The Italian city of Naples, or Napoli as it is also called, is located in the Campania region of the country and lies on the Gulf of Naples, on southern Italy's west coast. The city is located in an enviable position between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei. The Roman ruins of Pompeii, Herulaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, which were destroyed the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, are located close to the city as is the city of Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Also located close to Naples are the former parts of the Roman naval facility of Portus Julius, namely the port towns of Pozzuoli and Baia which are both to the north of Naples. The city is adorned with medieval, Baroque and Renaissance churches, castles and palaces and has long been an important centre for the arts and architecture. In the 18th century, Naples went through a period of neoclassicism, following the discovery of the remarkably intact Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.
The port of Naples is home to several ferry, hydrofoil and SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) catamaran services, linking numerous locations in both the Neapolitan province, including Capri, Ischia and Sorrento, and the Salernitan province, including Salerno, Positano and Amalfi. Ferry services also operate to Sicily, Sardinia, Ponza and the Aeolian Islands.
The Italian town of Sorrento is a hugely popular resort that enjoys an enviable coastal location. The town manages to cope well with the influx of tourists each summer, remaining surprisingly genteel and tranquil. Sorrento is very much a sophisticated town and this is reflected in the quality of the tourism related merchandise sold in the local gift shops, with most souvenirs tending to be of a fairly high standard. One of the oldest landmarks in the city is the Duomo (Cathedral), which dominates the Sorrento skyline and stands proudly along the Corso Italia. Located on the Piazza San Antonio, the Basilica di San Antonino is another popular attraction as is the 15th-century Sedil Dominova, and the Villa Comunale's Chiesa di San Francesco, which is famed for its resplendent 14th-century cloisters. Alternatively, visitors should pay a visit to the Piazza della Vittoria, which is close to the Marina Grande and whilst the views of Sorrento's bay front here may not quite rival those from the Villa Comunale, they are still rather special and well worth savouring.
From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.
