Around the imposing Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples was woven in Greco-Roman antiquity one of the most fascinating civilizations in Europe. From a beautiful and privileged cliff on the outskirts of Sorrento (Hotel Megamare) we will explore the ancient and philosophical city of Elea, home of Parmenides, crossing the Natural Park of Cilento, where the Cartuja de Padura is located, the impressive Paestum, Patrimony of the Humanity, and Corporal Palinuro. The Amalfi coast beckons us with beauties like the little villages of Positano, Ravello or Amalfi, literally hanging on the reefs of the Mediterranean coast, facing Capri, for many travelers the most beautiful place in Europe. Pompeii and its enigmatic frescoes of the Villa of the Mysteries, as well as the Villa of Poppea will take us to the Rome of the first century, whose roads and palaces will evoke its glorious past. The end of the trip will culminate in Naples, in the Archaeological Museum and in the labyrinth of its mysterious, fascinating and decadent streets, not without first letting ourselves be enchanted by the magical beauty of the Antro de la Sibila (Eneida, book VI), just outside the city.
