Amalfi

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful throughout Italy and on this church tour you will get the chance to see Cloister of Paradise.

Pompeii 

Pompeii is one of the most famous places in Italy, when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 BC, covering the city in ash, freezing it in time. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one that has to been seen with your own eyes.
