Art Museum
“The Sansevero Chapel Museum in the historic heart of Naples is a jewel of the world’s artistic heritage. Here, baroque creativity, dynastic pride, beauty and mystery blend to create a unique and almost timeless atmosphere. With its masterpieces such as the famous Veiled Christ, renowned world over for the remarkable tissue-like quality of the marble, feats of virtuosity such as Disillusion, and enigmatic creations such as the Anatomical Machines, the Sansevero Chapel is one of the most impressive monuments that the human mind has ever conceived.”

“Do not miss a visit to the famous Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that destroyed the ancient city of Pompeii. The cost to climb to the top is 10 euros and you do not necessarily need a tour guide. The effort to get there will be rewarded with a view of the Bay of Naples that will leave you speechless. You can go to Vesuvius by car using google maps.”

“Amalfi nestles in the ravine of the Valle dei Mulini. Its churches, towers, and arcaded houses, grouped together with attractive irregularity, rise above a small harbor, and are backed by precipices of wild magnificence. In its heyday, when it was a Maritime Republic, Amalfi rivaled Pisa, Genoa and Venice. By the 7th century the city was ruled by Doges, as Venice, and was recognized as the greatest naval power in the West. Its navel expertise led to the invention of the compass and the codification of the earliest maritime laws. In the 12th century, this great maritime republic had a population of 100,00 people who masterminded regional trade with the East. Shortly afterwards, the Normans from Sicily vanquished Amalfi and the city was repeatedly sacked by Pisa, its greatest rival. Amalfi merchants established trading posts in Byzantium, Asia Minor and Africa. In the Holy Land, they founded the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, from which the Crusader Knights of St. John developed. Their symbol, the Maltese cross, is still carved on Amalfi's street comers. Webster's brooding revenge drama, The Duchess of Malfi, was based on the tragic life of Joanna of Aragon, the Duke of Amalfi's consort in the 15th century. The Regatta of the Four Ancient Maritime Republics, complete with galleons, is a magnificent evocation of the past, held in Amalfi every four years. Since the collapse of the republic, Amalfi sunk into oblivion until Edwardian times. As a favorite winter resort, it was then a genteel haunt for foreigners who tireed of the excesses on the French Riviera. Amalfi today, with a population of 6,000, is a shadow of its former self but retains an air of faded elegance. Horse-drawn carts still ply the Lungomare dei Cavalieri for visitors' amusement, much as they did in Edwardian days. The Duomo, the glittering Cathedral, is viewed from down below. The steep walk up is a chance to appreciate the spindly Moorish archways andgeometric facade, inlaid with vivid mosaics. While looking autenthentic, the facade was reconstructed in the 19th century, based on the medieval model, Henry Swinburne, the 18th century traveler, was not sympathetic to the Arab influences, calling the cathedral typical of the "barbarous ages, when Grecian rules and proportions were forgotten". Yet framed by mountains and monasteries, the Norman Saracen bell-tower presents a striking vision to visitors. The baroque interior leads to a crypt containing the remains of St. Andrew the Apostle, moved here from Constantinople in 1208. Like the miraculous liquefaction of San Gennaro's blood in Naples, the cult of St. Andrew, a mysterious oil, is said to seep from his bones. Even St. Francis of Assisi declared himself a devotee.”

“Pompeii (/pɒmˈpeɪi/) was an ancient Roman city near modern Naples in the Campania region of Italy, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area (e.g. at Boscoreale, Stabiae), was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Volcanic ash typically buried inhabitants who did not escape the lethal effects of the earthquake and eruption. Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site status and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy, with approximately 2.5 million visitors every year.”

“Via Toledo is one of the most famous shopping streets in Naples. In addition to the famous and beautiful metro, it leads directly to Piazza Trieste and Trento and Piazza del Plebiscito. By the way you can find clothes shops of the most famous brands and artisans. A vast and delicious gastronomic proposal: pizza, fried food, desserts and fried pizza. I recommend the sfogliatella from Pintauro and the pizza from Gennaro Salvo.”

“The Sentiero degli Dei links the town of Agerola with Positano. The name of the footpath, The Path of the Gods, is an indication of the spectacular scenery en-route: the route runs gently downhill from Agerola to Positano, with magnificent views of the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri.”
