The Campania region
About Sorrento & Amalfi Coast
"There is no region along the length of the Apennines that is so uneven with respect to space, certainly none that has such majestic mountains and such marine beauty". This quotation by an Italian historian and economist, who loved this region and crossed the Lattari Mountains in 1877, is the perfect introduction for the Sorrento and Amalfi Coast, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. This part of Italy, where the mountains and the sea blend in perfect harmony, is unique for the natural environment and the geography, for the stunning views and the charming towns spread all along the coast.
The vibrant city of NAPLES is the capital of the region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy, after Rome and Milan. Over the course of its long history, Naples has been the capital of duchies and kingdoms, and has consistently been a major cultural centre with a global sphere of influence, particularly during the Renaissance and Enlightenment eras. The hidden treasures and the soul of the city will take you in, while exploring monuments, churches and museums during the day, or while taking an evening walk in its lively streets after a Pizza or a coffee. Among the wide choice of museums, do not miss the National Archaeological Museum that features one of the most extensive collections of artefacts of the Roman Empire and many of the antiques unearthed at Pompeii and Herculaneum, the two towns buried by mud and ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D.
The best-know town on the Sorrentinian Peninsula is SORRENTO, a bustling centre with a delightful maze of small shops, cafés and restaurants that meander from the main square, Piazza Tasso, and are open throughout the year. It is famous for its aromatic lemons too. For those who are looking for the gastronomic experience of tasting the fresh seafood and the locally brewed iced Limoncello, there is no finer place to be.
