Italia Sorrento coast2

  1. 1. The Sorrento Coast is a jagged promontory that shores up the southern end of the Bay of Naples. This peninsula of hilly terrain ends abruptly at a cliff that plunges sheerly down to the Mediterranean sea. The entire coastline around Sorrento was a Greek colony during the period of Magna Grecia, the legendary site of Homer's sirens, before being conquered by the Romans who enjoyed the area as a summer playground. It has maintained a reputation as an exclusive resort destination ever since. It boasts a mild climate, gorgeous panoramas and citrus-scented air.   From the Sorrento Coast, views sweep along the bay to Naples, Mount Vesuvius and across the water to the island of Capri.
  2. 2. Castellammare di Stabiais is a comune in Campania region, situated on the Bay of Naples. It lies next to the ancient Roman city of Stabiae, which was destroyed by the Vesuvio eruption in A.D. 79. The castle, of the city it takes its name from, was erected around the 9th century on a hill commanding the southern side of the Gulf of Naples. It was restored during the reign of Frederick II of Hohenstaufen and enlarged by King Charles I of Anjou
