Holidays in Campania
Location and orientation
The Campania region consists of the Italian provinces of Avellino, Benevento, Salerno and Beneveto, and the capital of the region is the metropolitan city of Naples. Other important cities in Campania are Amalfi, Salerno, Positano and Salent. The Amalfi Coast in particular is considered one of the most beautiful coastal stretches in the whole world and has already served as a backdrop for numerous Hollywood films. The region owes this, of course, to the wonderful Tyrrhenian coast from the mouth of the Garigliano River to the Gulf of Policastro, which glistens turquoise blue in the sun.
Festivals in Campania often revolve around culinary specialties - like the Sagra del Pesce Azzuro (Blue Fish Festival) in Sapri.
Top 3 travel tips
Ischia is the largest island in the Gulf of Naples and is an elevation of volcanic origin. With its thermal springs and year-round mild climate, it is the ideal place for a hiking holiday in the middle of beautiful nature. Climb the hills on the island or walk to the Castello Aragonese in Ischia Ponte. The fortress lies on a huge rock directly in front of the coast and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. To get to Ischia, you must take the ferry from Naples.2. The legendary Amalfi Coast
Who hasn't seen the pictures of picturesque villages nestling on the steep slopes and glistening in the most beautiful colours with the glittering water? The Amalfi Coast is the south coast of the Sorrento Peninsula and named after the city of the same name. The 40 kilometre stretch of coast along the Costa Divina (divine coast) between Vierti sul Mare and Positano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Drive along the panoramic road and stop in one of the villages to spend a night in a holiday apartment and watch the breathtaking sunrise over the sea.3. A visit to the buried city of Pompeii
Just over half an hour from Naples lies one of the most exciting archaeological sites: Pompeii. The ancient city on the Gulf of Naples was completely buried by an eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. - but almost perfectly preserved under the volcanic ash. Today, after decades of work, Pompeii is one of the best preserved ancient city ruins. On the huge area there are different routes, which you can walk according to your mood. Starting with the compact fast tour, during which you will visit the most important buildings in about two hours, up to the day-long excursion for history lovers. By the way, it is most beautiful in spring or autumn, when the sun no longer shines so brightly.
