Highlight #3
Capri : Sunshine, sea and sailboats
Capri has attracted the rich and the famous for years, and after watching this video by Jairo Villa, you'll see why: colorful sailboats, the cool waters of the Mediterranean and the world-famous Blue Grotto awaits.
Pompeii: Eerie and almost alive
Highlight #4
Pompeii: Eerie and almost alive
A terrible volcanic eruption led to Pompeii being covered entirely under rubble. So well-preserved that you can still walk down 1000-year-old Roman streets, see shops, cafes (and even a brothel).
