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.
Rinella is a small Italian village that is located on the island of Salina which is one of the Aeolian Islands. The island's full name is Santa Marina Salina and lies around 120 km to the north east of Palermo and 70 km to the north west of Messina. The island is well known for its black sandy beaches and its caves and also for its square which was used as a filming location for the movie "Volcano".
There are three areas on Salina: Santa Marina on the eastern coast, Malfa to the north and Leni to the south west and from Leni heading down to the coast is the village of Rinella. Located above the village of Leni is Valdichiesa in the island's centre. Other small villages on Salina are Capo Faro, Pollara and Lingua.
