Southern Italy twin centre: Amalfi Coast and Cilento

Start in Massa Lubrense along the Sorrento Peninsula

With picture postcard pastel-hued villages, iconic views across to Capri and designer shopping in Positano, it is not surprising that a holiday along the Amalfi Coast finds its way on to so many holiday wish-lists. Wander between pocket-sized fishing towns and spectacular gardens with a view or sit and watch the world go by in the local piazza.

The Relais Blu clings to the cliffs of the Sorrento peninsula with spectacular views of Capri island from the pool and sun terrace. All rooms are decorated in a contemporary and very unique style and are sea-facing with floor-to-ceiling windows to let in that swoon-inducing ocean panorama.

and make tracks for the Cilento Coast 

Pick up your car hire from Sorrento or have it delivered to the hotel and head south to Pisciotta in the heart of the Cilento Park.

Medieval Pisciotta has a hilltop location with breathtaking sea views.  Below the town is the beach of Marina di Pisciotta, and beyond that a seemingly infinite choice of 100km of sandy beaches and hidden coves.

The Unesco Cilento National Park is Italy's second largest, offering a huge range of historical, cultural and natural interest.

The Hotel Marulivo, formerly a 13 century convent, has been stylishly refurbished. Linger over breakfast or drinks on the hotel's spectacular panoramic terrace for truly exceptional views.

Hiking the Amalfi Coast: the Path of Gods

Hiking the Amalfi Coast: the Path of Gods

The name is high-sounding, but fits perfectly: "Path of Gods". After all, the divinities of Mount Olympus evoked by this stupendous excursion route that unites the Amalfi Coast with the Sorrentine peninsula could not be satisfied with printing their heavenly footprints on a less worthy earthly path.

In fact, the gods in question are those who, according to a legend, crossed the ten kilometres of the panoramic road to give a hand to Ulysses, intent on not letting himself be ensnared by the melodious and deadly flatteries of the Sirens, inhabitants of the nearby archipelago Li Galli.

How to visit Mount Vesuvius independently

Vesuvius, together with Etna and Stromboli, is one of the three active volcanoes in Italy.

It is considered one of the symbols of the city of Naples, although in reality it is a real scarecrow for those who live in its immediate vicinity: its presumed first eruption, which occurred in the very distant 79 d. C., destroyed Pompeii, Herculaneum and the ancient cities of Stabiae and Oplontis.

Today, it is still considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in Europe due to its explosive eruptions. Nevertheless, it is the favorite destination of many visitors from all over the world.

Let's see then, through the steps of the following guide, how and why to visit Vesuvius
