Italy

The ancient history, breathtaking landscapes and the warm climate makes Italy a remarkable country to visit.

 

 

Below you will find information and images about several locations of Italy from the areas of Rome, Venice and the Campania region.

 

Rome
Rome is probably one of the most fascinating cities of Europe that you can visit and in our opinion, the most beautiful. It is so rich in history and culture and its ancient structures are simply breathtaking.
 

Ostia Antica
Ostia Antica was once a thriving harbor of Rome and after it was slowly deserted due to different circumstances, it was actually forgotten for centuries. The advantage is that it was not rebuilt on nor was looted, so you can enjoy the city in its true form.
 

Via Appia Antica (Appian Way)
Here you will enjoy an idyllic landscape and see the old gravestones, mausoleums and interesting structures that were placed here over the centuries.
 

Venice
If Paris is the city of love, then Venice must be close behind in 2nd place. You cannot help but feel charmed when walking through it and crossing what seems like hundreds of quaint and sometimes historical bridges.
 

Carneval in Venice 2017
If you could choose any time to be in Venice and get the most out of the city, then February is an excellent choice. Not only is the whole city in what seems like a good mood, you can get glimpses of some most magnificent costumes.
 

 

 

The Roman Amphitheater at Santa Maria Capua Vetere
This is the second largest amphitheater after the Colosseum in Rome and is located at the site of the ancient city Capua known now as Santa Maria Capua Vetere which is not to be confused with the modern city of Capua close by. For a small fee of 2.50 Euros you can walk all around and underneath the amphitheater.
 

Mount Vesuvius
When you visit this famous volcano, expect a breathtaking view over Naples, Pompeii, Herculaneum, the Tyrrhennian Sea, Capri, Ischia, Procida and the vast landscape of Campania. The area around it is a national park and a highly frequented attraction by tourists.
 

Solfatara Volcano
This volcano is located at the Phlegrean fields not too far from Naples, Italy. This volcano is interesting to visit because of the different natural activity going on.
 

Paestum
Paestum is located in the province of Solerno in Campania, Italy and is a UNESCO World Heritage Sight since 1998. Here you will find the ruins of the ancient Greek city plus 3 large and well preserved Greek Temples which are open to the public to walk on and admire.
 

The Island of Capri
Already when you are in Naples, Italy and look across the bay, you can see the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida. There are ferry ships that take you from the harbor of Naples to these destinations.
 

 

 

Naples
When visiting the Campania region of Italy, consider going to the city of Naples and spend a day there. It is a lively and loud city and should not be missed when in the area.
