Amalfi Coast, Italy

5 of 15

Ischia—a
volcanic island in the Bay of Naples inhabited since the time of the
Phoenicians—is the launching point for flights over some of Italy’s most famous
attractions. You’ll soar above the craggy island of Capri, the Amalfi Coast,
Naples, and the remains of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the two towns buried under
ash when Vesuvius erupted in 9 B.C. Then get up close to the vengeful mountain
itself, which is still active, although it hasn’t erupted since 1944.

The Ride: The tour with SAM
Helicopters
passes over Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the summit of
Vesuvius.

$525
per person for 50 minutes based on six passengers ($3,150 total).
