The south-west region of Campania is one of Italy's most popular, home to iconic towns like Sorrento and the dramatic cliffside resorts that make up the Amalfi Coast, including lofty Ravello and the impossibly picturesque Positano. The islands of Capri and Ischia have been welcoming visitors since Roman times and both offer something unique; Ischia's thermal spas and sandy beaches make it perfect for relaxing, while Capri's glamorous reputation attracts the rich and famous.
Thousands flock to Campania every year to enjoy the sunshine, views and Mediterranean cuisine but there are still parts that are yet to be touched by mass tourism. Cilento offers an insight into traditional Italy with sleepy towns, wide sandy beaches and rolling hills. The region's capital, Naples, also needs to be explored and you can enjoy everything from archaeological sites and historic monuments to lively piazzas and excellent shopping.
Napels Airport (NAP) is the gateway to Campania. Flights from the UK take approximately 2 hours 45 minutes and depart from Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London Gatwick, London Luton, London Stansted, Manchester and Newcastle.
The region of Campania offers its visitors a range of culinary delights with traditional Neapolitan pizza, a variety of pasta dishes and abundance of fresh seafood providing the basics. Start the evening with an aperitivo of Campari, and finish with a limoncello made from the sweet lemons that grow along the Amalfi Coast. These fresh delicious flavours combined with the stunning scenery make mealtimes in this region a genuine delight.
