Campania

Campania is unique and incomparable. Italy for me begins in Naples.Gérard Depardieu
General information
Campania is a region in Southern Italy that is famous all over the world thanks to its naturally amazing views. It actually counts six UNESCO World Heritage sites, i.e. the historic city centre of Naples, the Royal Palace of Caserta, the ruins of the Roman cities Pompeii, Ercolano and Oplonti, the Amalfi Coast, the National Park of Cilento and the Church of Santa Sofia in Benevento. As for its surface, it mainly consists of hills (50,8%), 34,6% is covered by mountains while 14,6% is plain. It’s a vulcanic area with many rivers, lakes and breath-taking seashores. The Sorrento peninsula, the Amalfi coast and the Cilento coastline are well-known thanks to their mix of nature, beauty and culture. Campania also boasts some of the most charming islands in Italy: Capri, Ischia and Procida, along with smaller and less famous (but not less beautiful) islands. 25% of Campania consists of natural conservation areas, among which the National Park of Vesuvio, the National Park of Cilento, the wildlife reserves of Castelvolturno and Cratere degli Astroni, the natural oasis of Mount Polveracchio, to mention but a few. The climate is Mediterranean along the coast, whereas in the inner zones it is more continental due to the presence of the mountains.
