The Campania region
Naples, The capital of the Campania region, is a complex and multilayered city. Beneath the frantic streets, the Baroque buildings, phenomenal Museums and the many markets, sits another world made of catacombs, ancient cults and ruins.
Music and art play a big part in Naples. "Commedia dell'arte" was born here and the " Teatro San Carlo" is one of the world great opera house. The city also hosts the international rock fest Neapolis Rock Festivals (www.neapolis.it), in July .
Naples will always be Italy's pizza capital. During a visit to Naples in 1889, the Italian King Umberto and his wife Queen Margherita summoned the city top ' pizzaiolo' Raffaele Esposito to cook for them. Esposito based his creation of tomato, mozzarella and basil on the red, white and green flag on the newly unified Italy, winning the Queen's approval. It was subsequently named in her honor.
The views across the Bay of Naples are amazing. From Posillipo in Naples you can look East over the entire bay, round to Mt. Vesuvius and the Sorrentine Peninsula. Here you'll find Italy's great archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum - a small fishing town. Then, in 79BC, the Vesuvius erupted, burying the towns under a mix of molten lava, ash and mud.
The charming island of Capri was already a much loved holiday resort in the 1st century AD. Emperor Tiberius had 12 villas built on the island. The best preserved is Villa Jovis
This dramatically beautiful town clinging to the cliff face as if about to cascade into the turquoise waters below. Once a vital part of a mighty sea power, Positano is today a sophisticated Tyrrhenian resort on the central Amalfi Coast. Moorish- style architecture rises up steep slopes that gaze out on the Sirenuse Islands. Smart boutiques, selling beach fashions for visitors to display on Grand Beach, bustle in the village. Ravello and other parts of the Campagna region are within easy reach of the town of 4,000. Boats depart daily for day trips to Capri and Ischia. Others head to Grotta dello Smeraldo cave.
Positano was a port of the Amalfi Republic in medieval times, and prospered in the 16th and 17th centuries. But by the mid-19th century, the town had fallen on hard times. More than half the population emigrated, mostly to Australia.
Positano was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of the 20th century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s, especially after John Steinbeck published his essay about Positano in Harper's Bazaar in May, 1953: "Positano bites deep", Steinbeck wrote. "It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone
