Amalfi Coast


 

The region of coastline stretching from Sorrento, South of Naples, to Amalfi, so called Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO world heritage site that is renowned for its natural beauty as well as its characteristic towns. You’ll find houses and buildings painted in fresh pastels, stuck into cliffs and canyons … the flowery spectacle set in the cliffs framed by the endless blue sky and sparkling water.

The crystal clear ocean waters and breathtaking landscapes are offset by the famous towns of Sorrento, Praiano, Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi, whose charming architecture elegantly blends into the mountainous landscape. The Island of Capri is a favorite destination for celebrities and is known for its sheer cliffs, amazing grottos and crystal blue water.

The Island if Ischia is located above an ancient submerged volcanic crater and is rich in thermal water, making it a great source for natural spas and thermal baths. Of historical and archaeological interest are the ancient towns of Pompeii and Ercolano, preserved for all time by the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Major attractions: Pompeii and Ercolano archeological sites, Sorrento, Positano, Capri, Ischia and smaller towns along the Amalfi Coast, the archeological site of Paestum by buffalo mozzarella farms, and the town of Castellabbate along the Cilento Coast south of Salerno. Major theaters and music events: Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Ravello Festival in Ravello.

Rome


 

Rome is known as the 'Eternal City', the centre of Western Civilization and one of the most widely visited cities in the world.  It is a city of contrasts, both ancient and modern. Romantic and harsh. It is a place of beautiful warm light and many dark corners. 
 
The layers of history in Rome are second to none in the world and to appreciate Rome, in all its glory, it is useful and helpful to have some understanding of what happened here over the centuries.  Whether you do tours with us or another company, it is most helpful to read - do guided tours - watch films.  
 
This city is one of the most important cultural, artistic and intellectual centres in Europe.  It is also home to Vatican City, the centre of the Catholic Church.
 
The history of Rome and Vatican City draw over 58 million visitors each year, almost as many people who live in Italy.  
 
 

 

Vatican City


 

Vatican City is the smallest independent state in the world. The importance of this city state however is inversely proportional to its size. The area which Vatican City occupies is between Monte Mario and the Janiculum. In the 1st century B.C., it was the site of Caligula's circus - where Nero had hundres of Christians martyred, some years after. The Church rises on teh spot where one of NEro's victims St. Peter was burried. Over the years, other building grew up around it. The Vatican's independence started in the 8th century, and was of primary importance throughout the Middle Ages. The Papal State expanded to such an extent that, until the unity of Italy when it was wiped off the Italian political scene, it covered practically all of Central Italy. It only regained an independent political status in 1929 (as a state with less than a half a square kilometer of territory).
