Campania felix, they called it in the Grand Tour travellers’ diaries. The distinctive character of this extraordinary region lies in its inimitable variety of thousand-year old historic sites and superb natural scenery punctuated by monuments, not for nothing among the most famous and well-visited in the world: Vesuvius, with Pompeii and Herculaneum at its feet, the enchanting gulf between the Sorrentine and Amalfitan peninsulas, Capri, Ischia and Procida, the Phlegrean peninsula city of Pozzuoli, Roman archaeology, the superb Reggia di Caserta, the Cilento’s Paestum coast and Padula and its monastery

From Naples you can also reach all the Aeolian islands, and Sicily itself
