From Sorrento to the Gulf of Naples, the Royal Palace of Caserta, the Amalfi Coast and back to Sorrento
Sorrento, the heart of the event and departure and arrival point on race days. Built on the cliff that separates it from the characteristic harbor, its historic center is a maze of narrow streets bustling with cafés, shops and typical artisans.
The walk between Piazza Tasso, the Cathedral, the church of San Francesco with its renowned cloister, Corso Italia, the citrus groves and the seafront promenade facing the Bay of Naples offered participants a pleasant immersion in the town overlooking the sea.
The Gulf of Naples is universally recognized as one of the most beautiful corners of the world: historic and architectural treasures, wonders of antiquity and more recent history as well as fascinating natural scenery attract tourists from all over the world every year.
With Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia and Procida on the horizon, the Gulf has three large inlets: the small bay of Pozzuoli, the port of Naples and the bay of Castellammare.
There are two key entry passages: Bocca Grande, between Ischia and Capri, and Bocca Piccola, between Capri and Punta Campanella.
Designed in the 18th century by Luigi Vanvitelli at the behest of Charles III of Bourbon, the Royal Palace of Caserta is the triumph of Italian Baroque.
The beauty of the interiors, which include the King's and Queen's Apartments, the Palatine Library, the Picture Gallery and the Historical Archives, among others. The magnificence of the Park, divided into an Italian-style garden and an English garden, covers an area of 120 hectares and is almost three kilometers long, undoubtedly recalling the opulence of the Palace of Versailles.
The Amalfi Coast, characterized by an unrivalled gastronomic tradition, small towns overlooking the sea and a priceless historical heritage, stretches from Positano to Vietri sul Mare.
Characterized by high cliffs, enchanting coves and small bays, terraces of citrus fruits, vines, olive groves and artisan workshops, it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List as a perfect example of a Mediterranean landscape with a setting of great cultural and natural value.
