Italy is a dream come true. A place of art and romance, history and modernity, food and wine, and...possibly, you!

Located on the Sorrentine Peninsula, just across the bay from Naples, Sorrento, Capri and the Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful destinations in southern Italy, if not the world. Overlooking the Isle of Capri and Mount Vesuvius, the charming little community of Sorrento is famous for its lemons and limoncello and is a great base to explore the spectacular Sorrento, Capri and Amalfi Coast attractions.
Many visitors see Naples as little more than an unruly porthole to fabled destinations like Capri and the Amalfi Coast, but look beyond the grime and graffiti and you'll uncover a city of breathtaking frescoes, sculptures and panoramas. Naples, Italy's third largest city and the birthplace of modern Pizza, is one of its oldest, most artistic and most delicious.
