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.
It is still not certain exactly when the town was founded, but Sorrento was, without doubt, already a strategic commercial town for both the Greeks and the Etruscans. Today, Sorrento is a tourist destination of international repute, made all the more popular by a series of ancient traditions including the production of wine, gastronomic products and fine craftsmanship.
Emperors and sovereigns, sheiks and noblewomen, novelists and divas, painters and poets. All seduced by this magical island, by its infinite beauty and by its fascinating history.
Rising up out of the sea just off the far end of the Sorrentine peninsula, the island of Capri has long been the Bay of Naples' most desirable, and glamorous destination. Preferred playground of the rich and famous since Roman times, Augustus found Capri's enchanting landscape the perfect antidote to the stresses of office; Tiberius even moved the imperial capital here, and transformed the island in magnificent theatre for his infamous "royal" revelries. In the early 1900's the island's name became synonymous with the moneyed and artistic elite who began to arrive on Capri’s shores. This was the time when, on the coast of Anacapri, the Grotta Azzurra was "discovered", adding yet another attraction to the island's long list of stunningly beautiful sites.
