made it even more hazardous to drive in the city. We were told by locals that many of the people who lived here have been forced to move north in order to find work and this has contributed considerably to the decline of Torre Del Greco.
It is very convenient for exploring the Amalfi coast and Naples but don't come here to enjoy the architecture or surroundings.

Villa delle Ginestre

Reviewed By Rachelle G

When you visit this small villa where Giacomo Leopardi has lived, you understand where he took his inspiration from: the villa is located in a very quiet surrounding with beautiful views on the sea and the Vesuvius with the lovely 'ginestre'. The villa is well maintained and shows some of the furnitures that could have been there in the period of Leopardi's stay. The location is not very easy to reach, but offers a small parking lot.

Valle dell'Avventura

Reviewed By Gerardo T

Sono stato qui con amici per pura curiosità dopo aver visto delle pubblicità.
Il parco è molto ben attrezzato e prevede percorsi per i bambini che per gli adulti. Divertimento, adrenalina e forza.. impossibile non entrare nel vivo ed immedesimarsi in uno stuntman!
Bellissimo, da provare assolutamente!

Chiesa di Santa Maria del Principio

Reviewed By Liliya P - Moscow, Russia

В этой церкви собирается весь городок- всегда. На праздники, крестины, похороны, свадьбы. Эта кьеза- центр и душа этого городка. По воскресеньям все приходят помолиться и пообщаться. Кьеза чудесная, её отлично видно из порта и звуки колокола слышны с берега

Valle dell'Orso

Ai confini del Parco Nazionale del Vesuvio sorge Valle dell'Orso, immersa nel verde delle pinete che caratterizzano quest'area, incastonata nella suggestiva cornice che si estende tra le pendici del vulcano partenopeo e un tratto di mare segnato all'orizzonte dall'incantevole isola di Capri. Piscine, acquascivoli, spuzzi d'acqua e puro divertimento per momenti di sana allegria.

Lido La Scala

Reviewed By Regina P - Laatzen, Niedersachsen, Germany

Westlich vom Hafen liegt nach 5 Min. Fußweg in einer kleinen Bucht der Strand. Der Eintritt kostet 2,-€, Liege 3€ und Schirm 3,50€. Also für italienische Verhältnisse günstig. Dafür werden Umkleiden, Toiletten und eine kleine Strandbar geboten.
Es ist alles super sauber, bewacht und alles zu einem angenehmen Preis. Daher war der Strand auch von Einheimischen sehr gut besucht.
Sehr zu empfehlen.

Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie

Reviewed By Regina P - Laatzen, Niedersachsen, Germany

Die ursprüngliche Kirche und das Kloster stammen von 1608-10, die beim Ausbruch 1794 zerstört wurden.
Die oberen Etagen wurden zunächst von den Franziskanern als Bettelmönche weiter genutzt, ab 1825 wurde es zum Waisenhaus mit Bildungsstätte. Nach einer erneuten Eruption 1861 wurde hier der städtische Kindergarten eingerichtet. Im Kreuzgang sind Fresken aus dem Leben von Franz v. Assisi erhalten.
Die Kirche wurde „angehoben“, indem die Fenster der ersten Etage zur Haustür umgestaltet wurden. Auf Geheiß des Rektors Don John Davis wurden 1930 Raphaels Abbildungen mit Episoden aus dem Leben der Jungfrau, Evangelisten und Engeln mit wunderschönen Fresken bereichert. Ebenso wurden der Stuck und die Dekorationen restauriert. 1948 wurde die Kirche in eine Pfarrei überführt.
Im Garten befinden sich die Grabstätten der Mönche.
