The Campania region
The region known as Campania had the Opici and Aurunci peoples as its first recorded inhabitants. Where Naples is today, the first of the Greek colonies was at Cuma during the 8th century BC.
Etruscans were next to rule the region during the 6th century BC and the Sannites followed and ruled until the Roman Empire annexed the area in the 4th century BC. What followed was a fairly peaceful and stable period until the abrupt eruption in 79 AD of Vesuvius. The eruption caused the complete and total destruction of the cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii.
Once the Roman Empire saw its demise, the region became the battleground of the Byzantines and the Goths as both tried to seize the area during the 5th-6th centuries. Amalfi and Naples were republics that were independent, but Campania became part of the Lombard Duchy of Benevento.
Robert and Roger Guiscard both Normans were responsible for reuniting Campania in the 11th century when they wrested the area from the Byzantines who had thus dominated southern Italy. The Kingdom of Sicily in 1139 was invested by the Pope to Roger II who was a nephew of Robert.
When Charles of Anjou or Charles I in 1282 lost Sicily, he still managed to keep the territories on the mainland. Known as the Kingdom of Naples, the area included Campania, Calabria, Puglia, and Abruzzo. Naples was the capital. The Kingdoms of Sicily and Naples united and again separated. The Spanish ruled the area from 1504-1713. Once the Treaty of Blois ceded Sicily and Naples to Spain, southern Italy saw the next two centuries bring about an era that is said to have been a time of immense poverty and exploitation. Disease and famine ran rampant as agricultural pursuits were interrupted by land grabbers of both the Spanish nobles and the Church.
Campania had already seen its fair share of rulers when first the Austrians occupied the area and then again the Spaniards. Ferdinand had his hand forced in 1820 when an uprising brought about a constitution. Garibaldi took the area next and it was in 1861 that the two Kingdoms of Sicily became one when they merged as part of the new Kingdom of Italy. During the latter part of the 19th century into the 20th century, Campania saw many of its people migrate to the new world of opportunity that was America. Today, Campania is popular among Italians as well as Europeans as a holiday destination. There is much history to uncover and beautiful coastal breezes to soothe you when you visit the historic area of Campania, Italy
The enchanting landscape with its high cliffs, the superb views over the Gulf of Naples to Vesuvius, make Sorrento a traditional international holiday resort.
It is an ideal place to come on holiday, a great tourist attraction also for the vicinity of popular places easy to reach such as the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples, Capri, Positano, Amalfi and Ischia.
Sorrento coast is composed of rugged inaccessible cliffs alternated with pleasant beaches.
The town’s coastal area is divided in two villages: Marina Piccola, with the harbour for ferries and hydrofoils, and Marina Grande, with its lidos and beaches.
A FEW HISTORICAL INSIGHTS ABOUT SORRENTO:
Sorrento was probably founded by the Etruscans (VII century b.c.), a population coming from Tuscany, and later conquered by the Samnites (V century b.c.), native of Campania region. It eventually came under the Roman sphere influence, but with the fall of the Roman empire and the barbarian invasions, Sorrento suffered the same devastating fate as many other Roman towns in Campania. The town reached the height of its glory in the Middle Ages as a free maritime duchy, and even contested the supremacy of Amalfi and Naples in the Upper Tyrrhenian Sea. After the long period of the Middle Age, Sorrento suffered the Spanish domination: the baroque style of so many churches is a visible heritage of that period. But the XVIII century and a part of the XIX century were an economical, social end cultural rebirth of Sorrento when the tourist vocation of this area was born and it was established with its inclusion in the so-called "Grand Tour", a journey through the most important Italian sights that every noble European son of those times had to make to complete his cultural, historical and literary formation. Thus, guests such as Byron, Keats, Scott, Dickens, Goethe, Wagner, Ibsen and Nitzsche came to stay in Sorrento in search of sun and inspiration.
