The Campania region is a region of southern Italy and is situated between the Tyrrhenian Sea, which bathes its shores, and the regions of Lazio, Molise, Apulia and Basilicata. The symbol of this region, known all over in the world, is certainly the Vesuvius overlooking the Gulf of Naples, whose historic center is a world heritage site by UNESCO; it is a now extinct volcano and apparently harmless but that in the past, in 79 A.D. with a tremendous eruption destroyed all the villages located in its vicinity. Although Naples is internationally known both for its architecture and for his art but especially for food which by now, in our globalized civilization, is consumed daily in all countries of the world, the “pizza“. Also on the coast is the town of Sorrento, located on a rocky terrace overlooking the sea; as you head south you are on the Amalfi Coast that with the towns of Amalfi, Ravello, Cetara, Praiano andPositano became part of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. In the Gulf of Naples are, instead, the island of Ischia with its thermal baths, the Isle of Capri with its famous Blue Grotto and the islands of Procida, Vivara and Nisida. For its long and special history the region has a unique archaeological heritage that contemplates the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Torre Annunziata that are of Roman origin and located at the foot of Vesuvius; while the archaeological site of Paestum, which is of Greek origin and is located south of the Amalfi Coast, where we can see many temples very well preserved. The region is home to over a number of regional protected areas and also of two national parks, theVesuvius National Park and the National Park of Cilento and Vallo of Diano, which together account for about 25% of the surface of the entire region. To the north of Naples is the city of Caserta where we can find the wonderful spectacle of the Royal Palace and its park, both UNESCO World Heritage. Other places of artistic and historical interest are: Benevento with the monumental complex of Santa Sofia, Padula with its immense religious complex of the Charterhouse, and finally Avellino and Salerno.
