What if this summer you go back in time to those cheerful and worry-free days of your youth? What if you indulge yourself in a summer lived to the fullest, as only the Italian dolce vita knows how? You, the sun and a Vespa in its natural habitat. Or simply the summer as it should be lived, at least once in a lifetime.
This return to your adolescence starts in Naples, a city that has the chaos as its natural balance and seems used to living on the brink of a new and definitive tragedy. An irresistible city, capable of resisting anything. Even the departure of Maradona! It is perhaps this somewhat eventual nature of tomorrow that makes today ever so present. Work here is only tolerated, still called fatica (fatigue). Life is to be lived passionately and centered on its little pleasures. Such as a cuisine of simple means, though exquisite flavors or the constant pursue of a perfect espresso (coffee) turned into an obsession. The streets are the stage where everything happens, where there is always something happening and anything can always happen. With the magnificent Bay of Naples and the Vesuvius on the background.
After conquering the top of striking Vesuvius crater and visiting the ruins of Pompeii, the spectacular Strada Statale 163 will become your lifeline. A road that can only be described as a 80km long balcony carved in Lattari mountains, populated by an impossible architecture that dominates the dramatic nature and breathtaking views over the bay of Salerno at every turn.
For last, how could you resist the irresistible glamour of Capri?
