The Amalfi Coast is a stuinning stretch of the Italian coastline that is also offers a glimpse into geographical phenomenon, unique to this region. A visit to the Sorrentine Peninsula and Amalfi Coast presents an opportunity for geographical studies including plate tectonics, natural hazards, coastal and tourism management.
Set on cliff tops overlooking the stunning Bay of Naples, Sorrento is busting with natural beauty and southern Italian charm, and is a superb base for exploring the surrounding area.
Visit Mount Vesuvius national park and the Phlegrean Fields to study the volcanic landscape, then take a trip to the ancient site of Pompeii and Herculaneum to understand the devastation of lava and pyroclastic flows.
Drive along the Amalfi coastal road or walk along the Path of the Gods to learn more about the dramatic coastline.
Tourism is also vitally important to the region and Sorrento is a prime example of an Italian resort at its finest. This region of Italy is a great option for your next geography trip!
