Stabia is located on the Bay of Naples in the Province of Naples in the Campania region of southern Italy. It is around 30 km to the south east of Naples and is situated adjacent to the ancient Roman city of Stabiae which was destroyed by the Vesuvio volcano eruption in 79 AD. An archaeological excavation of the Roman villas, which were preserved by the volcanic eruption, is currently taking place. There are many things to do and see in the region including taking in the wonderful architecture, the many churches and the wonderful works of art of the old town centre. All of this, and the ancient archaeological finds of Stabiae, make this a perfect place for a relaxing vacation, especially for travellers who want a pleasant mix of culture and amazing beaches.
Currently the port is used for commercial, tourist and fishing vessels. There are also shipyards and it is the third largest port in Campania after Naples and Salerno. Ferries can be taken from the port to Capri and Sorrento.
The Italian town of Sorrento is a very popular resort town and occupies a perfect coastal location. It is a sophisticated town and is reflected in the most of what the town has to offer including the goods sold in the local gift shops, which tend to be of a high quality. A popular attraction in the town is the Cathedral which has a prominent position in the town's skyline and is located along the Corsa Italia. Other popular attractions include the 15th century Sedil Dominova, the Villa Comunale's Chiesa de San Francesco, with its lovely 14th century cloisters, and the Basilica de San Antonino that is located on the Piazza San Antonio. 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.
