Once upon a time at Villa Zagara


Homer; the famous Greek poet, talked about Sorrento in the Odyssey. He described the city as the land of mermaids that charmed sailors. It is very likely that these mermaids were in fact dolphins that accompanied boats trying to navigate up to the Costa Tufacea! From the Belvedere of Villa Zagara, during Spring time you can still to this day see the dolphins accompanying ships. According to some sources, Homer mentioned precisely this viewpoint, from villa Zagara, as it was one of the few that overlooked the old harbour.

Language Spoken

Italian – French and English are also widely spoken and understood.




Italy has plenty of public transport, from the trains to the metro in cities like Milan. The roads (and Italian drivers) are notoriously terrifying for foreigners so it’s often better to take a taxi than hire a car.

Public Holidays

Each town in Italy has it's own patron saint and shuts down to celebrate the saint’s day each year (e.g. Rome is Sts. Peter and Paul, June 29th). Alongside Christmas and Easter, the other big religious festivals are Epiphany (6th January) and All Saints Day (1st November). All of Italy celebrates Labour Day (1st May) and also Liberation Day (April 25th).

Good Time to Go

Late April - Mid October

good to know

June is recognised as the month of Juno, the Roman Goddess of Marriage.

What Couples Say

“Thank you to the amazing staff for organizing the best day of our life. The villa is a new venue located in the city center of Sorrento. The place cannot be described, it is totally worth a visit as pictures do not show its charm and beauty. Thank you for making us living a dream and creating the best day of our life…”
