This region contains the controversial and enchanting charm of Naples with its Vesuvio. A town featured by so many contradictions and at the same time by many different facets with its alleys where the smell of pizza, coffee and sea are spread.

There are plenty of jewels in the sunny Campania, the route along the coast from Salerno to Sorrento: the Amalfi and Sorrento Coast, a series of rocky cliffs that plunge into the sea, with steep slopes and citrus groves, olive groves, vineyards along breathless views and bays. Then there are the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida that assure sea, sun and relaxing baths while Capo Palinuro and Marina di Camerata, immersed in the green of the natural park of Cilento, offer pelagic appeals featuring a number of different shades

From the nature to the archaeology of Pompei, Paestum, Ercolano and Campi Flegrei that have inspired the imagination of historians and travellers for many centuries. A treasure from the past is also the Royal Palace of Caserta – built to compete with Versailles - to be visited to breath the subtle taste of art and discover in the surroundings a number of places that  belong to other historical periods.


For example Benevento, a very old town with a number of very interesting monuments - the Traiano Arch, dating back to 114 D.C.  - just to mention one,  where “witches” used to gather. Then, Avellino, set in the valley of the river Sabato that has – saved in the earthquake of 1980 – the medieval core of the city with its castle’s remains. If you are fond of porcelain you can’t miss Capodimonte, in the province of Naples, with its famous museum, set in an ancient Borbonic palace.
