Built and natural heritage – places
Take the funicular, Funicolare Centrale, and discover the highest parts of town with breathtaking views. Get off the funicular at last stop and follow the indications towards Castel Sant’ Elmo, a fortress castle built in the 14th Century and for long time used as a prison, today offers the most amazing bird’s eye view of Naples, the semicircular bay with it’s deep blue sea, all the cities along the coastline, the Sorrento peninsula and in a nice day even Capri Island, and of course the Vesuvius volcano as a silent witness of the centuries that have passed by. This is surely one of my favorite places of Naples, where the extraordinary view is completed by the warming touch of the sun, the gentle caress of the sea breeze and the silence that lets you hear your soul (and that you will find in no place on the fuzzy streets of the city).Timea-Anca Stan
What to do there:
Within the Amalfi Coast there are several beachy towns that are relatively close to each other and very easy to get to via public bus. Of these towns, the ones that I visited are Sorrento, Amalfi, and Positano, and I also took the short ferry ride to the island of Capri. Though there are many more towns similar to these all along the coast, for a short trip, I would recommend each of these spots to capture the full Amalfi Coast experience.Sophie Mendel
