AMALFI COAST AND NAPLES

Description
The Amalfi Coast offers a sun-drenched Mediterranean escape, and a photographer’s paradise. Long considered Italy’s most scenic stretch of coastline with its pastel-hued villages, the coast is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. We’ve chosen Ravello as our headquarters, certainly one of the most romantic and beautiful small towns in southern Italy. Perched 1000 feet above the azure coast,  Ravello is blessed with lush gardens, quiet lanes and commanding views. We’ll stop into the once powerful maritime center of Amalfi and the popular town of Positano, however, the real photographic gems, in our opinion, are the quieter small villages of Atrani, Furore, and Praiano, and climbing up to the overlooks in the evening hours. The sunny Island of Capri also tempts us for a midweek visit, and we’ll round out the trip with a visit to Pompeii for a dose of Roman history. If you consider Naples as an unruly port city compared to other famous destinations like Capri, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast you are making a mistake. Naples is Italy's third largest city and one of its oldest, most artistic and most delicious. Its historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its museums boast some of Europe's finest archaeology and art, and its collection of royal palaces and castles make Rome look positively provincial. Naples is also one of Italy's culinary heavyweights, serving up the country's best pizza, pasta and coffee, and many of its most-delicious seafood dishes, street snacks and sweet treats. Certainly, Naples can feel anarchic, tattered and unloved. But look beyond the grime and graffiti, take out your camera, and you'll discover a city filled with interesting neighborhoods, breathtaking frescoes, sculptures and panoramas of bewitching street life, of spontaneous conversations and profound humanity. Welcome to Italy's most unlikely masterpiece.

Day 3  Capri - Faraglioni - Capri Piazzetta - Gardens of Augustus
On day three we set sail by hydroplane ferry for isle of Capri. Capri is an enchanting and picturesque island made of limestone rock. A favorite of Roman emperors,of rich and famous,of artists and writers, it's still one of the Mediterranean's must-see places. It’s most famous for its Blue Grotto, but honestly, Capri has such a breathtaking coastline, that it’s hard to really decide which side of the island is your favorite. Weather allowing, we'll take a boat ride along the east coast of the island where we'll explore and photograph its beautiful coastline including the iconic Faraglioni. We'll lunch in Capri Piazzetta, high above Marina Grande and in the afternoon we'll take a bus tour of the island for the classic shot of the sea and the Faraglioni. Then head to the Gardens of Augustus. Close to the center and only steps away from the Charterhouse of San Giacomo, the Gardens of Augustus are comprised of a series of panoramic flower-decked terraces overlooking the Faraglioni on one side and the Bay of Marina Piccola and Via Krupp on the other. After an amazing day of photography on the Isle of Capri, we'll return to Naples by ferry for dinner and a well deserved rest.

On day five we take an early morning train from Naples to the village of Sorrento where we board a bus for an amazing drive along the stunning Amalfi coast to the seaside village of Positano. In 1953, John Steinbeck wrote that Positano “Bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone”. After lunch in Positano, we return to Sorrento, a small village wonderfully located over white steep cliffs and offering a fantastic view of Naples bay. Sorrento lies on a Tufa terrace and is enclosed by impressive rocks on limestone mountains. After an amazing day of photography, we'll return to Naples for a well deserved rest.

Late afternoon and early evening are among the best times to photograph these haunting ancient ruins. (Includes transport, admission and guide).
