Once the domain of kings and wealthy nobleman, modern Naples is a lively, working port city along the Amalfi Coast. It is surrounded by Cape Miseno on one side and the Sorrento peninsula on the other and across the blue waters of the Bay of Naples lies the charming isle of Capri. Its modern skyline is dominated by the heights of the not-too-distant Mount Vesuvius. Don't miss out on Pompeii, this Roman city was destroyed by volcanic ash, but she tells her story in excavated baths, villas and theatres. See well-preserved frescoes, mosaic-inlaid floors, and plaster casts that mark the positions of Pompeii's fallen citizens.
