Naples Guide

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.

Positano Guide

The Italian town of Positano is located along the beautiful Amalfi Coast and is widely regarded by many as one of the most picturesque coastal towns in the country. The town itself has a good number of pretty pastel coloured houses that seem to cling to the hillside next to the sea and visitors should be aware that there are a large number of steep streets and stairways in the town which may be a challenge for some. Despite the town now being a popular holiday destination it has still managed to retain a great deal of its charming fishing village atmosphere that has stunning cliff-hugging roads, lively beachfronts and some breathtaking views. Apart from lazing in the sun on one of the town's beaches popular things to do include taking a cruise along the Amalfi Coast, taking in the lovely view of the Bay of Salerno, or trekking along one of the regions walking trails which includes the stunning cliff side path that connects the Spiaggia Grande and Spiaggia del Fornillo beaches.

Ferries to Amalfi, Capri and Salerno depart from the town's harbour.
