I climbed the Phoenician Steps which ended here. I wandered the grounds a bit. And thankfully there were places to sit and cool off from climbing all the stairs to get there. Beautiful white-washed walls and views of sea.

Took a brief tour of Villa San Michele. It was nice and had amazing views. The gardens were very nice. The area made for some very nice photography. And it doesn't take too much time so that was a bonus

Don't make it "a plus" on your list! And don't rate it! Just as you can't rate the man's soul and feelings. After the crowds of Rome and marketed old Sorrento streets (what a shame!), the villa, the gardens, the views makes an incredible impression....More
