The last descendents of a Sorrentine noble family left their villa and possessions as a museum. Alfredo and Pompeo, the last Counts of Terranova, had an elegant villa on an overlook above the sea in the heart of Sorrento, richly furnished with glorious pieces and artwork. Today, it's a lovely museum graced by gorgeous gardens.
Located at the corner of Via Correale and Via Aniello Califano, it is just steps from Sorrento's main street, Corso Italia, on a cliff above the sea. The exhibits are spread across three floors and includes ancient artifacts from archeological finds, sumputous furnishings, antique clocks, intricate wood inlay items, porcelein and a Hall of Mirrors. The artwork spans several centuries, with special attention on Neapolitan mannerism, Flemish masters, and landscape.
It's worth a visit!
