From the Port in Marina Tricase, close by is Supersano, where travelers can admire the ancient dolmen, set within an evocative natural environment. Melpignano, a must for lovers of music and dance, is not too far afield either; Melpignano is known as the "City of the Taranta," and it is one of the stops for the "Night of the Taranta," one of the most symbolic folk cultural events in Europe.

Naples - The Vesuvian Cities


27.7 Km

The "Vesuvian Cities" of Herculaneum, Torre Annunziata (ancient Oplontis) and Pompeii are a favorite of tourists from around the world. These three cities, destroyed by volanic eruptions, have been partly restored from the time they were discovered and excavated. The ruins of Pompeii are almost entirely open to visitors, who flock to the magnificently-frescoed Villa of Mysteries. Herculaneum and Torre Annunziata also boast the Roman vestiges long buried under the magma, including the astounding Temple to Campania Felix.
