Travel in Campania for holidays
Nature and relaxation in Campania.
Campania has some of the most charming places of Italy within its boundaries: Vesuvius, the imposing volcano that is surrounded by full, flourishing vegetation, the Amalfi Coast and the Sorrento Peninsula, with their wonderful beaches and captivating fisherman’s villages. There are also the region’s islands, treasures of nature and architecture surrounded by crystal clear seawater.
The coastline boasts some famous places, full of charm, such as Positano, the setting of the “summer” Dolce Vita in the 1960s, Ravello, a place loved by artists and intellectuals such as Greta Garbo and Richard Wagner, Vietri and many others too. The most famous islands are Ischia, which has one of the greatest number of thermal spas in the world and Capri, with its three stacks and timeless charm.
In addition to the sea and these romantic towns, we also suggest you spend some time on nature tours, visiting, for example, the Punta Campanella Nature Reserve, in the Bay of Ieranto and the famous Emerald Grotto.
Food and Drink in Campania
Whenever one talks of Neapolitan and Campania food, it is just impossible to not start with pizza, the dish invented around the end of the 19th century by a Neapolitan cook and which then became famous worldwide. Pizza, the real thing of course, is made using two typical Campania products: San Marzano tomatoes and fiordilatte mozzarella cheese. Pizzas can be tried plain or with other ingredients on top. There are other tasty seafood dishes prepared along the coast and on the islands, such as “pepata di cozze” made with mussels and desserts such as the famous “pastiera”. And of course we cannot forget the famous, locally-made Limoncello di Sorrento, a delicious lemon-based liqueur.
