Tivoli

A little less than 30 km from Rome, Tivoli in its mere 68 km of extension it houses two UNESCO world heritage sites and a park that belongs to the Italian Environmental Fund (FAI) and three fascinating Villas to visit. In addition to, of course, numerous churches and other archaeological sites as is customary in Italy.The most visited Villas are Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana.

Villa Adriana dates back to the times of the Roman Empire, considered by the magnitude of its architecture one of the most important remnants of ancient Rome. Villa Adriana is located six kilometers from the city center. For those who like history and ruins, you will surely be amazed by the magnitude of the 120 hectares of preserved ruins. Among the most impressive monuments are the Maritime Theater, the Canope, the Philosophers' Room, the Thermal Baths and the Imperial Palace. A real immersion in the Roman world.

Villa d'Este, inspired by Villa Adriana, is a palace considered a World Heritage Site. Built at the request of Cardinal Ippolito d'Este, in 1550 it is a true festival of fountains and water that comes straight from the River Aniene through underground pipes that cross the streets of the medieval city. Of the fountains, the most interesting is the Fonte do Órgão, where at certain times of the day an organ installed inside plays music using hydraulic power, a marvel of engineering.

Naples

By train it takes just 1 hour from Rome to Naples. The third largest Italian city, typical of southern Italy with its bustling center full of delicious cafes and pastry shops on the hills of Vomero, accessible via cable car, from which you can contemplate the blue of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Not to mention the old part and the volcano Vesuvius, still active, known to have disappeared with the city of Pompeii in 79 AD.

The National Archaeological Museum is a tip for those looking for a historical tour, it is where most of the frescoes and objects recovered from Pompeii and Herculaneum are located, as well as a huge and fantastic collection of art and history.

And the offer of art and culture in Naples doesn't end there. In the Chapel of Pio Monte della Misericordia is a work by Caravaggio, called Seven Acts of Mercy. In the Sansevero Chapel, a sculpture called Cristo Velato, which seems to come to life. The city's cathedral (Duomo), like a good Italian church, is one of those gigantic and impressive ones. And the Complesso Museale di Santa Chiara is a monastery with a beautiful patio, with colorful tiles.

Another ideal tour to do in Naples is to explore each of its alleys, which in addition to being quite narrow, tend to get very crowded, revealing the lovely part of a somewhat messy Italy. One of the most must-see there is Via San Gregorio Armeno, which is full of shops and boutiques.

But the main tip is to stop at a pizzeria or restaurant in the region and try the pizza from Naples. In fact, it was there where this wonder of Italian gastronomy was born.

Pompeii and Herculaneum

Once in Naples, visit the ruins of Pompeii. Devastated by an eruption of the volcano Vesuvius (still active) in the year 79, today it is a large open-air museum of one of the greatest tragedies in human history.

At the time of the Pompeii eruption, it had about 20,000 inhabitants and was located about 8 km away from Vesuvius. Herculaneum, smaller and richer, had 4 thousand inhabitants and was about 7 km away.  

The first waves, warmer, reached Herculaneum. The city was completely buried by layers of lava, rocks and ash that in an instant killed any organic matter present and evaporated all the water. This is how all the wooden structures have survived there, until today. Herculaneum was below 19 meters of volcanic material.

Pompeii was buried below “only” five meters. The force of nature was slightly less, as it was not lava that absorbed Pompeii, but ash and gases at high temperatures.

The people who were still in the city died instantly from the heat, but their bodies were preserved in the position they were in because of the ash. The excavators came up with the idea of preserving these “shells” with mortar, and this is what sets the sinister tone of the visit to the city.

Amalfi Coast and Capri

The Amalfi Coast is 290 km from Rome and just 50 km from Naples airport. It is a 60 km stretch of Campania coastline between Sorrento and Salerno. Along the road, practically carved into a cliff, are historic towns such as Amalfi, on the edge of the Tyrrhenian Sea, where the Grotta dello Smeraldo (a cave that forms a dreamlike landscape with a lake of greenish waters), Ravello at the top of the mountain with an incredible view of the coast. In addition to a beautiful village that slides down the slope to the beach, great for bathing and which, in front of the waterfront, sprout charming restaurants with outdoor tables: Positano.

Capri has been a coveted destination since the time of the Roman emperors — Octavian and Tiberius built palaces there. Due to its proximity to the Amalfi Coast, it can be visited on the same trip. There you can take a relaxing boat ride around the island, if you prefer, hire the tour that makes a stop at the Blue Grotto, a natural cavity approximately 60 meters long and 25 meters wide whose water has a transparent blue tone with silver reflections.
