The Campania region
Campania region is the beginning of the 'mezzogiorno'. Translating as the 'midday' the phrase evokes the sun-baked south. And Campania - with its ancient Greek and Roman towns, rumbling volcanoes and glittering blue coastline, at times evokes Classical Greece as much as modern Italy. You could be a million miles from bureaucratic and businesslike Milan.
Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western Civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.
It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizeable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragonese culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1860 when it became part of the new state Italy.
The capital city of Campania is Naples. Campania is rich in culture, especially in regards to gastronomy, music, architecture, archaeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fortunate countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Cilento Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.
From Casa Misia you can reach the beach called Gavitella on foot. Although the way consists of a descending path of 337 steps along a rocky coast, you will be rewarded by a fascinating panorama.
Gavitella is a gravel beach where you will see a concrete platform which works as an access to the sea. At the beach, during spring/summer, you can have the services of a beach establishment with a restaurant-bar and a ferry which takes you to other beaches, such as the beach of Praia or Positano.
Sandy beaches nearby can be reached either by land with the local mini-shuttle (bus stop is 50 meters or about 164 feet away from Casa Misia ) or by sea, with mini-ferries or local boats.
Nearby tourist attractions
While spending your vacation in Praiano you will be in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, halfway between Positano and Amalfi (about 16 km or about 10 miles away). You will be in a perfect place to visit either by land or sea the enthralling towns of the Amalfi Coast, and also Capri and Ischia, Sorrento, the archaeological ruins of Pompeii, the temples of Paestum, the Reggia (Royal Palace) of Caserta, and the coast of the Parco Nazionale del Cilento (National Park of Cilento).
You don’t need a car during your stay at Casa Misia. In Praiano you will have the bus stop of the SITA bus, which links towns ranging from the coast of Sorrento to the coast of Salerno. There are also local mini-shuttles which take you from Praiano to the beach of Praia and Positano. However, in case you have a car, there is a parking lot about 400 meters (about 1,312 feet) away from the house.
In both Amalfi and Positano you will be able to board ferries and hydrofoils of the place and also rent boats to go on private excursions.
If you’re fond of trekking, don’t miss a walk along trails which unravel on top of mountains along the coast. You begin it with the visit to the Convent of San Domenico, an “easy” stroll leaving from the town of Praiano, and finish it with the ‘Sentiero degli Dei’ (Trail of the Gods), a path holding such name due to the extraordinary beauty of landscapes, all to be unveiled by you.
