POMPEI

Pompei is a city in the province of Naples (Campania, Italy).

The city is mainly famous for the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii, located in the frazione of Pompei Scavi. Pompei is a ruined and partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples and Caserta in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Along with Herculaneum, its sister city, Pompeii was destroyed, and completely buried, during a long catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in AD 79.

The volcano collapsed higher roof-lines and buried Pompeii under many meters of ash and pumice, and it was lost for nearly 1700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1748. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire. Today, it is both one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy, with 2,571,725 visitors in 2007, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

AMALFI COAST

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most enchanting coastlines in Europe, for the spectacular landscape and historic heritage of the place. The vegetable patches and the gardens, are all contained in terraces, where the products, like lemons, are cultivated from centuries.

Along the 50km of the wonderful Amalfi Coast there are small villages, like Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Atrani, Scala, all located near little beaches, where deep high valleys run down to the sea, confirming the traditional interplay between sea land, trade and agriculture, so peculiar to the history of Amalfi.

The nature of Amalfi coastline has made very difficult and interesting the construction of the main road (named Statale 163) that connects/passing all the villages of the coast. This incredible road was built around 1840 and completed in 1852, and it wings around the mountains, on cliffs varying from 50ft to 400ft above the sea, offering each corner a breathtaking sea view.
