Are you planning a visit to southern Italy, to the Campania region? An ever popular part of Italy with tourists, the region is home to the bustling and vibrant city of Naples, the relaxing island of Capri, the stunning towns and villages of the Amalfi Coast and, of course, the archaeological area of Pompeii.
Naples has received some bad press over the years but its hustle and bustle make it unlike any other Italian city, or indeed the world. Naples has a vibrancy which will make you feel alive as you wander the streets and take in it sounds and smells. For lovers of art and culture, Naples is bursting at the seams. Don’t miss one of Naples largest squares, Piazza del Plebiscito, home of Naples’ Royal Palace, the city’s ancient castle, Castel Nuovo, the Cathedral of Naples and Naples National Archaeological Museum. Of course these are just some highlights of Naples and to be sure you don’t miss anything it would be wise to hire a private guide.
Do you want to learn about the Roman Civilisation? Visit the popular site of Pompeii. The Roman city of Pompeii was covered in lava after the Vesuvius erupted in 79 a.D., but the ash which fell on the buildings and their inhabitants made it possible to keep the city intact over the centuries! Nearby you will find the Ancient Roman town of Herculaneum. Whilst smaller than Pompeii, its closer proximity to Vesuvius has actually left the site more intact and we would definitely suggest a visit for all those interested in archaeology and Classical Civilization.
The amazing Campania area also offers a lot of opportunity for fun and relaxing. The many towns perched on the Amalfi Coast, Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Sorrento and of course the pristine island of Capri are among the most beautiful sea destinations in Italy and are really worth a visit.
