Naples and the Amalfi Coast are a lot like its most famous daughter, Sophia Loren: lively, sensuous, charming, and stunningly beautiful with a natural form that could only be created by God. Ms. Loren has said that everything she is she owes to pasta, but you can’t help wondering as you pass clusters of beautiful women if it isn’t something in the water as well. Whatever it is, spend enough time here and it’s bound to rub off on you.
Perhaps it’s the passion that seems to flow through everything you see and do in this gorgeous setting on the bay. At a restaurant, order a plate of spaghetti vongole with tender little clams from the bay and the waiter congratulates you as if you’ve just won the lottery (you may as well have it’s delicious!). Explore the tiny streets of the Spaccanaploi and hear a cacophony of exuberant conversations complete with enough hand gestures to qualify as aerobic activity. Wander thru the ruins of Pompeii and see the public declaration of sensual delights in the form of provocative mosaics and statuary. Cool, calm and collected is not Naples fiery, flamboyant and alive is more like it.
Our STREETWISE® Naples Italy Map enables you to be part of the passion. Explore the heart of the city thru winding streets past historic churches, open markets spilling with fruits and vegetables and the ubiquitous cafes. Every Italian city seems to have a least one Café des Sports Naples has several – where the debates about soccer reach UN proportions. The Museo Archeologico Nazionale houses the restored treasures from Pompeii including mosaics of astonishing detail and finesse alongside the famous Farnese Bull, sculpted in the 3rd century BC. The inset map of the Naples area will provide the information you need to drive into or out of the city, whether it’s to the airport or venturing further south.
Out of Naples, you can drive to the ruins of Herculaneum or Pompeii, and afterward continue on to the Sorrento peninsula. This is possibly the most romantic place on earth. Word of warning: choose your traveling companion carefully because you will fall in love it’s that romantic! The hill-shaded map of the Amalfi Coast depicts all the twists and turns of this beautiful 50 kilometer stretch of mountainous coastline situated between Sorrento and Salerno. The coastline is dotted with small picturesque villages like Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano which are stacked precariously on steep cliffs above the Gulf of Salerno.
The famous Island of Capri is nearby, possessing jaw dropping beauty. Day trips to Capri can be a bit trying with the crush of tourists packed into the Piazza Umberto I, and boats lined up like planes at LaGuardia waiting to get into the Blue Grotto, but if you’re lucky enough to stay overnight you’ll witness the transformation of the island once the ferries carry away the last day tripper. A quiet descends and the island truly becomes a magical paradise suspended in time. Experience this once and you will dream about it forever.
