The Bay of Naples was a center of Greek civilization and the Roman version of California before becoming the birthplace of modern tourism. At its heart, in the shadow of majestic Vesuvius, lies crazy, chaotic Naples – the most vibrant and passionate city in Europe and home to the world’s best coffee, pizza, pasta and ice cream. Incomparable Pompeii and the Sorrentine peninsula, Italy’s most dramatic stretch of coastline, are within an hour’s drive of Naples, while the fabled island of Capri is but a short ferry ride away. This new edition of Cadogan’s bestselling guide goes further, too, covering all of mainland southern Italy, from Naples to the wild mountains of Calabria, the mighty castles and cave cities of forgotten Basilicata, and the whitewashed villages and cathedrals of exotic Puglia.
Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls, Cadogan's inimitable writing duo, are widely acclaimed for their unique blend of eloquent, entertaining cultural comment and practical, discerning travel advice. To date, they have over 45 Cadogan guides to their name – regional guides to France, and series on Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey. Dana's lifelong passion and talent for travel writing has been the subject of a feature spread in the Independent newspaper. The two have frequently worked on freelance articles for major travel magazines, as well as appearing on the BBC Radio Four program, "Excess Baggage."
