The natural harbour of Bonifacio
Sailing into Bonifacio is quite simply a spectacular experience – a steep, shimmering white chalk cliff, a small town that appears to be floating magnificently on the plateau and a fjord-like bay which gives way to an elegant marina. Those who wish may explore the area’s medieval upper town or take a stroll along the promenade.
Capri: magic island and dream destination
Ever since the German painter August Kopisch discovered the Blue Grotto 190 years ago, Capri has been considered the epitome of romantic Italy. With its magical light, its pleasant climate and rugged rocks, the island beauty in the Gulf of Naples still instills a yearning to travel. After a stroll through the narrow streets and a visit to the boutiques, stop for a cappuccino in the Piazzetta, and you will have the best
view of the island’s hustle and bustle.
The scenic Amalfi Coast
Violet bougainvillea in front of pastel pink facades; houses clinging to the cliffs like swallows’ nests; a grand open staircase looking out onto the glistening turquoise sea – Sorrent, Positano and Amalfi sometimes seem too good to be true. But the colourful, romantic fishing villages are real. In 1997, the UNESCO declared the Amalfi Coast a World Heritage Site.
UNESCO World Heritage Site Paestum
The mighty columns of Poseidon’s temple still soar into the blue Campanian sky much like they did 2,500 years ago. Together with the basilica and the Temple of Athena, they form the Doric heart of Paestum. Until its rediscovery in 1750, this Greek and later Roman colony had been hidden in the marsh and today is among the best preserved temple sites in Europe.
