  • Campania

    by Anthony Parente

    With one of the most magnificent coastlines in Europe, Campania offers tourists breathtaking views making it a popular destination among travelers. For years travelers including the rich and famous have spent their time basking on the enchanted islands of Capri and Ischia or enjoying the magnificent views that cascades along the Amalfi Coast.

    Just as breathtaking as the beauty and charm, Campania offers some of the most impressive collections of antiquities found in Italy. In Naples you will find the National Archaeological Museum, which is one of the most important and leading archaeological museums in the world. Paestum, which is south east of Naples, is home to one of the oldest and best preserved Doric temples in the world and in Cumae you will find the Sibyl caves. Least we forget the remains that can be found at Pompeii and Herculaneum from the destruction caused by Mount Vesuvius on August 24, 79 AD.

    Campania is located in the southern portion of Italy. It is bordered by Lazio to the north-west, Molise to the north, Puglia to the east, Basilicata to the south-east and the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west.
