Bay of Naples and Southern Italy Paperback
This title explores the home of pizza, seeking out the pleasures of chic Positano and the Amalfi Coast, where Mount Vesuvius towers over the fantasy garden frescoes of Pompeii.
It visits the ravishing landscape of Capri and takes a trip round vibrant Naples, with its world-famous restaurants and nightlife. 'For most of us today, the biggest attraction of all in the Mezzogiorno, (Italy's 'Noonday') is obvious enough.
Even in Roman times, the land around the Bay of Naples was Campania Felix - fortunate Campania, the richest and most beautiful province of Italy, its seaside villas the chosen abodes of the Roman elite.
History (not to mention the earthquakes and volcanoes) has given it plenty of hard knocks in all the centuries since, but the hints and fragments of paradise are still present.'
