    Amalfi Coast thumbnail
    Part of the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

    The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline of about 25km in the Gulf of Salerno in Campania, Italy. It is famous worldwide for its natural beauty and colorful villages.

    The famous coast takes its name from its most important city-village, Amalfi, the historic Amalfi Republic's historic capital, which is now a small and beautiful tourist destination. Also notable on the coast are Positano and Ravello's towns, both top holiday destinations chosen by the American 'jet set' of the mid-20th century ...

    Capri thumbnail
    A port on the island of Capri, Italy.

    The very touristy island of Capri is located in the Bay of Naples, opposite the Sorrento peninsula. This name is also given to the largest town on the island.

The climate, the serene sky, the charm of the landscape and the many attractions make this island the most beautiful tourist destination in any season.

  • A landmark in the rebuilding of Naples, Galleria Umberto is probably the oldest shopping mall and by far one of the grandest in Southern Italy. The gallery was built starting from 1887 and it took four years to complete this cross-shaped building with its high and spacious glass vaults.

    The Galleria is a result of the Risanemento (or resanitizing) of Naples. During the 1880s and 90s, the city was known for its squalor. The city needed a symbol of hope and prosperity after the ravages of Cholera and the overcrowding of the houses ...

    Pompeii thumbnail
    Ruins of Pompei by Mt. Vesuvius.

    Pompeii points you back to Italy's glorious past – destroyed by the ravages of nature and time, but still a wonder and beauty in its own right. It is, in fact, one of Italy's top tourist draws. This UNESCO-declared World Heritage Site was nearly lost to us except for its rediscovery (albeit by accident) in 1748. Excavations show a great city at the height of the grandeur that was Rome. A visit to Pompeii will give you a renewed appreciation of how the people lived at the Roman Empire's height.

    Pompeii is nestled at the base of Pompeii, near Naples, in Campania ...

  • A walk through the Galleria Principe di Napoli (Prince of Naples Mall) is in itself a simple, yet sweet pleasure.

    Ornate would be a one-word description of the Galleria Principe di Napoli. The combination of glass and iron is sheer poetry in architecture, especially for its time. The architects Giovanni De Novellis and Nicola Breglia were the ones who designed this 19th century shopping gallery.

    Built between the years 1876 and 1883, Galleria Principe di Napoli arose as a response to the need to "re-sanitize" Naples ...
