A Journey to the Gulf of Naples

Naples, located at the Vesuvius volcano, and its surroundings were praised by many travellers throughout history. There is a famous saying that states: “See Naples and die!”. The german poet Goethe famously expressed it would be beautiful, “even if a few more Vesuviuses were to rise in the neighbourhood”. Picturesque is also the coast of Amalfi close by and the island of Capri. The magic happens in the evening though when the sun is setting in and the sky turns red, the Gulf of Naples being one of my favourite spots in the world for sunsets.

Sunset in Lisboa

Sometimes there is a certain light accompanied by a mood you associate with a city or a place. Speaking for myself that is certainly true with Lisbon, Portugal. At dusk the earthy tones of the city turn into warm yellowy and orange colours. There is no better place to enjoy the sunset though than at the banks of the river Tejo with a view at Belém on one side and the glorious bridge of the 25 de Abril on the other, watching sailing boats disappear into the Atlantic Ocean.
