Campania, a region in South-Western Italy
, sits on the shin of Italy's boot, and is an aggregate of coastline leading to blue seas, bustling villages
offering a myriad of vacation rentals and a landscape of steaming sulfurous springs and limestone rocks. Charming apartment rental, family sized condo rental and oceanfront villa rental accommodations curve around the bays of Naples
, with towering Vesuvius and mountain ranges and massifs looming above.
Vacation rental accommodations in Campania facing the Tyrrhenian Sea embrace one of the finest coastline views in Italy. The Amalfi coast presents a series of mountainside towns that seem to tumble into the sea
. The narrow highway leading down the Amalfi Coast can be a harrowing, albeit picturesque, drive to the memorable towns of Amalfi and Sorrento
, upscale Positano, and Ravello
, a haven for the elite. Or travel by ferry or hydrofoil to the famed island of Capri, home of the magical Blue Grotto
, and then head to another nearby island, Ischia, to relax at one of its many natural spas. Picturesque apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals overlooking the Gulfs of Naples and Salerno admire some of the most beautiful islands in the world.
Bold and brassy, Campania's capital city of Naples
is the proud birthplace of pizza. The busy city has a little bit of everything, several world-class museums, stunning architecture and a vibrant and animated population and captivating vacation rentals and villas. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe
and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO
. East of Naples you will find Caserta
, best known for the Palace of Caserta
. Salerno is a welcoming community for tourists staying in eclectic vacation rental accommodation and lodging with its historical centre, where you can admire the traces of its ancient history and the fervour of artisan shops.
There are many social, historical and cultural highlights in Campania. Vesuvius' violent eruption both destroyed and preserved the ancient classical ruins that are scattered throughout the region, from the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum to the Greek temples in Paestum
. A multitude of museums can be found in close proximity to apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodation throughout this region. The National Museum in Naples
houses one of the most important archaeological collections in the world. In the Museum and Galleries of Capodimonte
, you can admire masterpieces by Titian, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Caravaggio. The National Museum of San Martino
boasts historic, artistic and monumental sections and the Museum of the Sannio in Benevento
