Naples


Home to the pizza capital of the world, Campania in south west Italy is a food lover’s dream destination. It’s not all about the pizza though, there are plenty more delicious recipes on offer. The various countries and cultures that have influenced the cuisine have also shaped Campania’s towns, cities and villages. From ancient ruins to the bustling capital of Naples, Campania’s landscape is varied and striking. Beach fans will fall for the rugged coastline peppered with sandy bays and grottoes. For those who want a side-order of quaint coastal houses with their sun-tan, the colourful towns of Positano and Amalfi offer some fantastic photo opportunities.

The rainbow of colours on display in Campania don’t stop there. Through the year vibrant festivals paint the town red in their own distinct way. Parties spill out onto Italy’s streets with pageants, regattas and parades.

With mild winters and sun-filled summers, a Campania holiday is ideal for perfecting a tan or exploring local villages. If leisurely sunbathing on the coast sounds far too sedate, Campania has plenty of activities for families and couples looking for adventure. Mt Vesuvius is well worth the steep climb - with breathtaking views from the summit. Whether you’re volcano climbing, sailing to nearby islands or exploring Pompeii we’re certain you’ll agree there’s much more to Campania than pizza.

Top Campania resorts

Naples

An under-rated and under-visited part of Italy, Naples is for you if you’re keen to avoid the crowds. Birthplace of the wood-fired Neopolitan pizza, Naples is, quite rightly, home to the world’s oldest pizzeria. But pizza isn’t the only thing on Naples’ menu. The city serves up authentic Italian culture, art, historic artefacts and more in its museums.  

Sorrento 

The perfect stop off before hopping aboard a ferry to nearby Capri, you’ll want to explore Sorrento before sailing away. Walk around the Tasso Square for historic attractions or enjoy a fresh traditional fish dish by the water’s edge at the marina. A stroll through Sorrento’s park will reward you with some much-needed shade in the summer. Palm trees and plants provide a lush green backdrop to the statues on display.

Positano

The iconic and colourful images of Positano are so familiar you may feel like you’ve been there already. Italy’s coastal gem is pretty in pink, yellow, blue and any other colour spotted in this charming hillside village. Charge up your camera and take in the sights of this colourful village. It’s Italy’s most photogenic town for a reason.


Things to Do in Campania

Exploring Campania…

Hike Mt Vesuvius

Pack some sturdy boots and a robust picnic to scale the heights of this infamous volcano. Tour vehicles can take you part of the way, but be prepared for a hike if you want to reach the crater. There’s no bubbling lava, but you get far reaching views across the bay of Naples (on a clear day). Remember to pack warm clothes as well as sun screen and water - the weather can vary as you scale the dizzying heights!

Take a boat trip to Capri

Entertaining VIPs since Roman times, Capri still attracts a very elite clientele every summer. We’re told the chic cafes and stylish boutiques are the perfect spot for celeb spotting. Keen to see Capri without doing some serious harm to your wallet? We recommend exploring the rest of the island. A day trip filled with vibrant colour - from the sapphire blue waters to the deep purple and red of the blooming bougainvillea. You can’t put a price tag on that.

Explore Pompeii

Home to one of Italy’s most important archaeological sites, Pompeii is also a striking reminder of the power held within nearby Mt Vesuvius. Covered in a thick layer of ash and lava from a volcanic eruption in 79AD, Pompeii was preserved in that moment. The ruins still stand today, with houses containing furniture and ornaments left behind by the fleeing residents.

Grotte di Castelcivita

We’ve been told that humans left these mesmerising grottoes 42,000 years ago, but there’s still life in the prehistoric caves. Bats, and lots of them. Take a jacket, some sensible shoes and leave the flash photography at the door (it blinds the bats). Stalagmites, stalactites and a sea of colour are waiting for you on the tour of the cave complex.

Food and drink in Campania

Italian cuisine

If garlic bread is your go-to side with an Italian meal, you may be surprised to know it’s not a true Italian dish. Like its other Italian-American cousins you won’t find in authentic Italian restaurants. Try bruschetta al pomodoro instead - a toasted bread rubbed with garlic and topped with fresh tomatoes. Swap spaghetti and meatballs for polpette al sugo. Usually served without pasta but still delicious.

Campania restaurants

Fast food fans will be delighted to hear that Campania is famous for its pizza - but these will be unlike any you’ve tried back home. Only the freshest ingredients go into a Campania pizza. Sun-kissed vegetables, fresh cheeses (including mozzarella) and herbs all combine to make a pizza base on which to add a variety of toppings.

If you head to the Amalfi coast, we recommend tracking down their unique pasta dish - Scialatielli. Strands of pasta - made with Parmigiano - is mixed with seafood and cherry tomatoes. Sampling the local food provides a great excuse to try some local wines. We recommend a Falerno or Fiano di Avellino for a true taste of Campania.
