Campania, Italy

Campania holiday villas are a ticket to an old world of charm and lost days.  With accommodations to attract the most discriminating tastes, the Campania vacation rentals are home to exploration and understanding of many lost cities.  An ancient Roman city, vacation rentals in Campania now expose visitors to interactions with nature, inspirations from Roman artwork, exploration of history, and infatuation with the foods of the region.
Through the vast differences in the natural topography of Campania, visitors can get a beach rental to enjoy the Amalfi coast near several fishing villages under the Italian sun.  If strolling through soft hilly country side to take in the view of Vesuvis, the volcano set in the distance with lush vegetation growing on the slopes, excites the adventure seeker in you, then your vacation rental in Campania is the perfect place.  A short drive from any Campania vacation rental will take you to the archeological digs at Pompeii and Herculaneum.  Buried for centuries by volcanic ash, it’s worth the drive from your Campania vacation home to see the cities that nature preserved with a late night blast of lava.
Places to go while at your Campania rental home in Italy:

  • Pompeii / Mount Vesuvius:  Sight of the beautiful and destructive power of Mother Nature, Mount Vesuvius and the city of Pompeii serve as a shocking reminder of times when man and nature have collided with thousands of causalities.  Walking through Pompeii is a stark reminder of the instant and deadly results to the of the precious city inhabitants that still risk their lives in the gigantic shadow of Mount Vesuvius
  • Certosa e Museo di San Martino:  A charming piece of history reaches out to you upon entering this 14th century monastery.  With a beautiful fresco depicting the “Triumph of Judith,” each turns presents a step into history as it spreads across decades of Italian development.
  • Capri:  Legend and lore places the coast of Capri as the place where Odysseus almost submitted to the fate of the Sirens, the view of the coastline is breath taking in its efforts to draw you into the postcard miracle that is the perfect Italian setting.  Caught off guard by the sparkling blue waters rolling out to sea, you can almost image the sirens song calling to you across the whispers winds.

With a region of Italy so packed with culture, it seems strange to suggest eating an American favorite while at your Campania vacation rental home.  However…when in Rome…or Italy as the case may be…ordering a pizza in one of the restaurants local to your Campania holiday home will bring happiness to your mouth.  In the home of pizza, the restaurants recommend their pizzas, made with real San Marzano tomatoes and fiordilatte mozzarella cheese with a good bottle of wine to travelers to Campania holiday homes
