I took this when I visited the Amalfi Coast in Italy... one of my favorite spots I’ve had the privilege to see in person. The ocean, the colorful roof tops of the houses along the shore, the weather, the little shops and walkways, the company... just simply gorgeous what a beautiful memory and experience
The Gulf of Naples (Italian: Golfo di Napoli; Neapolitan: Gurfo 'e Napule; Latin: Crater), also called the Bay of Naples, is a roughly 15-kilometer-wide (9.3 mi) gulf located along the south-western coast of Italy (province of Naples, Campania region). It opens to the west into the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered on the north by the cities of Naplesand Pozzuoli, on the east by Mount Vesuvius, and on the south by the Sorrentine Peninsulaand the main town of the peninsula, Sorrento. The Peninsula separates the Gulf of Naples from the Gulf of Salerno, which includes the Amalfi coast.
The islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida are located in the Gulf of Naples.The area is a tourist destination, with the seaside Romanruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum at the foot of Mount Vesuvius (destroyed in the AD 79 eruption of Vesuvius), along the north coast.
Along with the island of Ischia and gulfs of Pozzuoli and Gaeta, local waters are home to varieties of whales and dolphins including fin and sperm whales.
One of the most beautiful things I’ve had the honor of seeing in person. Capri (and on my birthday, no less) was a dream come true.
Italia, sei sempre nel mio cuore. I’m feeling all kinds of travel nostalgia today!
