200 kilometres of wonders dominated by Vesuvius
Few places in the world can amaze and fascinate like the Gulf of Naples, the great inlet of the Tyrrhenian Sea stretching from Mount Procida for over 200 kilometres to Punta Campanella on the Sorrento peninsula.
With the imposing Mount Vesuvius dominating the area and offering stunning views, cities of art and delightful villages alternate with the ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabia, as well as unmissable natural parks. Italy’s most beautiful islands lie before you: Capri, Ischia and Procida, all easily accessible from the Gulf and boasting spectacular locations, including the Blue Grotto, Pozzo Vecchio beach and Aragonese castle.
There are countless unique experiences to be had in the area. You can explore an ancient city engulfed by water at the Underwater Archaeological Park of Baia, hike the slopes of the volcano, and step back in time to relive the splendour of Roman times at the Flavian Amphitheatre in Pozzuoli or the Archaeological Museum of Campi Flegrei.
Not forgetting the art of culture: the historic centre of Naples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, and the entire city promise to satisfy and fascinate the most refined cultural palates.
