The Amalfi Coast 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, archeological 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 Lucilla you will be able to reach the centre of Positano by bus or on foot. On foot, you will need to walk along characteristic pedestrian alleys and stairways, and the distance is approximately 500 meters (550 yards). The local minibus is more comfortable. It stops at 50 meters (yards) from the house and makes frequent journeys.
The closest restaurants, cafes and grocery stores are at 150 meters (yards). The stop for the bus that connects Positano to Sorrento and to the other tourist spots of the coast is at 50 meters (yards) as well.
To stay at Casa Lucilla you will not need a car. The bus service is cheap and efficient.
To reach the main beach (Spiaggia Grande) of Positano you will be able to board the local bus or walk downhill along the characteristic pedestrian alleys. It is a long walk, but it will allow you to enjoy fascinating views. Do it at least once, if your knees can afford it!
