The Campania region has a lot to offer to visitors. It has been inhabited since immemorial times, so there is plenty of history that even pre-dates the arrival of Greeks and Romans into this area. There are Greek remains at Cuma, to the north of Naples, as well as in the Cilento National Park, south of Salerno, at Paestum, in addition to the remarkably well-preserved Roman ruins of Herculaneum, Pompeii, Oplontis and Stabiae, near Naples. The latter is also well known for its Greek origins and for the remains of the Greek and Roman time. There is plenty of antique material on display at the numerous museums spread all over the region: remains and artifacts dating back to prehistory times, as well as more modern handicrafts.
The Campania region is famous for its diverse landscapes. It has a very long and stunning coastline, which includes the world famous and stunning Amalfi Coast and the Sorrento peninsula, as well as the more romantic Cilento coast. Close to the gulf of Naples there are the awesome islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida.
The region also has the Appennine mountain range which embraces the plain known as the Piana Campana, offering outstanding panorama stretches, and it has many lakes and rivers generating from those mountains. Consequently, there are many opportunities to go hiking, for a truly inspiring experience, in spectacular natural areas, with some of the best scenery in the world. Among the most popular hikes Mt. Vesuvius, with its breathtaking views over the gulf of Naples, is surely the best target for hikers. The Sentiero degli dei (the Path of Gods), on the Amalfi Coast, is also considered to be one of the most beautiful trails which offers a real opportunity to slow down and disconnect.
Since Campania was populated by different people, there is evidence of their culture and their artistic production in numerous buildings, art galleries, royal palaces, castles, churches and monasteries. The cities and villages of the region have always a peculiarity of their own, so it is possible to visit each of them and constantly marvel at it.
