Campania is to be found near the bottom of Italy’s foot, meaning gloriously long and hot summers and pleasantly mild winters. It has 350 kilometres of coastline and it is where you will find the beautiful islands of Capri and Ischia. Its biggest city is Naples, a historic Italian harbour and reportedly the place where pizza was first made. Close by are many historic sites like Pompeii and Herculaneum and throughout the region there are Roman ruins to be explored. HouseTrip’s holiday apartments in Campania can also be found in the picturesque towns of Positano and Sorrento along the Amalfi coast.
Holiday in Campania
There is a good reason that the Amalfi coast features on so many “Must do before you die” lists because its beauty needs to be seen to be believed. For miles it curves around numerous corners providing breath-taking views of towns and villages built into the rocky coastline’s edge. Among the many coastline towns to visit from a beautiful holiday villa in Campania are Salerno, a lively port town and Amalfi itself, with its 13th century Arabic influenced architecture. Back in edgier Naples, there is much to see in the old city centre, which was awarded UNESCO Heritage Site status thanks to it having more churches than any other city in the world. A day trip to Pompeii or a boat ride to the isle of Capri are two once in a lifetime experiences, and both are worth risking the southern Italian heat for, though you can sample some local gelato to try keep cool. Another delicacy you should look out for is scialatielli, a pasta dish comprising of cheese, parsley and seafood, which is unique to the Amalfi coast and though the wine of Campania isn’t as well-known as those produced in Tuscan or Lombardian, the Piedirosso and Terradora wines are definitely worth trying.
