Marvel at the spectacular churches and mosaics of Palermo before continuing on to Naples, with its restored museums and monuments. Visit the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum, and explore Paestum, with its majestic temples, its tomb paintings, and its excellent museum. In romantic Sorrento, on the Amalfi Coast, follow in the footsteps of the eighteenth-century travelers for whom there was no more beautiful place in the world.
