The Campania region

If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.

The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.

If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.

If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.

An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.

Casal Velino

Marina di Casal Velino lies in the large plain of Alento, between the wide Gulf of Velia and the mounts Stella and Gelbison, rising behind it. From this splendid location you will be able to see the suggestive ruins of the ancient Elea.

A coastal sighting tower rises on top of a green hill and watches over the port and beach: soft and sandy on one hand, rocky and rough on the other hand. The village homes the chapel that preserved St Matthew's relics for a long time, before moving it to Salerno, in 954 AC.

Above the Marina, among olive groves and prickly pears, you will find the mediaeval hamlet of Casal Velino: the ancient "Casalicchio" that dominates the sea, the Cilento coast and the green rises on its back.

From the tourist port of Marina di Casal Velino, you can do everyday boat excursions and guided tours to the sea grottos of Capo Palinuro, the marine park of Punta Licosa, the natural port of Punta degli Infreschi and the Isle of Capri.

Marina di Casal Velino is particularly well-known among the Italians for its beaches, its particularly mild climate and the good offer of tourist services.
