A full path to know what the ancients called "Most fertile of lands" and the travelers on the Grand Tour called it Campania Felix: an extraordinary interweaving of history, art, culture and nature, a land where ancient and modern merge into a grand spectacle that has lasted thousands of years.
Naples, with its museums, its castles, churches and sumptuous palaces and numerous monuments, is the heart of a lovely trip. But other areas of the region offer the visitor emotions equally surprising. The remains of Pompeii, Herculaneum and other cities buried by Vesuvius in 79 AD have re-emerged from the underground, eloquent testimony to the fury of Vesuvius. The Campi Flegrei with Pozzuoli, Baia and Cuma, retain an old world charm and deep, rich history and art, and incomparable natural charm.
Grandeur and monumentality characterize the magnificent royal residences that bear the sign of Bourbon as the magnificent Royal Palace of Caserta and the park designed by Vanvitelli. Not far from there, another rare gem is the archaeological site of Ancient Capua. To the south, in the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, we meet yet another jewel of the archaeological heritage of Campania: the archaeological ruins of Paestum. There is more where you least expect, tenebrous grottoes and religious sites of endless fascination.
