This is the land where the deep South of Italy truly begins. Campania is the region that houses wonderful world wide known sceneries like the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento and Capri but is also doorway to other most beautiful locations of Southern Italy like Calabria with it's wonderful rugged coast, Sicily and it's romantic and historic towns like Agrigento and Taormina, and also just few hours away from Apulia and it's characteristic Trulli Houses or Basilicata with beautiful towns like Maratea.

 

Campania features a volcanic sea of the deepest shade of blue lined with miles of dramatic coast and dotted with such lovely islands that almost seem to be tiny, brightly coloured jewels.

 

Sharp contrasts don't miss in this region going from the heat, noise and urban sprawl of troubled Naples to the calming qualities of Sorrento, from the romantic islands of Capri and Ischia to the undiscovered coastline of Cilento.

 

One typicality of Campania will never miss throughout the whole region and that's the warm welcoming as well as the calm qualities of it's people.

 


Climate and Environment


 

The mild climate, the enchanting countryside, the exuberance and the fervid imagination of its people, for over twenty-five centuries have made this region one of the most charming and sought after holiday resorts in the world.
Throughout its history the Etruscans, Greeks, Romans, Normans, Angevins, Spanish, French and Austrians arrived here in armies as conquerors, only to become captured by the sweet intensity of its colours, perfumes, flavours and songs of this happy land.

 


Food & Wine          Other Regional Info


 

The most famous regional speciality is of course the "Pizza", the simple tomato and basil topped pizza that has become over the years a world wide known dish and with which many are familiar. Many have tried to imitate the original, but as Neapolitans say "It is best eaten in its hometown: Naples".

Campania is also very famous nationally for its buffalo mozzarella cheese, used in so many classic Italian dishes, it is very similar to the usual mozzarella cheese and can in fact be confused with it but the "Mozzarella di Bufala" has a fuller and sweeter taste.

Naples and all the towns around the coast are also very well known for the seafood dishes made with freshly caught fish along the coastline of the bay of Naples; fresh clams to make a tasty "Spaghetti alle Vongole".

As many of the Southern Italian regions Campania has it's own liquor known world wide: as Calabria has it's "Cedro", Campania has it's "Limoncello". Both liquors are made in the same way, produced by the external part of the fruit, they never miss in a house hold and are often pride of the ladies of the house that make it with their own hands. Both are best served ice-cold, Cedro is made with the fruit with the same name and only grows in the "Riviera dei Cedri" in Calabria, and Limoncello is made with freshly grown lemons.
