Naples and Campania

naplesOne thing is sure about Naples, it doesn't leave anybody indifferent, between those who can't stand its chaotic appearance and those who are allured by the personality of the city and its inhabitants.
Between the popular Spanish district and the villas on the top of the town, contrasts are everywhere, like the churches of a luminous decoration and their chefs d'oeuvres which one can discover traversing a dark and badly maintained streets.
It is thus the atmosphere of a city older than Rome which touches the traveller, its churches, its castles, palates, its archaeological museum, and its bay dominated by the imposing and untameable mass of an unforeseeable Vesuvius.

amalfi coastThe Campania region is a marvellous area and of a rare variety. Thus, the Amalfi coast is maybe the most beautiful in Mediterranean, with its old villages build on the hillsides plunging towards the sea, its cliffs, its luxuriant vegetation. The garden island of Capri is full of charms.
