Campania Italy

Italian: Campania

In Campania you can immerse yourself deeply in southern Italy, with everything that goes with it: the enchanting nature, the lively cities, the dreamy islands and the delicacies that nature creates.
The Amalfi Coast is known worldwide for its vertiginously steep slopes to which the colored houses are glued. Naples is also known as the most typical city in Italy. Not to forget the island of Capri as one of the most famous islands in the world.
Discover with us this dreamy land on the Tyrrhenian coast, which made a name for itself in antiquity with the spectacular eruption of Vesuvius and whose buried city of Pompeii gives us deep insights into life in ancient Rome today.

Campania in Southern Italy

The most beautiful places and landscapes in Campania in Italy

Naples is the capital of the Campania region and the third-largest city in Italy after Rome and Milan. It has about 1 million inhabitants and is the capital of the Campania region. The city is built on yellow tuff. This was already used in ancient times by the Greeks to build their temples and walls. Some caves served as places of worship and burial. An excursion into the caves in the “underworld” of Naples is very interesting. From Naples you can take the train to Sorrento and on to the Amalfi Coast. On clear days you can see the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida.

Enjoy the lively life in the alleys that were already laid out by the ancient Greeks and try the piazza, which was invented here.

Salerno has a real Mediterranean flair, there is a sunny climate with pleasant temperatures all year round. Life takes place in the alleys and cafes of the old town. A walk on the well-tended “Lungomare” is particularly beautiful and relaxing. A place to see and to be seen.

The tourist attraction of Caserta is the 18th century royal palace of the Bourbons. The Reggia di Caserta Palace is one of the largest Baroque buildings and is known as the Versailles of Italy. The huge castle park with its garden art in the baroque style is particularly impressive.

With its fantastic location above the steep cliffs, Sorrento offers a wonderful view over the Gulf of Naples. Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast are famous for the magnificent large lemons from which Limoncello is made, a particularly tasty liqueur that should not be missing after any meal.

Amalfi is a friendly and inviting little town at the foot of the mountain. The heart of the pulsating coastal town beats on the cathedral square with its small shops and nice cafes.

The picturesque coastal town of Positano with its colored houses literally climbs up the mountain on the Amalfi Coast. In the alleys with the boutiques you can buy Positano fashion.

Ravello is located high above the sea in a unique atmosphere with a breathtaking view. The beauty and freedom of Ravello inspired Wagner to design the set for the opera Parsifal. Villa Rufolo is located on a rocky promontory, a magnet for visitors and music lovers.

The Sorrentine Peninsula in Campania is known for its huge lemons, which are eaten freshly squeezed as spremuta, stirred with ice as granita, with alcohol as limoncello or sprinkled with a little sugar as a dessert.
The places on the Sorrento peninsula are popular because of their favorable location for excursion destinations in the direction of Naples (Vesuvius, Pompeii, Herculaneum), the Amalfi Coast and the islands of Capri and Ischia.

Imagine a vacation on the Amalfi Coast, in a dreamlike landscape that will amaze you. Always surrounded by the home smells of lemons and flowers, the view of romantic bays and the crystal clear turquoise sea. In the evening you can enjoy spaghetti alle Vongole at sunset in one of the romantic restaurants by the sea.

The picturesque port of Marina Grande welcomes guests to Capri. The little town Capri on the hill casts its guests under its magical spell with the beautiful parks, the pretty alleys and the sunsets over the sea. A wonderful place in Campania for the most romantic wedding of your life.

Numerous thermal springs create summer on the island of Ischia all year round. A vacation on Ischia heals both body and soul. Even the big politicians know this and spend their holidays in the hidden coastal towns and the most beautiful thermal baths on Ischia.

Phlegraean Fields, Seething Force of Nature Beneath your Feet

The best way to see volcanic activity is in the Solfatara crater in Pozzuoli. Rising fumaroles and sulfur springs steam from the crater and the ground is sometimes quite hot.

Vesuvius – Mount Vesuvius Looms over Naples and Pompeii

Mount Vesuvius looms 1277 m over the nearby sea. You can go up to an altitude of 1000 m by car, from there you can reach the two peaks of Monte Vesuvio and Monte Somma on foot. The crater of Monte Vesuvio is active, the volcanic soil makes the entire land extremely fertile. There are three harvests a year. Wine is grown on the slopes of Vesuvius.

During the worst eruption of the volcano Vesuvius, the rich Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were completely wiped out and buried under a high layer of ash along with their inhabitants. Today, thanks to the excavations, these cities have risen and can be visited as an open-air museum.
