Pictures from Southern Italy

My favourite destination in Italy is Sorrento, a city south of Napels. It is the perfect starting point for day-trips to Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, Napels, Positano and Amalfi. Sorrento has also a couple of small beaches, but personally I prefer taking a short bus-ride to Positano to enjoy the beautiful beach located in the centre of the city.

Sicily has a dry climate and is a perfect holiday destination in the spring and autumn. The smaller islands around Sicily are also well worth a visit. My favourites are the beautiful island of Panarea and Stromboli with its active vulcano which erupts approximately every 15 minutes. In Sicily you will find archeological sites from the Roman and Greek periods, and in some cities and villages the Greek influence is still visible.

The photos presented were taken during two visits to Sorrento and one visit to Sicily. More pictures will be added when available.
