The Campania region
Campania (Italian pronunciation: [kamˈpa?nja]) is a region in southern Italy. The region has a population of around 5.8 million people, making it the second-most-populous region of Italy; its total area of 13,590 km² makes it the most densely populated region in the country. Located on the Italian Peninsula, with the Mediterranean Sea to the west, it includes the small Flegrean Islands and Capri for administration as part of the region.
Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the center of Western civilization'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 sizable 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, Paestum and Velia. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fertile countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.
In amalfi coast The church of Santa Maria a Gradillo is the only place from which to begin a tour allowing you to really take in the various architecture of Ravello. In fact Ravello is one of the visited place of the Amalfi Coast and in the center of the town there is Antica Porta Ravello residence - holiday house that comprising a number of well-kept apartments.
In Ravello you are greeted by the beautiful facade, with its intense Moorish atmosphere. A littlefurther on lie the remains of the old fortified Castel, which dates back to the early 13th century. Immediately you are immersed in the real heart of the town of the Amalfi Coast. Standing on Piazza Vescovado you see the Duomo, an artistic treasure trove in itself, which faces the entrance tower to the superb Villa Rufolo. An almost coreographed harmony is created in this gathering of 3rd and 4th century buildings, all of which immersed in an incredibly varied and luxurious vegetation. Behind the noble dwelling rises the church of the Santissima Annunziata, whose rather savere vault is decorated with inlaid grey stone. Still further along is the church of Dan Pietro alla Costa, perhaps the city's most ancient according to date of founding.
The old foundations of the basilica callapsed in the 1500s, before reconstruction and renovation took place in the following centuries.
Finally, you reach the medieval town of Torello, which was the first inhabitated hub of Ravello and takes its name from the Toro mountain.
In the centre is the church of San Michele Arcangelo. From Ravello you can easly reach the other Amalfi Coast towns: Amalfi, Positano, ,Praiano, Conca, Sorrento, Punta Campanella, Capri , Ischia.

"This place was perfect!"
I stayed for 2 nights in this apartment with my husband and our 2 daughters. The building is either brand new or just renovated. The apartment was clean and spacious, well located and quiet at night. Ravello is the place to be for beauty on the Amalfi coast without the craziness of all the tourists in Amalfi. The owner was very kind and helpful, I could not have been more satisfied. The only downside was no Wi-Fi, but maybe they will add it in time.
