The region of Campania features some of the most renowned attractions of Italy including the Amalfi Coast, Naples, the sun-splashed islands of Capri and Ischia, and the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Deemed by UNESCO as an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, the Amalfi Coast is a stunning combination of great beauty and drama: coastal mountains plunge into the sea in a vertical scene of precipitous crags, picturesque towns and lush forests. Sorrento, Amalfi, Ravello, Vietri sul Mare and Positano are some of the precious pearls that make up a "necklace" of small towns on the coast.
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, just off the toe of Italy's boot. It has been a crossroads of cultures for 3,000 years, a history reflected in its diverse architecture, cuisine and ancient ruins. On Sicily’s eastern edge is Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano and Taormina is a charming historical city with one of the world's greatest views.
