Campania – Territory

The landscape is very distinctive: the Appennine mountains (Monti Picentini, Irpinia and Salento) are so green and very different from the volcanic relieves (Campi Flegrei and Vesuvio); there are also broad plains, like the Pianura Campana crossed by the most important river in the south of Italy (Volturno). The Thyrrhenian Coast creates four gulfs: Gaeta, Napoli, Salerno and Policastro. Campania is also reach in natural parks, like the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park (Salerno) which is the second largest Italian park, inserted in MAB program by UNESCO as “Biosphere Reserve” to maintain natural and cultural beauties.

Archaeological sites of great value are spread all over the territory. Pompeii, the village covered by lava; Paestum, where you may see lots of findings coming from Magna Graecia; Herculaneum, twice covered by lava during I century BC. Here, according to the legends, Hercules rests in peace.

The Campanian Archipelago Island are the most beautiful and refined of the world: Capri, with its world-famous Piazzetta and the Faraglioni; Ischia, Nisida and the charming Procida (where “Il Postino” was shot, starring Massimo Troisi). These are authentic mediterranean pearls.
