Salerno is the capital of the Amalfi Coast on the Tyrrhenian Sea, which includes the famous towns of Amalfi and Positano. It is a pretty town, scattered with narrow streets, medieval churches and houses and trendy wine bars. It is commonly known for its Scuola Medica Salernitana, the first medical school in the world.
Sorrento, overlooking the Bay of Naples, is positioned on the coast in the Gulf of Naples between green hills and clear blue sea. With its jaw dropping panorama view appealing to an abundance of tourists each year, you can see Vesuvius, the city of Naples, and the islands of Capri and Ischia from Sorrento.
Procida is the Bay of Naples smallest island at only four square kilometres large and its best kept secret with hidden lemon groves, weathered fishermen and colourful pastel-hued houses. The charming town has preserved its original beauty and traditions. It is so picturesque you’ll be whipping that camera out!
Ischia is the largest of the islands in the Bay of Naples and is a volcanic island 10km long and 7km wide. schia is known as the island of eternal youth because of its hot springs in Campania, rich in springs, muds, fumaroles and sands, as well as eight thermal-mineral reservoirs, offering relief for all kinds of health problems.
Capri, rugged and rocky yet stylish and beautiful, this island is a short sail from Naples to the north and the Amalfi Coast to the south and is regarded by many as the most beautiful place on earth so it is an obligatory stop. The island is steeped in legends and myths and known in Greek mythology as the isle of the sirens, and was a favoured resort of the Roman emperors.
You cannot visit the Amalfi Coast and not stop off at Amalfi, the heart of this magnificent Italian coastline. Built into a gorge in the high mountain, visitors to Amalfi can meander around this pretty little town with its bustling piazzas, small beach and its beautiful medieval Cathedral. It originally dates back to the first century A.D. when the Roman aristocracy built luxurious villas in this area.
If you didn’t get an opportunity to visit Salerno town on your first night we can’t recommend going enough. At night you can walk along the Lungomare, a boulevard lines with palm trees and a spectacular view of the sea and surrounding hills.
