Pompeii was Roman city destroyed by a two-day long eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Along with neighboring Herculaneum, Pompeii remained buried under 60 feet of ash until being discovered in 1748.
Choose from the following destinations:
Amalfi was a favorite destination of the British aristocracy and today host to thousands from around the world attracted by sun, sea and the scent of millions of lemons growing on terraced gardens.
Positano - Before May, 1953, Positano, was a poverty stricken fishing village.
Then, Harper's Bazaar published the John Steinbeck essay "Positano bites deep" and Positano became a popular upscale resort.
Sorrento has been a staple on the Grand Tour of Europe since the 18th century, hosting Milton, Byron, Keats, and Longfellow. From May thru October the town is alive with people, but the rest of the year? It’s quiet relaxation enjoyed by locals and a few knowing visitors.
Capri - For such a small island, Capri has quite the reputation. And there's a reason for it - it's exotic and charming as well as busy and calm. One could hike all
around the island on nature trails or rest easy, peoplewatching along the coastline.
