The Charm of the Amalfi Coast

SEP. 15-23, 2021
Naples, Ravello, Amalfi, Salerno, Paestum, Vietri sul Mare, Sorrento, Isle of Capri, Pompeii, Herculaneum

Italy’s Amalfi Coast has been luring travelers, artists and romantics for centuries. Treat yourself to the region’s scenic splendor during a seven-night adventure based in Vietri sul Mare. We’ll encounter the magnificent coastline with its colorful villages and towering cliffs as we visit Ravello and Amalfi. Then enjoy a nautical perspective of the region during a cruise to lovely Salerno. Discover the Isle of Capri, a celebrated resort since the time of the Roman Republic, and take a fascinating historical tour of Herculaneum and Pompeii, frozen in time by the mudflows of Mount Vesuvius. Relax amid lemon-scented breezes in beautiful, cliffside Sorrento, see Paestum’s fascinating Greek ruins and explore the medieval streets and wonders of Old Naples, including the National Archaeological Museum. Plus, indulge in the region’s culinary heritage during an authentic pizza lunch. Along the way, delight in first-class accommodations, expert-led discussions, and an extensive meal plan featuring wine with dinner on this small-group adventure.

UCLA Faculty on Tour

Kathryn Morgan
Department of Classics
Kathryn Morgan is chair of the UCLA Department of Classics and teaches courses on ancient Greek literature, mythology and culture. Her most recent book focused on the praise poetry of Pindar (5th c. B.C.) and the way poetics and mythology merge to create a positive image of monarchy for Pindar's royal patrons. Morgan is currently beginning a new project on how the historian Thucydides and the philosopher Plato used historiography to advance particular and competing views of the world. She has a longstanding interest in the interactions of ancient Mediterranean civilizations, particularly in the realm of mythology, and regularly teaches courses that explore the movement of mythological narratives across space and time, from stories of the great goddess to the complications involved in investigating the myth of Atlantis.
