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.


Salina Guide

The Italian island of Salina is one of the Aeolian Islands and is a destination of nature lovers who will fall in love with the island's beautiful landscape that is made up of volcanic rocks and slopes of olive trees and capers. The island is less crowded that Lipari and is the greenest and most fertile of all the Aeolian Archipelago islands and is known for its charming villages where the progress of time seems to have stopped. For example, in Rinella, there is a lovely small harbour which is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunsets and the way the locals decorate their houses always seems to catch the attention of tourists. In the east of the island is the village of Pollara where if you take the winding stairway down to the sea you will find the famous coastline where the famous Italian film director Massimo Troisi filmed the movie Il Postino (The Postman). This is Salina's most beautiful beach where visitors will find shallow, warm, clear waters filled with sponges, Moray Eels and Groupers. this is also a good spot for scuba diving and has some excellent underwater photography opportunities.

The island can be reached by hydrofoil and SNAV ferry from Messina on the island of Sicily.
