Campania is part of the South of Italy, a region that mixes up perfectly the charm of the Tyhrrenian Sea that rules over this land, its coast made of bays, coves and rock faces, with an impressive history portrayed in beautiful cities and coastal towns. A holiday in Campania is simply unforgettable.
From the majestic Vesuvius and its uncontested yet so much admired power, to the beautiful city of Naples, where history and culture have found a most ideal compromise in enchanting its visitors, a holiday in Campania is amazing. Sorrento is a beautiful town that seems to “have it all down” with the sea, or more exactly, it seems like it almost tumbles into it, displaying some most astounding panoramas and hidden beaches. The preserved sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum which were destroyed by the Vesuvius in 79 AD are perfectly preserved to this day, a visit here from a last minute holiday home in Campania is a must. The Vallo di Diano and Cilento National Park have been a crossroad for cultures since ancient times, and at Paestum here you will get to see the three best preserved Greek temples in the world, namely the one of Hera, Neptune and Ceres. The Certosa of Padula is one of the biggest monasteries in the world, not to be missed when on holiday in Campania.
Campania is a region of old and new, of tradition and cosmopolitan, of joy and melancholy alike. Take Naples for example again, this city boasts traditions such as handicrafts, the art of violin makers, as well as numerous museums, churches, and a historical center that is said to be like an open air museum, one of the biggest ones in Europe actually. The Amalfi Coast, with resorts such as Sorrento, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and others is of an extreme beauty in itself, there are festivals and events here throughout the year, such as the Ravello Festival. The islands of Capri and Ischia boast great cultural attractions, and plenty of entertainment by night. Take a tour of the museums in Naples one day, then a tour of the churches here, enjoy the sea and the beautiful alleys of coastal towns, the arches and the squares, the atmosphere that sets a holiday in Campania high up there on a list of choices for holiday destinations.
Nature in Campania revolves around the queen here... the Tyhrrenian Sea. The coast dotted with beautiful beaches, the islands of Capri and Ischia, the coves, the rocky sites, the hidden beaches and the color of the water create a most mystical environment where one can find its peace, its dazzled imagination and... its fun times. The sea may be the main attraction on a holiday in Campania, but it is not the only one when it comes to the region's nature. Thus walking on old paths, some of them dating to even 2000 years ago, and visiting sites such as the mind blowing Pompeii and its preserved “future turned to ashes” by the Vesuvius, is an experience you will never ever forget. The sea, the culture, the nature parks, the traditions... a holiday in Campania is a marvel of an idea.
There is no point in even mentioning why you would wish to spend a wellness holiday in Campania... who wouldn't wish to be pampered and enjoy massages, baths, thermal waters and beautiful landscapes around? This being said, just think that from a holiday villa in Campania you are actually in a “volcanic territory”... for real. Thus thermal waters with healing properties “borrowed” from volcanic mysteries are not at all uncommon here, and they say the best ones are actually in Ischia. Then to be even more precise, try the Castellammare di Stabia, Pozzuoli and Sant’Angelo, renowned places for the "perpetual relaxing smile" of body and soul alike.
You are by the sea... and by nature parks... and by volcanic landscapes. All in all, when on holiday in Campania you are in a most diverse region. Being that the Tyhrrenian Sea is an almighty queen here, you can only imagine that a water sports holiday in Campania is more than possible, it's totally fun. Sailing, canoeing, swimming and sunbathing are a definite must on “fun list” here. Besides the “imperial” atmosphere of the sea, you may also encounter on your holiday in Campania the queen of social life and luxury, that is the island of Capri. Walk through its renowned piazzeta and enjoy its infinite charm. Or, if you're a free spirit that wishes to fly, as in for real fly, book a helicopter tour of the Bay of Naples and the ancient sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Wine Routes allow you to experience the sun-kissed nature of Campania in a most “blue blooded” way, just more towards... red, or white, or... why not? rose. The Amalfi Coast, the thousands of years old walking paths, the joy, the mystery, the fun, the melancholy... all within a holiday in Campania.
There's no time like... family time. So we say. And so does a family holiday in Campania will prove. From the inside of the Royal Palace of Caserta featured in the first episode of Star Wars, to the Solfatara Volcano that is like a big wide shallow crater, where there are bubbling mud pools (the Romans believed it to be the entrance to hell), from the Cave of the Sibyl to the Amalfi Coast and the islands of Capri, Ischia, you are all set up for a fantastic time in Campania. Don't miss the famous sites, Pompeii and Herculaneum, the National Railway Museum of Pietrarsa, the city of Naples with its Museo Archeologico Nazionale, the Villa Comunale and Aquarium, the Catacombs of San Gennaro, and so on.
The food in Campania is based on the same principle as its other fabulous attractions: tradition, impeccable taste, artistic approach. The Neapolitan pizza is famed throughout the world, as is the Risotto alla Pescatora. The Spaghetti con le vongole (clams) are a must try, and the Caprese Salad is a great antipasti. Totani e Patate, meaning potatoes and squid, will send you straight to culinary heaven, and Pesce all'Acqua Pazza with flavores of garlic, tomatoes and parsley, the fritto Misto di Mare and the Broccoli and Salsiccia complete the feel.
A holiday with pet in Campania is amazing, you cannot only take walks on the beach with Lassie, but also enjoy sightseeing and roaming through the pet-friendly cities of this region. Naples is a very much dog-friendly city, and walking in the countryside with Fifi wagging his/her tail by your side is not something you or your Smotch will soon forget. Make your holiday in Campania complete with a pet-friendly holiday home in Italy.Points of interest, a “must see” list in Campania:
