The landscape of Campania.
Large cities in Campania: Naples, Caserta, Benevento and Salerno
Naples, which is the capital of Campania, has its own history, character and melody. The city is situated by one of the most beautiful bays in the Mediterranean Sea, and there is a striking contrast between sunny piazzas and dark narrow streets, fine Baroque churches and futuristic skyscrapers.
Caserta is a charming city with The Reggia di Caserta (Royal Palace), designed by Vanvitelli, with its Park and English Garden, was built in the mid 18th century on commission of the king of Naples, who wanted it to rival the Palace of Versailles.
Benevento has a long and important history and is, among others, known for its beautiful triumphal arch which was built under the emperor Trajan.
Salerno in the south is beautifully located to the sea. Large parts of the city were exposed to heavy bombardments during World War II, which is why parts of the city are of a more modern style.

Campania has a rich countryside with beautiful coastal stretches, beautiful islands, mountains and rivers.

The Living Nativity.
The living Nativity of St. Saviour is a show that for almost 20 years has held forth in the festive scene equense earth, and certainly best remembered, - than others. The first performance, was released in December 1982, thanks to the spontaneous emergence of a youth group curated and coordinated by Ms Titina Di Palma, who later became a fact of the event organizers of all the years following. It was a reproduction of the Nativity and the Adoration of the Magi simply reproduced in the square outside the church. A few key scenes and characters. Sore to the public liked, and it is enough as an idea for something bigger. And in fact in later editions there has always been greater participation by the people of San Salvatore - adults and kids-organization of the event, and not only thanks to the active participation of Salvatore Salvatore Ferraro and Starace. Many more people wanted to participate, take part in this passion play. It was decided to widen and lengthen the path on which they arranged the scenes. Forty / fifty scenes unfolded along the alleys of the village, which grew around a crib. In the years that were designed amazingly realistic backgrounds. Ms Titin recalled that preparations began at least two months before, because everything was finished in time: costumes, tools, set designs. Countless nights spent working in the houses or in cellars. Again this year, has revived the desire to restart the organizers of the nativity scene. A positive event: for the community, but also a way to explore an area of the Sorrento peninsula, connected, perhaps, even the good old days. (Borgo San Salvatore)

"Everything we hoped it would be"
From the moment Flora.and Claudio met us with the keys to the villa we knew that we had chosen well. the villa is very well appointed and tastefully decorated. We were travelling with our young children and elderly mother from Australia to experience the sites and sounds of Italy just before Christmas. Flora had thoughtfully decorated the villa for the festive season and even baked traditional Italian biscuits for us all to enjoy. The children were well catered for with things to keep them entertained. The villa is very well located just a short walk into Vico and any easy drive down the Amalfi coast and all it has to offer. The owners left plenty of information as to things to do in the local area, as well as plenty of personal suggestions as to things the family might enjoy,including some of the best local restaurants to eat in. We will definitely be back for another holiday in Vico Equense in Villa Flora
Thank you very much for your beautiful feedback. It was an honor to have you and your family, as Villa Flora Guests and we really hope to meet you again, in the future.

We are happy for your amazing experience in Villa Flora. The coast of Italy does not disappoint. Dramatic views of the Mediterranean and Mount Vesuvius, are just the beginning of what you will see when you visit Villa Flora. And if you want to see ALL of the major places on the coast such as Pompeii, Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi, the small town of Vico Equense where "Villa Flora" is located, is a perfect place to start. The Villa is a short walk to the small town with GREAT places to eat and to get the morning going with a Cappuccino. This small town also has a train stop, a small grocery store, a place to rent mopeds, etc. The train station, which is very easy to decipher, makes it very easy to see the other towns by just by hopping on and off in just a few minutes, whereas other areas like Positano, you need to take a bus to Sorrento to take the train which adds at least 2 hours to any small day trips.The view is amazing, and even better in real life compared to what the few pictures can try to portray. It is just a short walk to the small town (up the hill) and a short walk to the beautiful beach (down the hill). In Villa Flora and in Vico Equense, you can enjoy a vacation in one of the most Beautiful places in the World! We are waiting for you again in Villa Flora. Claudio and Flora

Thank you for your satisfaction about your Holiday in Villa Flora.
This large villa is well situated in the lovely, non-touristy, typical Italian town of Vico Equense. Vico Equense is easy and cheap for food shopping, coffees (and pastries) and meals out. The local cheese, of which the town is proud, is delicious. The railway (Circumvesuviana) station is a pleasant 15 minute walk through the town with views over Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. Rail travel to Sorrento, Pompeii and Herculaneum is very cheap (circa 1.5 euro), and the train runs every half an hour. There are great local coffee shops and restaurants all within 10 or 15 minute walk. Pizza a Metro is great for good quality food at a very reasonable price, and Signum opposite Piazza Kennedy did amazing food. You don't really need a car - you can catch the coach from the airport to the centre of Vico Equense, and the train will get you everywhere else. The villa is in a lovely private and very quiet park with access to the harbour - it is situated down the hill which makes it beautiful and worth the walk up and down the hill. We hope to meet you again to enjoy another beautiful Holiday in Villa Flora. Thank you! Claudio and Flora
