Splendours of Capri & Amalfi
The frozen streets of Pompeii remind us of a simpler time, when mornings were spent at the busy market and a hard day’s work was rewarded with a soak in the thermal baths and a rustic dinner of fish and olives. Walking the ancient pathways of Capri and the sprawling gardens of Ravello, it is easy to imagine that this kind of existence is still possible.
