Inspiring Travel

The city of Naples is crazy-beautiful

On this journey you face several unbelievable, almost crazy things. Views across the city and the Gulf of Naples are extremely beautiful. The food you taste – seafood pasta, pizza, mozzarella –  reveal to you the beauty of the spot in its own way.

You sit in a restaurant and sip wine with fish. Later, you’ll be discovering the undergrounds of the city, marketplaces, lifestyle, and other things that will inspire you for the rest of your life.

Look at Goethe who reached Naples in early 1787:

“Now I can forgive anyone for going off his head about Naples…“

“I barely recognise myself and I seem entirely different person. Yesterday I thought, “Either you were mad before, or you are now.”

Positano beach

The Neapolitan Countryside and the Islands

You stroll between lemon gardens on Amalfi Coast. From time to time you win beautiful views, you see villages, and then enter them, the bay, meet people in the gardens. You love to taste local wine, limoncello liqueur, and dishes cooked from local products.

A private boat shows you the Amalfi Coast with Positano from the sea. You reach legendary Sirenuse islands and Faraglioni sea stacks, and later you land in the island of Capri. From the Imperial Villa and August’s gardens your eyes will sip unique beauty.

You are on this journey to inspire yourself in probably the most scenic place under the Sun. Before you couldn’t even dream that something similar like Naples and surroundings exists.

What makes this journey unique:

Care free travel

You travel across the Campania with no worries. In fact, you are here to inspire yourself, to enjoy your life. We take complete care of your trip and make it unforgettable. On the travel I’m present personally, I guide it,  so you are escorted all the time.

In Cap Posillipo with parks and villas you stroll as a savvy traveller until you reach the plateau where Neapolitan mouse surprised both Tom and Jerry with spectacular views to the island of Procida. A bit later you sail there to have lunch in the same fishing harbour where the Postino movie was filmed.

For you the trip runs free of worries. You meet local people that tell you their way of living Naples.

Hotels are all beautiful, the best local food, drinks, entrances, transportation,  … everything is included. Now you don’t need to care about bills, costs, money.

Panoramic view from Sorrento

A panoramic journey

Naples and its surroundings grow on you.

During your breakfast in Sorrento the entire Gulf of Naples reflects in your eyes and you look at the bay and the city of Naples from VesuviusYour dinner in Positano is enriched with a spectacular view across the city and the Gulf of Salerno

Your eyes admire probably the most wonderful region from different viewpoints. You sit at the top of cabriolet sightseeing bus, which meanders down the streets so you don’t miss a thing.

The journey is panoramic in another sense as well. You get a broad survey over the phenomenon that attracts legends and great people of all the times. 

Stories that you hear interlace the history, culture, climate, food, and legends. While you eat, stroll, chat, visit buffalo farm, sail,…, whatever you do Naples and its surroundings grow on you.

“It was the most beautiful travel in my life. Thank you for unconventional show of Naples and Campania, for particular panoramas, culinary experiences, … for everything that happened to me in the past days.”

Neapolitan Food

Culinary is an entire world that reflects the complexity of the place

Pasta, pizza, and mozzarella, along with other food, present you the destination in its own way. You taste local cheeses in a farm, sip the Amalfi Coast with limoncello and wine. Pasta embraces an important chapter from the history, and pizza another one.

Naples is also the best place to enjoy the seafood. You eat with new friends in panoramic restaurants and at the best pizza makers. Like a local, you try pizza with your hands, it’s beautiful. You attend the pasta making in a workshop, cheese-makers show you the way mozzarella is crafted while you make your own limoncello with help of a local, right in his lemon garden.

The appearance of the food that you are served with attract your attention. You appreciate the delicacy of the taste and the smell and other qualities. In a tavern, pizzeria, on the farm, the food is always of superior quality.

“Bravo Leon,

maybe someone from your readers thinks that you are  “full of it”. 

It is not true – visiting Naples and its surroundings with Leon is an amazing experience. 

A hello to everyone still on the fence. This was the best trip I ever had!”

History and culture

The Navel of the western culture

Due to an extremely beautiful landscape and mild climate, Naples was the chosen one to live in and work. Imagine long list of roman emperors, historians, nobles, legendary Sirens, writers like Cervantes, poems, dancers …

It surprises you when you learn that Naples is the navel of western culture. In fact, from Greek philosophers, through roman nobility, medieval and modern thinkers Naples supply the western world with philosophy, literature, music, or, if you want, with pizza and pasta.

Sophia Loren, Enrico Caruso, Bud Spencer are a few of them who born in Naples. Others originate here, like Bruce Springsteen, Ayrton Senna, Massimo Troisi,… I mean, travelling to Naples is not just to go somewhere.

