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, Herculaneum, 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 Palermo Termini Imerese is located around 40 km to the east of the city of Palermo on the island of Sicily. The site of the town has been inhabited since prehistoric times and over the years the archaeological excavations have uncovered many artefacts. However, despite this the town's recorded history dates back to 409 BC when its more ancient neighbour, Himera, was completely destroyed by the Carthaginian army under the rule of Hannibal Mago.
Unfortunately, little of the town's ancient history remains with the exception of a few bits of Roman architecture and a hilltop fortress. The town's museum contains some interesting Arab period finds but apart from this there isn't a great deal in the town to see. However, the ancient town, and archaeological site, of Himera is close and is famous for the remains of the Temple of Victory which are located at the mouth of the Imera River, around 5 km to the east of Termini. Approximately 14 km to the south of Termini, and also worth a visit, is Caccamo Castle.
From the town's small port ferries depart to Civitavecchia on the Italian mainland.
