Capry by boat

Reaching Capri by motorboat is the most romantic and pleasant way of getting to know the island. Capri will welcome you at the cheerful Marina Grande Harbour and the posh Piazzetta and will offer a magnificent panoramic viewpoint of Punta Tragrara, the Natural Arch, and the impressive Faraglioni standing out against the sea. Visit Marina Piccola, where according to legend, the mermaids described by Homer lived and go on as far as Anacapri with its authentic lifestyle, where you will find traditional shops, and peaceful landscapes. Make sure you don’t miss the view from Solaro Mount, only accessible by chair lift, and San Michele Villa, built by the Swedish writer and Doctor Axel Munthe as his own residence. Also not to be missed are the Augustus Gardens, the famous Via Krupp and the remains of Tiberius’ Villa Jovis.

Amalfi Coast

Declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the Amalfi Coast is one of the most spectacular coastlines in Europe with its fascinating views, smells, traditions and its art and colours. Along the coast you will find Amalfi, the ancient Republica Marinara, and Ravello, where natural beauty and precious monuments have enchanted artists and international élites throughout the centuries. After Amalfi, you will find Positano, set in the rock and leaning on the sea, and finally Maiori, where between a hike and a dive into the sea you will have the chance to enjoy the many tastes of the freshest dishes the area has to offer.

Pompei and Ercolano

Both of these places peacefully sleep under the volcanic ash that covered them in 79 A.D., when Mount Vesuvius erupted. In Pompeii the excavation work started during the 18th century and gradually uncovered wonderful villas with frescos completely intact, the Lupanare, an amphitheatre and other remains that give you the feeling of being frozen in time. It is a completely preserved, real Roman city. In addition, Ercolano also offers many sites with historical value, even though Ercolano didn’t have the same reputation for commercial trading of wines and olive oils as Pompeii did in ancient times.

Mount Vesuvius

From Ercolano you can easily reach Mount Vesuvius. One of the most famous and studied volcanoes of the Planet, the still active crater offers a great show and, from the top it, you can enjoy a wonderful view of Mount Vesuvius Park. The vast, expansive area around the volcano was sectioned off in order to preserve animal and vegetal species as well as the geological peculiarities in the soil.

Naples-Solfatara

The city of Naples offers a huge variety of attractions for tourists: from the National Museum to the Royal Palace, Piazza del Plebiscito and the City Hall Square, from Castel Nuovo to San Carlo Theatre.>>Find more

A popular and beautiful attraction is the Solfatara, in the Pozzuoli area, just north of Naples. It contains just one of the 40 volcanoes of the Phlegraean Fields and is an active sulfur crater and a naturalistic oasis. Here, you can hike along very unique paths and trails and observe the indigenous plant and animal life. Walk among fumaroles, mofettes, small mud volcanoes, and forests that host peculiar fauna species that exist in this specific environment and make your trip to Naples complete.

Isle of Ischia

The Isle of Ischia is rich in history, natural resources, art and folklore. It is an island of discovery from dawn to dusk amongst the harbour, with its old taverns along the beach and the pedestrian area, the ancient village, the Aragonese Castle, the magnificent rock formation called “Fungo” situated along the coast, and finally Mount Epomeus, overlooking the entire island.

Salerno-Paestum

The city of Salerno is the second largest in Campania, and just like any other important city it too is rich in monuments and places of interest from a cultural point of view. It owes much of its fame to the Salerno Medical School, a prestigious and famous university since the beginning of the Middle Ages up to and including today.

The whole Salerno city center is considered to be a notable example of medieval urban engineering with the Dome or San Matteo Cathedral at its heart.

Nearby, the town of Paestum, founded by the Greeks around 600 B.C., was originally called Poseidonia, deriving its name from Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, to whom the city was dedicated. Salerno keeps the city walls and its four temples wonderfully preserved. In the past, the village used to be an important trading and cultural center, due to its strategic position near the mouth of the river Sele in the Gulf of Salerno.

Caserta

Caserta is notoriously known as the “Versailles of Naples” for its wonderful Royal Palace, built by Charles of Borboun in the 18th century. Even nowadays, it is still considered one of the most lavish in Italy, with its 1,200 rooms full of candelabras, frescos, tapestries and rich furnishings, as well as its wonderful gardens surrounding an elegant and majestic 75-meter waterfall.
