Guess what? Meta is also named and spelled Meta di Sorrento - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Meta is a seaside town in Campania, Italy. This popular tourist destination is conveniently situated right along a road connecting Naples to Sorrento, making it an ideal stopover or base from where travelers can visit the surrounding cities.

With its splendid eighteenth-century villas amidst sprinkles of orange trees and geraniums, Meta is a colorful beach town. During the high season, visitors from near and far come for a dip in the azure waters.

Whether you prefer to take a quick train ride, a leisurely bus trip, or a taxi, you will have an easy time reaching Meta. Once you have arrived, you can walk or hail a cab to just about anywhere within the town.

Your first order of business will be to secure your accommodations for the night. If you are looking for an affordable stay within a hostel, you will be out of luck. Meta, however, provides other low-cost lodgings, including inns and hotels.

For the nearest hostel, you will have to make your base in one of the nearby towns, including Sant’Agnello, Sorrento, and others. Many of those hostels are within walking distance of Meta, allowing you to enjoy a daily healthful stroll from your hostel and back.

The main tourist attraction in Meta surely is the gorgeous coastline. The beaches, such as Lido Metamare, are clean and surrounded by awe-inspiring cliffs topped with colorful houses. At Lido Metamare, beach-goers can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas to enjoy hours of fun in the volcanic sands. With quiet music in the background, low-cost drinks and snacks at the onsite cafe, and all bathroom and changing facilities necessary, a day at this beach is like living within a fairy-tale.

Besides the azure waters, tourists also like to savor a relaxing meal along with a delicious wine in one of the restaurants within the town’s square. The Basilica di Santa Maria del Lauro is another draw for visitors who appreciate the intricately decorated interior, from ornate floors to meticulously carved ceilings and vivid paintings. No matter where you visit within Meta, be sure to stay until nighttime when its beauty takes on another level of intensity. Then you can retire to your hostel within the city or immediate vicinity.
