Experience Campania

Umbria, known as the Green Heart of Italy is the only totally land locked region in Italy.

Campania is a region of Southern Italy. Its capital is the city of Naples. The area contains the volcano Vesuvius, which despite its violent, historically significant eruptions is still valued for its incredibly fertile soil. It is the only active volcano on mainland Europe. It is over 1200 meters tall but the visible cone is only a fraction of the size of the volcano that infamously destroyed both Pompeii and Herculaneum in AD79. A hike up the side of the volcano is hard work but is certainly a rewarding morning’s activity if you are fit enough.

The fine town of Sorrento is another popular destination, overlooking as it does, the beautiful Bay Of Naples. Boat trips from Sorrento can take you to the picturesque islands of Capri and Ischia. Capri is where the singer Gracie Fields retired to after the war and who appears to be quite revered by the locals despite her being largely forgotten in the U.K. Sorrento can be regarded as the gateway to the breathtaking Amalfi coast. Ischia is the island to which Sir William Walton retired. He was an orchestral composer who famously wrote the stirring score for the 1969 film The Battle Of Britain and about a dozen others. His wife Susana created a spectacular garden there which can be visited.

The Italian dessert spumoni travelled to the USA during the 19th century and became an ice cream dish known as Neapolitan. Naples is, of course, credited with being the place from where pizza originated.

Mozarella is made only from the milk of the Italian buffalo and it has PDO protected status in Campania and three other regions only. Its taste is hugely superior to the ordinary cows’ milk varieties commonly made and sold elsewhere.

The Capo di Monte museum, housed in an impressive Bourbon palazzo can be visited in Naples. The collection includes masterpieces by Botticelli, Bellini, Bruegel, Titian, Caravaggio, El Greco and Raphael. There are also royal apartments with collections of porcelain and majolica.
