Italy

The Amalfi Coast and The City of  Naples
5 Day Trip


4 Days exploring and photographing the City of Naples & the Costeria Amalfitana. Naples -  a chaotic yet spectacular metropolis sprawling noisily around the edge of the beautiful Bay of Naples.
The compact centre of Naples, filled with palaces, churches, convents and monasteries, revolves around just a few streets.

We then travel to the enchanting and spectacular Coastline that is the southern flank of the Sorrento Peninsula – The Amalfi Coast.   Staying high on the plains above the town of Amalfi, we visit Positano, a village clambering down a vertiginous slope to the sea.   Ravello offers us some of the best views along the coast with its prime vantage points from Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo.   Amalfi with its beautiful 13th Century Duomo and the small neighbouring fishing village of Atrani.
