About this location
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, 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.
Casa Chicca is a great place to stay if you are looking for the authentic spell of the Amalfi Coast and want to be just a step away from the chaotic tourist life of the more crowded areas.
Shops and restaurants are at 100 meters (110 yards). The well-known tourist spots of the coast are easily reached since just a few steps from the house you will be able to board the local bus which, from March to November, connects Praiano and the nearby beach of Praia (3 km, 2 miles) and Positano (6 km, 3.5 miles).
The local bus will also take you to the bus stop where you can board the Sita bus to Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento, from where you can then proceed to Pompeii, Paestum, Naples and so on.
The ferry to Capri, Sorrento and Salerno can be boarded in Amalfi (8 km, 5 miles) and in Positano.
In addition, for mountain hiking enthusiasts, one can easily reach the famous trail running through the mountains of the Amalfi Coast amid cliffs and breathtaking views. Due to its extraordinary beauty, such path is called “Sentiero degli Dei” (Path of the Gods).
