Naples Guide

The Italian city of Naples, or Napoli as it is also called, is located in the Campania region of the country and lies on the Gulf of Naples, on southern Italy's west coast. The city is located in an enviable position between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei. The Roman ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, which were destroyed the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, are located close to the city as is the city of Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Also located close to Naples are the former parts of the Roman naval facility of Portus Julius, namely the port towns of Pozzuoli and Baia which are both to the north of Naples. The city is adorned with medieval, Baroque and Renaissance churches, castles and palaces and has long been an important centre for the arts and architecture. In the 18th century, Naples went through a period of neoclassicism, following the discovery of the remarkably intact Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.

The port of Naples is home to several ferry, hydrofoil and SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) catamaran services, linking numerous locations in both the Neapolitan province, including Capri, Ischia and Sorrento, and the Salernitan province, including Salerno, Positano and Amalfi. Ferry services also operate to Sicily, Sardinia, Ponza and the Aeolian Islands.

Vulcano Guide

The small Italian island of Vulcano lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is roughly 25 km off the coast of the island of Sicily. It is the southernmost of the eight islands that make up the Aeolian group of islands. The island has a number of volcanic centres, including one of four active, non-submarine, volcanoes in Italy. The most recent volcanic activity on the island was at the Gran Cratere at the top of the Fossa Cone, with the cone having grown in the Lentia Caldera in the middle of the island, and has had around 9 major eruptions in the last 6,000 years. However, since the eruption of the Fossa Cone between 1888 and 1890, which deposited around 5 meters of material on the summit, the island has been quiet. For the brave, visitors are able to walk to the crater of a volcano where you can observe smoke coming out of the ground! Apart from the volcanos the island is popular with tourists because of its hot springs which are only a short walk from the island's harbour.
