Campania (Italy)

Campania is a region located in the south of Italy, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is bordered by the provinces of Lazio, Molise, Puglia and Basilicata. The capital is Naples.

Campania includes an archipelago that consists of three main islands: the islands of Ischia, Capri and Procida, which are famous worldwide for their natural beauty, and then two smaller islands: Vivara and Nisida.

There is a large historical heritage to be discovered in the five provinces of Naples, Avellino, Caserta, Benevento and Salerno, which have important archaeological sites and monuments. There are the archaeological sites and monuments of the Female Anjou, the Cathedral of Amalfi, the Faraglioni, the Baths of Telese Oplontis and the ruins of Herculaneum. There are also towers, forts, castles and fortresses to visit, in recognition of the region’s glorious past.

Then there is the famous city of Benevento, also known as the magical city as, according to an old story, there are a few spirits still wondering around the city giving gold coins to children.

But the most famous story is the one about the famous witches of Benevento, whose origins are lost in the mists of time. Yet it still catches the special attention of historians and anthropologists. Such practices are said to date back to the cult of Isis, and to the times of the Lombards who performed certain pagan rites when they occupied the city.

Campania is the land of sun par excellence. It has about thirty resorts which are known all over the world for their beauty, shaped by the fire of the same volcano which destroyed Pompeii in 79 AD.

The region offers beautiful resorts, unforgettable trips, facilities such as aquariums, amusement and adventure parks, water parks, archaeological parks and so forth.

And don’t forget, the five star hotels overlooking the sea, ideal for those who wish to spend a romantic weekend with their loved ones.

The excellent regional cuisine, rich in flavours and colours, is mother to the most famous dish in the world: Pizza, the true Neapolitan one!

Tourists can only fall in love with this region, enjoy a mild climate and treat themselves to an unforgettable vacation.
