The Romans already knew this was a happy land and that’s why they called this region ‘campania felix’. A holiday in Campania indeed guarantees the ultimate happiness; beautiful seaside resorts, clear blue sea and amazing panoramas.
The region is known for the famous, breathtaking Amalfi Coast. If you drive here you can see many picturesque towns built on the mountain side such as Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi. The quaint, much-visited island of Capri is also part of Campania and in the slightly quieter Ischia you can relax in one of the thermal and mud baths. A special experience!
In the midst of all this is the coastal city of Naples, the capital of the region and a world to itself. The authentic and vibrant city, bursting with history, is just like a movie set! Naples is located at the foot of the volcano Vesuvius which, as you can see, is just huge. Narrow streets, honking scooters, laundry hanging to flutter and lively markets with the sea in the background make the atmosphere great.

Take a trip from Naples or Sorrento by boat to the beautiful Capri and not only the journey is wonderful. The Blue Grotto is one of the island's natural beauties, famous for the play of light that is created on the water.
You can’t leave Naples without having eaten a pizza. This international dish was ‘invented’ right here! You can choose from many flavours, but the pasta is always good. Bon Appetito!
If you are looking for fashionable clothes, antiques, furniture or household items, Napoli offers a wide range of shops. The Neapolitans attach great importance to craftsmanship and if you want to see them at work you can find them in the streets around the centre.
The National Park of ‘Vallo di Diano Alburnums’ is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The park, with white sandy beaches and crystal clear sea, is an oasis of tranquillity.
