This coastal route takes you into open countryside as it climbs steeply up the Pizzetiello hill on to a plateau, with extensive sea views on a clear day. There is some minor exposure. The descent, whilst steep, is not as difficult as the ascent and eventually leads to roads and tracks dropping into Colli di Fontanelle. You pass a restaurant above Colli and there is a bar in the village. After Colli there is some gentle climbing on tracks before turning for the long descent through the suburbs of Sorrento, eventually overlooking the striking cemetery. The train and bus stations are across the main road, Via degli Aranci, where I turn left to meet my transport further down the road.

The route generally follows CAI red and white waymarks as far as Colli di Fontanelle but they are not always apparent and route finding through the smallholdings above the village of Monticello and on to the Pizzetiello requires alertness.

A limited number of route 5070 buses run all the way from Sorrento to Torca. Catch one and alight where it turns round, by the church, for its return journey. My route starts there.
