NOCERA SUPERIORE
Early Christian Baptistery

A work of inestimable historical and cultural beauty. One of the very few examples of the Baptistery, very well preserved. A treasure from which it is possible to draw an infinite source of inspiration.
The "Rotonda" is a monumental Byzantine baptistery from the 6th century AD, of very high historical and artistic value. Unique example of a double ring Baptistery, second only to Santa Costanza in Rome. After all, the ancient Nuceria Alfaterna was also called "Urbula", the little Rome. The exterior, the result of various renovations in subsequent periods, with its "aedicule" at the entrance does not let you imagine the wonder of the interior. The large marble baptismal font has an octagonal shape and is surrounded by 15 pairs of reused marble columns connected by arches on which the dome rests directly. Exceptional architectural daring.

AMALFI COAST
Amalfi

The curves of Paradise. A wonderful example of a Mediterranean landscape with extraordinary natural and cultural value. An area of great beauty and fascination, characterized by houses overlooking the sea and terraces. Everywhere the lemon gardens, which throughout the year dot the dark green of the foliage on the sides of the mountain with yellow that plunges towards the sea and merges with the colors of the water, which along this coast constantly change between blue, l indigo, the emerald.
World Heritage Site (UNESCO)

HERCULANEUM
Archaeological Park of Herculaneum

The same cruel fate of Pompeii. Destroyed and buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Herculaneum experienced a period of great splendor, because many patricians, attracted by the happy geographical position, the salubrity of the air and the safety of the ports built their villas in these places. But, unlike Pompeii, wooden structures and furniture have been preserved here: therefore what has been brought to light by long excavations is of exceptional interest for documenting uses, customs, habits and art of the Roman age.

CASERTA
The Royal Palace of Caserta

The exceptional monumental complex of Caserta was built by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli at the behest of Charles of Bourbon, in the second half of the 18th century, in order to rival Versailles and Madrid. The site consists of the sumptuous Palazzo with the park, gardens, a wooded area, the Carolino Aqueduct and the industrial complex of San Leucio, intended for the production of silk fabrics. Also of great value is the Monumental Complex of the Belvedere of San Leucio born from the dream of King Ferdinand to give life to an autonomous community of workers based on egalitarian, meritocratic principles and on a certain gender equality. An exceptional physical element of connection between the Royal Palace and the Royal Colony of San Leucio is the Carolino Aqueduct, which constitutes a real infrastructure serving not only the palace and gardens but also the ironworks, mills and manufacturing industries arranged along the path.
