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 honour.
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.

"Fantastic and affordable rental with a great view"
We absolutely loved our "Pretty House" rental. The location was perfect for easily catching the Amalfi Coast bus lines and the Positano local bus. Right around the bend was the Bar Internazionale, which was a fantastic spot for getting some morning pastries, coffee, bus tickets, wine, etc. You will have to climb a lot of stairs in Positano (regardless of where you stay)--that being said, I think this apartment was in the perfect location for daytrips and taking in the views in Positano. To me, the apartment seemed very spacious--far more spacious than most places I've stayed in Europe, and everything was well-maintained and exactly as pictured. I'm a bit of a neat freak, so I'm picky. And this rental was clean, in good shape, and charming. The landlord, Julie, was very kind, prompt and thorough, and we received the same great service from the rental coordination by Pia. If you're booking this from the US I would strongly recommend paying via PayPal, as wiring money through Western Union was not possible after multiple attempts (all of the Western Union employees and contract providers were totally in the dark and not at all helpful). Anyway, in all, I'd say that this apartment felt like home, and we were very pleased with everything.
Thank you from us all.

"Spectacular and relaxing, all in one place"
Positano is completely lovely and Pretty House was a perfect base for me to have a week of unwinding. Julie was lovely and helpful - met me off the bus and made sure I was settled in. I had a lovely lazy time, and the view - day and night - is unbelievable. Totally stunning. I more or less lived on the little terrace during the day, and in the evening, watching the lights of Positano come on, while sipping a glass of local wine, was a treat for all the senses. The local "interno" bus was ideal for popping up and down to the main town, to browse in some great little shops, lunch or stop for a drink or an ice cream. The house is well equipped with some nice extra touches - lovely plates and bowls, lots of utensils and cooking equipment etc. A perfect place to unwind.
