"The largest town on Italy’s most breathtaking coastline."

Poised between the mountains and the sea, the narrow streets and passageways weave among monuments that testify to its former grandeur. The most important being the "Duomo" which dominates the central square, dedicated to Saint Andrew, originally founded in the 9th century, rebuilt in Romanesque style in the 11th century and then altered main times after. The façade and atrium date from the 1800s, but the carved bronze doors were cast in Constantinople around the year 1000. Escaping from the busy square filled with shops and cafes, you can stroll along the promenade looking down on to the pebble beach of Amalfi and across to the port.

One of the 'places to visit' along the Amalfi Coast is the Emerald Grotto. It is known for its natural "fireworks display" caused by light reflecting off its stalactites, and the jewel-like sheen of its green waters.

The cavern itself has an area of about 30 x 60 metres. At its highest point, its ceiling riches as high as 24 metres. From these heights hang Nature’s own "chandeliers": numerous stalactites, thin and delicate, catching the light. But the most unusual rock formations are the stalagmites, which seem to emerge from the sea, twisting upwards towards the ceiling. Some are over 10 metres high, and are so wide that it is impossible to encircle them with your arms. Beneath the water, covered by about four metres of water, is the original ceramic bed.

The Emerald Grotto’s key feature is its exquisitely brilliant blue and green waters, which were in fact the inspiration for its name. The colours of the water, reflecting of the ceilings and floors, cast a mysterious and almost holy glow on the walls of the cavern.

Address: Conca dei Marini
Cost of Entry: The average price of the boat ride is 5€.
Opening Hours: Daily from 9am – 4pm. However, tours may be cancelled in the event of bad weather

"Destroyed along side Pompeii by the famous volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79A.D Herculaneum is now a famous archaeological site."

Much smaller than Pompeii, but unlike Pompeii, Herculaneum contains wonderfully preserved buildings. Swamped by a torrent of liquid mud and debris the once thriving residential seaside town soon had its beauty drowned. Occupied by the ‘aristocracy’ of Roman society drawn to the area by the splendid climate and desire to abandon the noise of large cities, Herculaneum was filled with elegantly villas. These buildings where not destroyed during the disaster, but instead when excavations started fantastic discoveries were made, the mud had actual helped preserve the town as a sort of enormous fossil, buildings indeed often kept intact. This is a splendid chance to see two storey Roman villas, beautiful mosaics, frescoes, pieces of carbonised furniture and other objects used by ancient Romans.


"Vesuvius is neither the highest nor the most dangerous volcano in the world, but the eruption that buried Pompeii and Herculaneum has made it one of the most famous"

Vesuvius, mainland Europe's only active volcano, stands as a geological marvel and an icon of historical significance. While it may not claim the title of the highest or most dangerous volcano globally, the eruption in 79 AD, destroying the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum under layers of volcanic ash, has made Vesuvius among the most renowned. With a history marked by approximately one hundred eruptions, the latest recorded in 1944, this 1,281-meter stratovolcano offers a captivating ascent, reachable after a brisk 30-minute walk. Once at the summit, visitors are treated to breathtaking views into the crater, across the Bay of Naples, and on the distant horizon, a poignant glimpse of Pompeii.

Salerno is an ancient city and comune in Campania (southwestern Italy) and is the capital of the province of the same name. It is located on the Gulf of Salerno on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city is divided into three distinct zones: the medieval sector, the 19th century sector and the more densely populated post-war area, with its several apartment blocks.

Human settlement at Salerno has a rich and vibrant past, dating back to pre-historic times. The site has been one of the most important and strategic ports on the Mediterranean sea, yielding a rich Greco-Roman heritage. It was an independent Lombard principality, Principality of Salerno, in the early Middle Ages. During this time, the Schola Medica Salernitana, the first medical school in the world, was founded. In the 16th century, under the Sanseverino family, among the most powerful feudal lords in southern Italy, the city became a great centre of learning, culture and the arts, and the family hired several of the greatest intellectuals of the time. Later, in 1694, the city was struck by several catastrophic earthquakes and plagues. After a period of Spanish rule which would last until the 18th century, Salerno became part of the Parthenopean Republic.

In recent history the city hosted Victor Emmanuel III, the King of Italy, who moved from Rome in 1943 after Italy negotiated a peace with the Allies in World War II, making Salerno the home of the "government of the South" (Regno del Sud) and therefore provisional government seat for six months. Some of the Allied landings during Operation Avalanche (the invasion of Italy) occurred near Salerno. Today Salerno is an important cultural centre in Campania and Italy.

A patron saint of Salerno is Saint Matthew, the Apostle, whose relics are kept here at the crypt of Salerno Cathedral.
