Campania is a multicolored chest rich in treasures with a warm climate year round that combines wonderful cuisine, antique and varied traditions, a rich history, and a fascinating sea with its gulfs and isles such as Capri, Ischia, and Procida.
UNESCO has declared several areas here to be World Heritage Sites: Pompei, Ercolano, Torre Annunziata, Reggia di Caserta, the historic center of Naples, the Royal Palace of Costiera, and the National Park of Cilento and Valle di Diano with its archaeological sites at Paestum and Velia, and the Padula Charterhouse, just to name a few.
The undisputed king of this region is Vesuvio which “watches over” the capital and its surroundings. Naples, the capital, is a richly fascinating city full of life and contradictions, in a mix of cultured and popular aspects that make it unique in the world and a longstanding destination of illustrious travelers.
Be sure to pay a visit to the seaside city of Sorrento and its coastal villages.
The sea and the varied beaches permeate the life of this territory which has much to offer from any point of view. A beautiful region to be experienced throughout the year: beaches, sea and culture, as well as wellness and spas in the hot spring parks in Ischia and Campi Flegrei, and lots of folklore and wine and food can be found on the Strade del Vino and elsewhere.
Every year music lovers gather in Costiera Amalfitana for the Ravello Festival, but there are many world renowned traditional festivals held here as well such as the San Gennaro Miracle ritual in Naples, the Rites of the Holy Week in Sorrento, and the Lucerne Festival held in the medieval village of Somma Vesuviana.
