“See Naples and die”, they say: Blessed with beauty, wine and an unparalleled artistic legacy, Campania is magical
Blessed with beauty, wine and an unparalleled artistic legacy, Campania’s a region that largely lives up to its fame. Stretching along the Tyrrhenian Sea, from the mouth of the Garigliano River to the Gulf of Policastro, this region offers a mild, fantastic climate, immense beauty of the coasts, the richness of its art and history, and the love for food: this is a fantastic location for travellers, including the Gulf of Naples, Capri and Ischia, the Vesuvius, gloomy and mysterious, loved for its beauty and feared for its power. Sorrento, a town that spreads over a terrace of tuff, seems to tumble into the sea. Music and entertainment, sun and sea, history and culture: these are pivotal elements of this land, which poets claims to be the last sight somebody should experience before dyeing – “see Naples and die”. Paestum; Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Torre Annunziata, the Chartreuse of Padula, the Royal Palace of Caserta are all pieces of History and Art that, alone, are worth a visit.
