Moods of the Gulf of Naples
Naples - the alluring but tattered city known for its vibrance and frizzled edges. It’s the home of the ancient city of Pompeii and indulgent cuisine being the culprit for dried pasta and yes, the birthplace of pizza! It’s the jumping off point to the Sorrento Peninsula and the seductive island of Capri.
Further south and you’ll find yourself along the Gulf of Salerno where the famed towns of Amalfi and Positano preside. Leaving mainland Naples will bring you to the intoxicatingly mysterious Flegrean Islands – Ischia, Procida, Vivara, and Nisida. A maritime tradition here dates back to Homer during his crusade sailing across the Tyrrhenian Sea and later prominent islands during the Roman Republic. Sailing and seacoast life is the backbone of their society celebrated by local residents and transient sailors alike.
