Archaeological sites of incredible significance, Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried in the ashes from Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Wander between the magnificent ruins of stalls, houses, baths and temples in this Roman era city. Time stopped suddenly, but it left the remarkable evidence of a Roman city and its various everyday activities to posterity. Some of the murals and mosaics can still be seen in situ, but the majority are kept at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples, like the countless artefacts found on site.
On a tufa terrace extending into a turquoise sea, the peninsula of Campania facing Capri is scented with orange trees, lemon trees and orange blossom. Among cliffs, coves and elegant sprawling villas, the landscapes here are breathtaking and characterised by vineyards and olive trees on terraces adapted for the terrain. Any escape here will be remembered for the villages of Sant’Agnello, Meta, Massa Lubrense and Sorrento, whose historic centre is well worth a detour.
Sorrento is indissociable from its famous limoncello. This lemon liqueur, made from lemon zest, alcohol, water and sugar, has a lovely yellow colour reminiscent of beautifully sunny days! Only lemons from the peninsula and surrounding area can be used in the production of this liqueur. Enjoy chilled and in moderation over the summer!
Enjoy the sunset on the terrace which drops steeply to the sea, and let the cocktails served by our barmen and the sound of the waves intoxicate you.
You can almost hear mermaids singing...
