Located on the western coast of Italy, facing the Thyrrenean Sea, is the most densely populated Italian region.
A place that offers everything one can imagine from the artistic and architectural masterpieces to the beautiful nature of the mainland, from the crystalline water of the islands to the rugged coastline and the gastronomy, all combined with a very favourable weather.
Campania is served by the International airport of Naples “Capodichino”, a short distance away from all the major attractions of the region. Travellers may also decide to fly to Rome “Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci” airport and then transfer to Naples.
The train is also a valid option to reach Naples, thanks to the excellent railway system.
The heart of Campania is of course the city of Naples, a fascinating and lively centre that somehow managed to preserve the spirit of the Middle Ages, hidden in the countless monuments of the old town centre, a proper open-air museum. Just outside the city are the Archaeological Areas of Pompeii and Herculaneum, protected by the UNESCO for their uniqueness.
From the Gulf of Naples, one of the most visited places in Italy, it is possible to reach the famous islands of Capri and Ischia, ideal places to relax during the day and enjoy fun and entertainment at night.
Among the most famous sights of the region are also the Amalfi coast and the Sorrento Peninsula, with the sea-facing terraces carpeted with citrus, olive trees and vines.
The whole region can boast many valuable historical monuments, like the ruins of Paestum temples, the best preserved Greek monuments on the Italian mainland, and the Royal Palace of Caserta, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and a real masterpiece of architecture and decoration, both for its astonishing interiors and the huge splendid park.
Also worth a visit are the centres of Castellammare di Stabia, Pozzuoli and Sant’Angelo.
