Campania is one of the regions in Southern Italy and stretches along the Tyrrhenian Sea, from the mouth of the Garigliano River to the Gulf of Policastro. The mildness of the climate, the beauty of the coasts, the richness of its art and history and the love for food make Campania an enjoyable land. The journey starts from the sea, uncontested king of the region, with its intense colours, its coasts rich in bays, coves and rock faces, as well as the islands of Capri and Ischia, true natural masterpieces with even more charm by the flourishing Mediterranean vegetation, interrupted by some small yet pretty towns where to spend your holidays, amid the history and traditions of Campania. How can we forget the monument of nature that dominates this region: the Vesuvius, dark and mysterious, loved for its beauty and feared for its power. Then Naples, famous worldwide for the intensity and passion of its music, that just like the town, mingles cultural and popular, sacred and profane, joyful and melancholic aspects. And Sorrento, a town that lays on a terrace of tuff falling sheer to the sea. In this view of paradise, indented and inaccessible coasts alternate to small and hidden beaches, creating a unique scenery. Here, the work of man was grand. The roughest areas are now made up of a series of terraces sloping down to the sea, used for the cultivation of citrus, olive trees and vines. These gardens give off heady scents of oranges, lemons and orange-blossoms. Music, sea, entertainment and nature, but also history and culture. Visiting places like Paestum, Ercolano, Pompei, the Chartreuse of Padula or the Royal Palace of Caserta is an unforget experience. The provinces of Campania are: Naples (region capital), Caserta, Benevento, Avellino and Salerno.
