Campania, South of Italy
A land of history, traditions, culture and nature, Campania is one of the most beautiful regions of the Italian peninsula.
Many wonders are to be counted in this area: Naples, city of ancient and noble origins, the islands of the Gulf of Naples as Ischia and Procida, the small villages of the Amalfi Coast, such as Amalfi, Ravello and Positano, and the wild and unspoilt Cilento. From the famous Isle of Capri to the archaeological excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the imposing Vesuvius to the famous Spa of Ischia and yet the fantastic Reggia di Caserta, Campania is a popular tourist area of excellence. Campania is also famous for its excellent gastronomy, featuring typical products such as limoncello, buffalo mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes – all ingredients to compose the world famous pizza napoletana – and excellent wines such as the Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino and Taurasi.
