Palazzo Belmonte is a superb choice as a base for exploration. From Castellabate you can enjoy numerous half and full day trips - the magnificent Doric Temples of Paestum are just 30 minutes away, and the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Oplontis are within easy reach by car. (The Palazzo can arrange a chauffeur if required.)
The legendary Amalfi Coast, with towns such as Vietri sul Mare, famous for its ceramics, Ravello with its beautiful Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, and the delightful Positano provide an enjoyable day trip, as does the magnificent 14th Century Charter House of Padula (monastery) which lies inland. The island of Capri, as well as Positano and Amalfi, can be reached by hydrofoil, private boat or helicopter.
A visit to Naples should not be missed, with its rich history, many churches, monuments, museums and the renowned Capodimonte Royal Palace and Museum. Closer to the Palazzo, the medieval hilltop village of Castellabate is a delight to explore.
Helicopter trips can be arranged to enjoy the most spectacular views of the Coast and places of interest further afield.
