Even if your interests do not lie in history, this is an archaeological site that you cannot be failed to dominates the Bay of Naples. It is the only active volcano on the mainland of Europe. The slopes were once covered with vineyards and woods and provided an innocent looking backdrop for the bustling towns of Pompei and Herculaneum below.

AMALFI - SORRENTO
The “Amalfi Drive” is said to be the most spectacular in Europe and from Sorrento, the winding cliff top road offers breathtaking panoramic views at every turn. Each spot is a world of it own, a fantastic world that which dazzles the imagination and inspires unforgettable impressions. We make a stop just above Positano, yet another splendid jewel of this coastline, which boasts picturesque pink and white villas perched dramatically on the steeps hillside. Then on the Amalfi, which gives it the name to the whole coast on which it lies. Once a thriving Marine Republic, powerful and prosperous and now a thriving holiday resort. The unmistakable cluster of white tightly packed houses rising up the hillside is dominated by the beautiful Cathedral which stands superbly on the top of the great flight of steps leading up from the main square. Housed in the magnificent Cathedral are remains of the Patron Saint of Amalfi and also Scotland – Saint Andrew. From Amalfi we visit Sorrento, with his lovely streets: the souvenirs are a cut above the norm, with plenty of fine old shops selling ceramics, lacework and intarsio (marquetry items) – famously produced here. The main drawback is the lack of a proper beach; the town straddles the cliffs overlooking the water to Naples and Mt Vesuvius.
