Alternative itinerary to 13 to get to the centre of Massa Lubrense; branches 14 for Monticchio and 15 for Sant’Agata (via Acquacarbone) lead off this route.
Set off from Piazza Veniero and, having crossed the square, go down a few wide steps to the entrance of the Chiesa dell’Annunziata. Continue along Via Fuoro, then straight on across the road past the entrance to the Ulysses car park along Via Trav. Capo. At the end of the lane, you will find some steps coming out onto the busy main road Via Capo. Here turn right and after about 50 metres cross the road using the pedestrian crossing before following Via Capodimonte where the climb starts. Just before the second hairpin bend, take the shortcut up some steps and turn round to admire the view of the Bay of Naples with Marina Grande below. Continue going uphill, taking note of the shortcuts up steps. After a steep, virtually straight stretch of about 200 metres, keep on ahead (to the right of the shrine) until you come to the main road which you have to cross in order to enter Via Priora opposite. Be very careful crossing this road which is on a bend, choosing a point where you can see the traffic coming from both directions).
Continue along Via Priora and after 450 metres you will walk past two roadside shrines marking the boundary between Sorrento and Massa Lubrense. You will then pass a lane on the left that goes up to Via Nastro Verde and 450 metres further on you will come to crossroads. Go straight ahead along Via Bagnulo. A few metres after walking under the arch of a house, take the first turning right that, many bends later, will bring you to the main Massa - Sant'Agata road. Be careful crossing and continue straight along Via Vecchia into the centre of Massa Lubrense.
From the port: Proceed uphill along via Luigi De Maio. After 400 metres you will come to a hairpin bend with steps opposite taking you directly to Piazza Tasso. You can also take the shuttle bus to the centre if you prefer. Once in the square, cross over and go right down the pedestrian precinct of Corso Italia. After about 600 metres, you will come to Piazza Veniero.
From Sorrento station: Go down the steps of Piazza De Curtis to Corso Italia. Turn left along the Corso and after 400 metres cross straight over Piazza Tasso continuing along the pedestrian precinct of Corso Italia. After about 600 metres, you will come to Piazza Veniero.
