Meta di Sorrento, Province of Napoli, Campania, Italy
Meta - more often known as Meta di Sorrento, rises on terraced hills between the two mountains of Sant'Angelo and Crocione in the Sorrentine Peninsula, separated through the Camaldoli mountains from Vico Equense and through the Lavinola stram from Piano di Sorrento. The territory is intensively cultivated with olive trees, grapevines, orange and lemon trees, and the harbor settlement was originally a mariner village where many sea captains lived.
