One of the most visited regions in Southern Italy is Campania. With its diverse landscape, Roman Empire and ancient Greek heritage, as well as excellent buffalo mozzarella it is easy to understand the attraction. Straddling cliffs that roll into the Mediterranean Sea, chic islands, archaeological sites, emerald grottoes, imposing Mount Vesuvius and mythical rocks are some of the treasures of this region that are waiting to be explored. Sorrento is an ideal base for visiting the enchanting town of Ravello, the exclusive village of Positano, and Amalfi, whose spectacular cathedral dates back to the 11th century and overlooks its main square, the Piazza Duomo. Maratea, further south, takes you into the unspoilt region of Basilicata which is steeped in history. Greek ruins, medieval abbeys, castles and churches are in abundance whilst the dramatic coastline, which touches the Tyrrehenian Sea, further enhances the mountainous landscape.
