Campania is a key administrative region of Italy, on the south-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, along with the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west, extremely rich in history, home to 10 quintessential UNESCO sites, including Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Amalfi Coast, the Historic Centre of Naples, the 18th-Century Royal Palace at Caserta.

A brief history about Campania

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.

Campania today

The Campania region is home to many superb destinations. Naples, its gateway, is a modern historical city, energetic, sometimes excitable but always proud, home to a bustling port and to some of the world's most delicious food. Neapolitans prioritize their unique quality of life, always making time for an impromptu espresso at the local bar; choosing produce at a street market; ready to chat and discuss feverishly the day's headlines and football scores with friends or even strangers at a cafe in the sunny piazza. The stunning Amalfi Coast is nearby with its beautiful blue sea, a fairytale setting with pretty little villages clinging to the rocks: one can visit the village of Amalfi itself, shaped like an amphitheater, colorful Positano with its fascinating boutiques, or the clifftop town of Ravello, famous for its superb villas and gardens. Explore the countryside and the renowned wineries of Campania, discover the wine-making process, tour the cellars and enjoy tasting sessions, sampling some of the best regional wines.
