The region of Campania on the south-west coast of Italy is home to one of the world's most famous and most beautiful coastlines - the Amalfi Coast. This spectacular area draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to enjoy the mildness of the climate, the exotic vegetation of palms, lemon and orange trees and the remarkable sandstone cliffs which plunge dramatically into the turquoise Mediterranean sea.
It is on these cliffs, where man has constructed one of the most magnificent road systems in the world, driving over it will have you bracing yourself for the next fabulous view at every corner.
Campania is not only famous for what is probably the most romantic coastline in the world, but also for the remarkable garden-covered islands of Ischia and Capri and the fabled city of Pompeii where 400 years before the birth of Jesus Christ lava from Mt. Vesuvius almost instantly covered over one of the ancient world's most advanced city centers.
We offers fabulous tours of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of Capri and Ischia, and the famous archaeological ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Contact us today, or visit our Amalfi Coast Tour center to find out more.
Although not as many tourists travel south of Salerno, located at the southern most-point of the Amalfi Coast, we recommend that you take the time to visit Paestum, Palinuro, the grotta of Pertosa and Padulla, which you can read about on the subsequent pages.
The important thing to remember about Campania is that it is a very large region; and in the countryside, while it is still very beautiful, it is also still very poor and not many people speak English nor see tourists in these parts. While this region is improving its tourists infrastruture, in many instances there is still much to be desired. The point is, that it is important plan ahead an be prepared when you travel south of the Amalfi Coast.
