Castellamare di Stabia is an enchanting place located on the slopes of the Lattari Mountains, suitable for every visitor, from children to couples and families. Archaeology lovers can visit the Archaeological excavations of Stabia, the ancient Stabiae. For relaxation lovers we recommend a walk in the Municipal Villa with its Seafront and the Public Gardens. The river Sarno mouth traces the boundary line between Castellammare, Torre Annunziata and Pompeii. Trekking lovers can access Monte Faito, enchanting destination with breathtaking sunsets. Like all coastal cities, Stabiae offers culinary specialties to taste, such as the Castellammare biscuit, with the characteristic cigar-shaped prepared with a few simple ingredients, the artichoke of Schito, or Violet Artichoke, which differs from the Roman variety for the early production between February and May and the leaves with violet shades. It is also possible to taste homemade ice cream and other typical desserts such as torroncino or zuccotto. Do not forget the seafood dishes, such as the famous caponata stabiese. The city is easily accessible by car, via the railway line and by sea. From here you can easily visit Naples, the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Sorrento and Vico Equense, and reach the islands of Ischia and Capri. The ancient Romans frequented these areas for the therapeutic virtues of mineral water, in the past it was also possible to spend a wonderful day at the Thermal Baths of Stabia, now not accessible to the public.
