Footprint Full-Colour Guide - Naples & Amalfi Coast
Set in the most spectacular and fertile bay imaginable, Naples oozes deadly-gorgeous dollops of history, culture, food and volcanism. Napoli is not just one mad city with an addictive rhythm. Campi Flegrei - the Phlegrean Fields - fizz with fumaroles, springs and Graeco-Roman spas. Feel the forces of nature around Vesuvius and the archaeological sites, walking on the crater rim of mainland Europe's only active volcano and exploring AD 79 time capsules at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae. Towering limestone cliffs shelter cute fishing villages, limpid emerald-blue inlets, fairytale castle gardens and majolica-domed churches on the Sorrentine Peninsula and Amalfi Coast. Serenity, glamour and shimmering beauty abound on the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida. All this and more is waiting to be explored with Footprint's first full-colour guide.
