Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here on the trip on the Sant'Agata tourist train and found the whole thing really quaint. The view from the tower is the main attraction and affords an all-round view of both sides of the peninsula. Great photo op!

Just above the lovely village of Santa Agata is this monasteryPriory. The main building and church were closed when we arrived, but there was a volunteer with the key to the tower waiting for visitors on foot (drive closed). In return for a small offering to the church you can climb the tower right to the top (don't miss final few steps) and find a magnificent 360 degree view encompassing the Gulf of Sorrento, the Gulf of Naples, the Amalfi Coast and Capri. That summed up all we saw in a 7 day visit to the area. 8 nuns still live there and there is also a little shop where you can hand-made goods they have made.

I had a pleasant 20-30 minute walk up the hillside to this quiet old monastery having obtained directions fro the Tourist Information staff. It's a beautiful spot to view the Bay of Naples and you can see the Island of Capri too. When I went I was able to enter and climb up to the rooftop viewpoint. Opens 1/4-30/9 10-12 Noon and 17.00-19.00 and 1/10-31/3 10.00-12 noon and 15.00-17.00.

We were joined by 2 lovely dogs in the village who we think guided us up the road to the monastery and back! It is a gentle uphill walk, very peaceful and quiet. When you reach Monastero di San Paolo there is a clearing with panoramic views of Sorrento, Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. Fabulous

We walked up to the monastery after a lunch in town. You don't need to be "dressed for a hike". It's a pretty easy walk and the view is beautiful.

We decided to walk up to the Moastero got there for about half 10 opening times claimed open from 10-12. It was closed walked around the outside for a while, tried the church but a service was going on. Other people walking around waiting for it to open, but no one there to ask. Church service finished we went in had a look not a spectacular church. Thought we'd check one last time before going down as the shop had opened and low and behold it had been opened, There was about 10 of us up there and we filled the whole viewing space. It was then announced that the only reason it was open was an Italian family had asked the Nun for the key and had to return it so could we all go because they wanted to leave. The viewwas good but it's not worth the hassle. View of sorrento isn't better than the one you get in most hotels over looking.

Well worth a walk up from Sant Agata. There's a cafe just before the Monastery gates that's worth a visit on a hot day.
The monastery ground are cool and pleasant with good views. But climb to the top of the tower for amazing 360 degree views over the bay of Naples, the Amalfi coast and Capri.

Beautiful views with a nice climb to the monastery. Unfortunately, the actual monastery was closed and only open 10-12 and 5-7. But we were able to walk around the area and take in the views.

A 10 minute walk up from the top of town and you come to the monastery - fabulous views on a nice day to the 2 gulfs of Salerno and Naples. Peaceful, unspoilt grounds and just a brilliant place to unwind and contemplate ...
