Colli di Fontanelle, hamlet of Sant'Agnello, is located on top of the Sorrento Peninsula hills. Its name derives from the dozens of water springs that there were in ancient times. This is popular for the charming panoramas: from the main square Piazza Carlo Sagrisanti, at 318 meters above sea level, you will admire the beauty of Sant'Agnello, Piano di Sorrento and Meta, with the Gulf of Naples on the background. Southwards there is a splendid view of the Gulf of Salerno and Arcipelago Li Galli, composed by three wonderful small islands: Gallo Lungo, La Rotonda and Briganti. Passing for these islands, according to the legend, Ulysses asked to be led to the mast of his ship, to not to be tempted from the captivating voices of the Sirens, whose songs seduced sailings and inducted them to crash into the rocks.
After the bustle and noise of the tourist centres along this coast, the position of Costanza is very quiet and peaceful.
It is 800 metres from the little square of Colli Di Fontanelle where you can find the nearest bus stop, restaurants, supermarket and small shops.
