The Campania region
Campania was part of Magna Graecia, the Greek colonies of southern Italy; the first Greek colony was founded at Cumae, north of present day Naples, in the 8th century BCE. Etruscans and Samnites gave way to the expanding Roman Republic.
In 217 BCE Hannibal entered Campania and by burning the crops of these fertile lowlands hoped to provoke the Roman commander Fabius Maximus Cunctator (the delayer). In this Hannibal failed; nor did he sufficiently weaken Roman prestige for any of the Campanian towns to rebel. Fabius, in turn, failed to trap Hannibal in Campania when Hannibal used the ruse of tying burning brands to the horns of cattle, so drawing off the force guarding a vital pass out of Campania. In 216 BCE, however, after Hannibal's victory at the battle of Cannae, Capua, the leading city of Campania, wavered. They first requested complete equality with Rome, including the demand that one of the Roman consuls should be elected from Capua. When Rome rejected this, they opened negotiations with Hannibal who was more than willing to endorse the full independence they sought. The defection of Capua did not however inspire other Campanian towns so Capua was isolated. The Romans, in Hannibal's absence, were eventually able to build siege works round the city. As Hannibal proved unable to break the siege, Capua was eventually starved into submission in 211 BCE.
Campania was the breadbasket of Rome until the acquisition of Egypt brought greater supplies of grain, resulting in the conversion of smallholdings in Campania to the characteristic latifundia that lasted from the Empire to modern times. Goths and the Byzantine Empire struggled for control during the 5th and 6th centuries, followed by the Lombards, who established the Duchy of Benevento. The Normans (Robert Guiscard) conquered and re-unified Campania during the 11th and 12th centuries, seizing southern Italy from the Byzantines, forming the Kingdom of Sicily. After the Hohenstaufen confrontation with the Papacy, the kingdom passed to Charles of Anjou who retained his mainland territories after he lost Sicily (1282) as the Kingdom of Naples, reunited with Sicily by Alfonso V of Aragon (1442) who styled himself the 'King of Two Sicilies', a title that was subsequently revived during the Spanish domination (1504 – 1713) of both kingdoms. The Bourbons succeeded in 1713: prior to the unification of Italy, Campania formed part of the Bourbon Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.

Sant'Agnello di Sorrento
Sorrento is a beautiful small Italian town sitting atop high cliffs overlooking the Bay of Naples. It is clean, safe, friendly, and a great jumping off point for day trips to surrounding locations in the Italian state of Campania.
Sorrento area is located on a platform of a volcanic stone, 50 meters above the sea-level and there aren't many beaches. That is the reason why You'll see so many wooden bathing establishments here. If You look for a large beach in Sorrento area, You should go to Alimuri beach (4 Km away from the Holidays House La Terrazza) – payment car parking available.
After about 2 km you reach the picturesque old town centre of Sorrento with its small shops, lively bars and beautiful restaurants. Like a huge panorama balcony the city is located on a rock above the sea.
The sea and the nearest beach are about 1,5 km away. Become enchanted by the charm of the Sorrento peninsula: Lively harbour villages and mainly still untouched farming villages in the hinterland are to be discovered. On old mule paths, passing through ancient olive and lemon groves, one can hike wonderfully.
Year-round, speedboats will take you from Sorrento to the islands of Capri and Ischia… whoever likes it more tranquil can set sail with one of the fishermen on nearby Massa Lubrense and watch or even lend a hand with their fishing – there is no limit for the style of your holiday!
A curiosity: if You rent the Holidays House La Terrazza, consider also that each week a street market is arranged. Besides, on Monday every week in Sant'Agnello e Piano di Sorrento (about 2 Km away from the Holidays House La Terrazza) You can go to the local street market where You can find anything for very good prices.
We suggest You also to visit the small but absolutely breath-taking public garden Villa Comunale of Sorrento (free entrance) from where You can admire the beautiful gulf of Naples with its symbol Vesuvius. And in the evening, if You wish to try one of the best pizzas in the area see you soon.
