The Complete Guide to the Bay of Naples

Now that Naples seems to have a handle on its garbage problem, it is hoping that tourists start to make their way back to Italy’s “city by the bay.” Right on time is a service article from the U.K.’s Independent. The Complete Guide to the Bay of Naples gives the lowdown on getting there, visiting Pompeii and Herculaneum, and taking tours of Vesuvius, the Campi Flegrei “sulphurous sites,” and nearby destinations like Sorrento and Capri. As the article is geared towards the British traveler, some of the suggestions, such as for hotels, are a little on the pricey side for American tourists. But there is a lot of information here for someone who’s considering exploring one of Italy’s most evocative cities.

  1. I recommend skipping Naples completely.

    However, don’t miss Carpi, Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi, etc…

    Those are the real gems of the area.

    I’ll give you diamond as well. Visit Ischia!

    It is an Island of the coast of Naples.

    A must see…
