Campania travel guide

4.3
Ruins · Landmarks · Art Museums
Stretching along the Tyrrhenian Sea, Campania is noted for its mild climate, picturesque coast, outstanding culinary tradition, and rich legacy of art and culture. Most visitors to this region begin their holiday sightseeing at the sea, where the coastline is marked with secluded bays, tranquil coves, and dramatic cliffs. The lush Mediterranean landscape is home to flourishing towns and charming villages, each steeped in its own culture, art, and traditions, and offering plenty of local places to visit. This ancient land is the birthplace of some well-known culinary favorites, including pizza and spaghetti. Campanians were among the first Europeans to use tomatoes not only as an ornamental plant, but also as food and garnish. The region is renowned for its fruits and vegetables--but its best-known product is mozzarella cheese.

Amalfi Coast travel guide

4.2
Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks · Gardens
Renowned for its beautiful landscape and medieval fishing villages that cling precariously to the Mediterranean cliffs, the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's top vacation destinations. This World Heritage Site stretches for about 50 km (30 mi) on the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and offers numerous places to visit, from terraced lemon gardens and whitewashed villas to cliff-top views of the sea. Explore the coastline's towns, bays, and resorts. During the peak tourist season, the Amalfi Coast's single seaside road is often jammed with dozens of buses. For that reason, the ubiquitous scooter may be the best way to get around and sightsee. You can also access quite a bit by bicycle.