Music

Siren Partenope blessed the city

The city of Naples is dedicated to music. On the journey you listen to local music, learn the meaning. Great songs and names originate there: O’ sole mio, Santa Lucia, Caruso, Bruce Springsteen, We involve local people to sing.

In reality everything related to music started with legendary Sirens. They were the first to choose Naples to become the city of music. The Islands of the Sirens are just off shore, we sail close, you hear the story of Odysseus.

A New Way to Explore the Mediterranean

Hi, my name is Leon.

The Salt of Life was born 15 years ago from a passion for experiencing life and the world around us. Landscapes, people, nature, markets, food …

… But it wasn’t always this way.

I spent years travelling the Mediterranean as a tour guide and manager for the mainstream travel agencies.

Sure I developed an intimate knowledge of the destinations, but it drove me crazy!

The programs the tour operators put together were dull and boring. I longed to show people the real Mediterranean. To share a glass of local wine and a smile and a beautiful sunset. But my hands were tied.

Trying to get the agencies to change was like banging my head against the wall. They refused to listen! I get it. Tour operators are part of an industry, of a system where you as a traveller are just a number. A business transaction.

I believe in a better way to travel.

A way to experience life as it is meant to be lived. To inspire and to be encouraged.

This is why The Salt of Life exists.

Local people and lifestyle

Travel in contact with a local life

On journey you meet local people and have a chance to chat with them. You learn about unique lifestyle that Neapolitans have. They can invent a new job every day and many have no regular job.

It is impressive how the intuition is the real power of the city, how the irony is the way to live easier.

At the local marketplace we’ll buy ingredients together and a local lady will prepare lunch in her house. Everybody is friendly and proud to be from Naples.

Full Moon

Evenings are even more special

This journey takes place during the Full Moon. The event makes evening and night scenery special. Marechiaro, one of the most beautiful Neapolitan songs, talk about the moonlight that spread across the sea and provoke even the fish to make love. You learn it.

Now you sit on a panoramic terrace and enjoy a dinner with friends, we sip wine, lemonade, water. Full Moon makes the moment special. It rises now and spreads the moonlight across the bay.

Pompeii and Vesuvius

Journay back for 2000 years

After 25 minutes of walking you reach the volcanic crater of Vesuvius. Now you admire the big hole that conduct versus the center of the Earth, on the other side a panoramic view embrace the Gulf of Naples and Naples itself, islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, and also the location of Pompeii, the city buried by same volcano some 2000 years ago and you are looking forward to visit during this tour.

You’ve entered Pompeii through the Porta Marina, that led from the city to the harbour. You try to imagine what has happened here in 79 AD, you see unburied streets, squares, villas,… all with the volcano of Vesuvius at the background.

Fishing boats in Positano

Amalfi Coast

Italian landscape from your dream

Amazing landscape, scenery worth to view and live from various perspectives. You’ve left panoramic Ravelo and now step down between lemon gardens to Amalfi. This middle-age Maritime Republic is a pretty town where you have a look at some shops, sip a coffee, take photos…

Another perspective is to reach the sea from the mountain pass. We take a panoramic road that meanders between vineyards and gardens. If you decide, you go down by bicycle. We arrange that for you.

The Amalfi Coast you now explore by boat. You admire villages, vegetation, the sea, and beautiful villas that took position far in ancient times.

Positano is a fishing harbour that developed on ruins of a roman villa. You’ve landed here with a boat and now sip a wine and wait for local pasta. Around you is unique scenery with like bee-house houses, fishing boats are scattered in a black sand, shops with local Positano fashion …

Naples

In your life it is a must-see

The city of Naples with the volcano of Vesuvius is a unique scenery set in front of a beautiful bay. Important people appreciated the spot, fell in love with the city. It is the capital of best food and coffee, you enjoy panoramas across the Gulf of Naples, you discover interesting elements.

This special tour helps you understand the complexity of the city of Naples. You learn what makes this city comic-tragic, about intuition, irony, you stroll local markets and meet local people, feel the special lifestyle. The world of pizza, music, street level houses, castles, and villas all make Naples an amazing city.

And when you enter the underground Naples with cisterns, cellars, park houses,… you don’t know anymore who is mad, you or the city of Naples with its population.

Flexibility and spontaneity

A sense of the current situation

Salt of Life travel is lean/flexible. We run it with sense. According to your feeling, weather, happenings, … we adapt it.

The program from this offer will be about the way/more or less as I present it. Anyway, only along the way it will get its final and unique shape.

This journey has spontaneous elements. That makes Salt of Life tours come alive.

I learned that it is better not to petrify you (a human) into a travel program, neither the world you travel in.
