Of Italy's southern regions, Campania is the most visited. It has much to offer, plenty of spectacular coast, intense history and everything from quaint small towns both inland and along to coast, exciting cities such as Naples or grand sights such as Caserta, the largest 18th Century palace built in Europe.
Over the many years of traveling to Italy we have spend a fair amount of time in Compania. Our most recent trip to Compania was in 2015when we stayed just outside of Naples. Our targets include the Pozzuoli area, Procida, and Casserta.
The Greeks, Etruscans, and Romans have all at one time occupied this region and the architecture across the region illustrates the richness of its history.
The Region is located along the west side of Italy, with the Tyrrhenian Sea along its coast. The region stretches from just north of Naples to south of the town of Sapri.
Paestum a major ancient Greek city. The ruins are famous for their three ancient Greek temples in the Doric order, dating from about 600 to 450 BC, which are in a very good state of preservation. We have been here a few times and will be returning in 2018.
Historically Ravello was part of the powerful Republic of Amalfi. Now it is a popular town due to its vistas, gardens and summer concerts. The top sights include Villa Rufolo, Villa Cimbrone and the Duomo.
