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.
Villino Zoe is 3 kilometers (about 1.8 miles) from the centre of Massa Lubrense, the same distance from Sant’Agata Sui Due Golfi, and roughly 8 kilometers (about 5 miles) from Sorrento. The bus stop is about 300 meters (about 985 feet) away, and you will find grocery shops and restaurants just 1 kilometer (slightly more than half a mile) away.
In this area, there is a broad selection of excellent restaurants.
A stay at Villino Zoe will give you the opportunity to spend your vacation in contact with nature and near small, gracious holiday areas such as Sant’Agata and Massa Lubrense, but it is also an ideal home base from which to visit many major tourist destinations.
From Sorrento you will be able to board ferries to Capri and to the other island of the Gulf of Naples, as well as to Naples itself, and to Amalfi, Positano and the other towns of the Amalfi Coast..
The Amalfi side of the Sorrentine Peninsula can be easily reached by car or by bus as well.
For example, you will be able to reach Positano in half an hour, along a road that at every curve will disclose new views of a breathtaking seascape that is among the most beautiful scenic areas of the world.
The excavations of Pompeii can be reached in approximately one hour by car, or by taking a train from Sorrento.
You will also be within easy reach of Caserta and its wonderful Royal Palace.
If you love hiking, in this area you will find signposted paths that lead you along the rocky coastline above the sea, and little coves reachable only on foot or by sea: you will be able to take unforgettable walks and incredible photographs!
