Positano is a small town on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, just south of Naples. This part of the Italian coastline is marked by steep cliffs that seemingly plunge into the depths of the turquoise Mediterranean Sea so it truly is amazing how a town could ever have been built on these precarious slopes. Positano today is a charming town with cheery pastel-coloured houses stacked atop one another. The views of the town and the sea are simply breathtaking and these two spots sure provide some of the best views from above. Imagine a room with one of these views!

One of many great things to do in the Vatican City is to climb to the top of St. Peter’s Basilica, that’s if you’re not afraid of narrow, curvy staircases! The view from the top of St. Peter’s Square and Rome is phenomenal!
The Nottolini aqueduct (named after its architect, Lorenzo Nottolini) was built in the 19th century to carry water from the springs on Monte Pisano to Lucca in the Tuscan region of Italy. With its 400 arches stretching more than 3km, it is a wondrous sight. There’s a path along the aqueduct which is great for a walk or a bike ride. Eco guide organises lovely tours in and around Lucca, including walks and bike rides along the aqueduct.
The famous Roman city of Pompeii was completely destroyed by an eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79.
