This territory characterised by Mediterranean bush, typical cultivation and coasts just on the sea, constitutes one of the main tourist resources of Sorrento Peninsula.
One the activities promoted in this view has been the localisation and delimitation of a series of foot-paths. In 1990, in the sole commune of Massa Lubrense were localised 22 foot itineraries for an overall development of an area of about 110 km far from the carriage road and by the built-up area.
Along these paths, clearly indicated, it is possible to rediscover enchanted places rich in historical memories, panoramic points and ancient hamlets, the whole through lemon-orchards, olive-groves, oak-woods, sunny coasts and a luxuriant and evergreen nature, typical of the whole Sorrento Peninsula.
