The Campania region
Campania is a very interesting region, not only for its famous holiday resorts like Sorrento, Capri, Positano and Amalfi but also for its historical sites like Pompeii, Herculaneum, Cuma and Paestum.
Naples unfortunately has a bad reputation, (not deserved today) but it is one of the most stimulating cities of Italy. It was the capital of a kingdom for centuries and its palaces, churches and monuments reflect the incredible culture that was once concentrated here. It was considered the cultural capital of Europe in the 19th century with the exceptional music at the San Carlo theatre, the Posillipo landscape school of art where famous British and Russian artists came to work, its magnificent hotels where travellers of the 'Grand Tour' would stop to rest and one of the oldest universities of Europe where Chaucer studied and was inspired. Today it is a bustling and rather caotic city but if you are able to look through the grime and traffic you will perceive a city with a great history.
The Archeological Museum is renowned for its antique Roman and Greek artifacts, The Capodimonte Museum has a wonderful collection of Renaissance art and The San Carlo theatre is well worth a visit.
The island of Capri is probably one of the most stunning islands in the world. It is only quite small and has two main towns, Capri and Anacapri.
It enjoys a wonderful temperate climate and there is always a nice cool breeze blowing off the sea even on the hottest day. There are lots of places to visit, nearly all on foot, as most of the island is pedestrian. This adds to its charm and peace.
Capri is the bigger town, more sophisticated and bustling with its many famous restaurants and designer boutiques.
Anacapri is much quieter,with the atmosphere of a typical Mediterranean village. The Swedish doctor and writer Axel Munthe lived here and his home is a popular museum today. Gracie Fields and Graham Green also chose Anacapri as their residence. The village is quiet and relaxing with many good bars, restaurants and pizzerias. Nothing like a delicious gelato(ice cream) while people watching.
