The region of Campania is an invitation to a wonderful journey! Naples, its gateway, is a fascinating and energetic historical city and home to some of the world's most delicious dishes. The Napolitans are proud of their quality of life, always making time for an impromptu espresso at the local bar or on a sunny terrace. The beautiful Amalfi Coast looks like something out of a film with its blue sea and pretty villages clinging to the rocks: Amalfi, shaped like an amphitheatre, the colourful and vibrant Positano and Ravello, famous for its beautiful villas and gardens. And last but not least, a visit to Vesuvius and the classified archaeological areas of Pompeii and Herculaneum, covered in lava and volcanic ash in 79 AD, is an unforgettable journey through time! Italy in all its splendour!
Visitors can go back in time and experience the history of past ancient civilizations living in Campania by walking through the archeological areas of the iconically famous Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, covered by lava and volcanic ash by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Visitors appreciate the perfectly preserved buildings: aqueducts, baths, theaters, basilicas, ornate frescoes, houses, and amazingly also organic materials, such as wood and clothes. This is probably as close as possible to a time tunnel experience into the ancient Roman Empire: visitors enter into ancient history and glimpse the everyday life of the Pompeii inhabitants, the moment frozen by the volcanic eruption. Pompeii is justifiably considered one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.
