Italy - July 26th, 2009

This coast-to-coast image of Italy reaches from Naples on the Tyrrhenian Sea (below) to the Gargano Peninsula on the Adriatic Sea (above).

Of particular interest near Naples are Mount Vesuvius, located slightly inland in the center of the Gulf of Naples coastline, and various offshore islands including Ischia (left) and Capri (right) at either end of the gulf.

Moving across to the other coast, of note on the Gargano Peninsula are Lake Lesina  (left) and Lake Varano (right) along the northwestern shoreline. Greenish sediments framing the coastline highlight the thin strip of land and dunes separating the two lakes from the sea.
