Your holidays in Campania: all you need to know for your next stay

One of the most appreciated Italian regions, Campania is a land of tremendous contrasts but it never loses the unique fascination roused by the culture and landmarks which made it famous all over the world.

When you think about Campania, Naples, its regional capital, soon flashes through the mind: a large, handsome city overlooking the homonymous Gulf, it cherishes many evidences which testify to its ancient history and multicultural traditions and boasts lush landscapes which overlook the Tyrrhenian Sea and are backed by the ridges of Mount Vesuvius.

Not to be missed are the wonderful Islands of the Campanian Archipelago, that is to say Ischia, Capri and Procida, privileged holiday destinations for elite tourists which have always been the background of many films and society news since stormed by renowned personalities from all over the world, who are attracted by the beauty of their beguiling, translucent sea and the fascination of their charming fishing villages.

The Amalfi Coast, which snakes from Positano to Amalfi, Ravello and Salerno, is a privileged holiday destination because of its enchanting natural landscapes characterized by precipitous rocks falling sheer to the sea and small urban settlements situated on the top of steep slopes overlooking the coast.

Not to be missed are the ancient vicissitudes which made Campania famous during the Greek and the Roman Ages; precious finds can be found in Paestum, an ancient city which once belonged to the Magna Graecia, and in the archaeological sites of Pompei and Ercolano, which were both destroyed during the disastrous volcanic eruption of '79.

Scattered with attractive highlights, Campania is the ideal holiday destination for those interested in art, nature and culture.
