A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Setting the Tone in Lovely Naples
Arrival in Naples. Approaching the old city, you find it is a place that wears priceless treasures for a day suit. You discover at your leisure and with no rush, royal palaces and heritage sites that speak of the complicated Neapolitan history. It is a charming city full of contradictions and precious art. Let’s say it puts you in a capricious mood.
Neapolitan cuisine is best understood on the move. It is not so much about the food but the experience. You move through the streets of this charming city and sabour sweet sfogliatelle and inventive snacks from a cuoppo di fritture. It only opens your appetite for the real deal: Neapolitan pizza, a dish so often imitated it has become a worldwide staple. To understand just how delicious it can be, you had to taste it from the source. Read more
Capri holds an irresistible allure for those with a higher sensitivity. Artists, writers and personalities once made it their refuge. Unfortunately, today it has fallen prey to tourist. You take a different approach, one that can give Capri all of its purity and adventurousness back: you cruise around it and play an Italian caprice, you land where and when you please, and explore the island with absolute freedom.
A Mediterranean Fantasy
The sun is setting in the West and all the Mediterranean catches the colours of sunset. It is not a mirage, but rather a lovely vision for the privileged traveller. The shadows elongate and dance with the sea. Rocky towers that beackon out of the waters, lighthouses of the gods, abode of sirens. Your private boat approaches the faraglioni. This night you sleep under the auspices of Venus and Poseidon.
