This region is characterized by the rich Mediterranean vegetation, into which villages, rich in history, art and traditions, are located; here you can spend an unforgettable vacation. And how can we forget the monument of nature that dominates this region? The volcano Vesuvius, dark and mysterious, loved for its beauty and feared for its power. Then Naples, famous worldwide for the intensity and the passion of its music that, like the city, mix cultural and popular, sacred and profane, joyful and melancholic aspects. And, sit on a tuff shelf overhanging the sea, there is Sorrento. In this view of paradise, jagged and inaccessible coasts alternated to small and hidden beaches, create a unique landscape. Here the work of man has been impressive. The roughest areas are now transformed by a series of terracings sloping down towards the sea, used to grow citrus, olive trees and grapevines. These gardens exhale heady scents of orange, lemon and orange blossoms. Music, sea, entertainment and nature, but also history and culture.

For the exceptional nature of the finds and their state of preservation, UNESCO has placed under its protection the archaeological areaS of Pompei, Ercolano and Torre Annunziata, that in 79 AC were completely destroyed by Vesuvius. The volcanic lava caused their destruction but, at the same time, it has allowed the exceptional preservation until today.

The blue sea, the green of the Mediterranean scrub, the colors and lines of the small houses fuse together perfectly, creating one of the most beautiful itinerary of the Italian coastline. Sorrento, Amalfi, Ravello, Vietri sul Mare and Positano are some of the precious pearls that make up the necklace of small towns (12 in all) of the coast. They’re like small living Nativities, with their ancient alleys, arches and little squares that enchant for the atmosphere, the sounds and the smells that they emanate. The Reggia of Caserta, another UNESCO site, is an authentic masterpiece of art and architecture and a precious container of masterpieces.

Archeology, nature and traditions are the three distinguishing features of the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park, with the archaeological sites of Paestum and Velia and the Certosa of Padula, a crossroads of cultures and peoples since prehistoric times. Paestum is a precious testimony of the past of this land, it boasts the three best preserved Greek temples in the world: the Temple of Hera, the oldest, the Temple of Neptune, the largest, and the Temple of Ceres, actually dedicated to the goddess Athena.

What to Taste

The cuisine of this region is cheerful and sunny, famous for the typical products of its ground. Thanks to the sun, this region can boast the juiciest and tastiest tomatoes in the world that season many local dishes, among which we find also the famous “pizza napoletana” and the “calzone”. The pizza maker, who invented, in honor of Margherita di Savoia, a tricolor pizza with tomato, mozzarella and basil, has become a legend and this type of pizza still survives with the traditional name of “pizza Margherita”. Napoli is also the homeland of spaghetti. There is plenty of toppings which are all very tasty, but the important thing is the perfect cooking and Neapolitans are true masters in it. Another highlight of this region is the dairy production, with the famous DOP buffalo mozzarella, masterfully produced in the areas of Mondragone, Battipaglia, Capua and Eboli. The most typical desserts are certainly: the “pastiera napoletana”, the crunchy puffs of ricotta, babas soaked into liqueur and the refreshing lemon delight. The Limoncello of Sorrento and regional wines (Taurasi, Aglianico, Greco di Tufo, Asprino d’Aversa, Lacrima Christi, Fiano and Solopaca) wonderfully accompany a dinner with dishes of Neapolitan cuisine, maybe enjoyed on a terrace overlooking the sea, by candlelight, with a beautiful Neapolitan song in the background.
