The most evocative archaeological site in the world.The eruption of Mont Vesuvius on August 24th in 79 A.D buried the city under a blanket of ash and lapilli that was 6 to 7 metres thick. Most of the inhabitants of the city, having fled their homes, died on the seashore. The few who were left, in the vain hope of saving themselves in the underground passages beneath their houses, suffocated. The moulds of their dying bodies, which were obtained by pouring liquid chalk into the cavities left in the layer of ash by their bodies, are a moving illustration of the tragedy. Walking around the Pompeian excavation is a unique experience.
A splendid natural setting makes the Sorrentine Peninsula one of the most famous touristic destinations in all of Italy Jutting out into the Tyrrenian sea and almost touching the Island of Capri, divides the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno. The most famous town on the peninsula is Sorrento: perched on a commanding cliff towering over the sea, this enchanting town preserves important remnants from classic and medieval times that stand alongside Renaissance and Baroque structures. However, it is the natural beauty of this area that beckons visitors : the coastal road is truly one of Italy’s most marvellous landscapes, winding alongside citrus groves and olive trees that gently slope towards the sea.
It’s the coast’s most picturesque and photogenic town, with steeply stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a waterfall of blanched peach, pink and terracotta colors. No less colorful are its near-vertical streets and steps lined with wisteria-draped hotels, smart restaurant and fashionable boutiques. There’s still a southern Italian holiday feel about the place as well, with sunbathers eating pizza on the beach, kids pestering gelati and chic women checking out the boutiques. “Moda Positano” was born here in the ‘60s and the town was the first in Italy import bikinis from Florence.
