The Coastline of Italy in and around the Gulf of Naples
Both Italy’s western coastline along the Mediterranean Sea and its eastern shore along the Adriatic are visible here.
The Adriatic coast (above), only partially visible below the clouds, shows a green algal bloom. Further south, some of the peaks of the Apeninnes are capped by snow.
Below, the Mediterranean shoreline is very clear, with almost no clouds and only a slight algal bloom above the Gulf of Naples.
The islands of Ischia (left) and Capri (right) can be seen offshore. Just inland, Mount Vesuvius rises near the gulf, between Naples and Salerno.
