The Italian city of Naples, or Napoli as it is also called, is located in the Campania region of the country and lies on the Gulf of Naples, on southern Italy's west coast. The city is located in an enviable position between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei. The Roman ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, which were destroyed the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, are located close to the city as is the city of Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Also located close to Naples are the former parts of the Roman naval facility of Portus Julius, namely the port towns of Pozzuoli and Baia which are both to the north of Naples. The city is adorned with medieval, Baroque and Renaissance churches, castles and palaces and has long been an important centre for the arts and architecture. In the 18th century, Naples went through a period of neoclassicism, following the discovery of the remarkably intact Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.
The port of Naples is home to several ferry, hydrofoil and SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) catamaran services, linking numerous locations in both the Neapolitan province, including Capri, Ischia and Sorrento, and the Salernitan province, including Salerno, Positano and Amalfi. Ferry services also operate to Sicily, Sardinia, Ponza and the Aeolian Islands.
Casamicciola is located on the north coast of the island of Ischia which is in Italy's Campania region, at the northern end of the Bay of Naples. The island, which is of volcanic origins, is within easy reach of Naples by both conventional ferry and hydrofoil. The island is popular with tourists for its sandy beaches, crystal clear sea and for its thermal springs which have had spa resorts built around them. The island seems to be especially popular with German tourists and as a consequence many of the island's signs and notices are also in German. The north coast towns such as Ischia Porto, Ischia Ponte, Casamicciola Terme, Forio and Lacco Ameno are the towns that most visitors head for. Of these, Ischia Porto boasts the best bars, Casamicciola the worst traffic and Ischia Ponte and Lacco Ameno the most appeal.
Hydrofoils and ferries make their way back and forth to mainland Italy in Naples from the pretty port of Casamicciola.
