Campania region, south of Naples, is a land rich in culture, music, history, architecture and archaeological sites. The tour will bring the participants to the Isle of Capri, the most picturesque and visited place in Campania; Naples, with its castles and noble palaces, but also the city where pizza was conceived in its modern appearance and taste; Pompeii, the ancient Roman city buried in 79 AD following a massive eruption of Vesuvius; Sorrento, the lively seaside resort that houses the famous Limoncello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where there are a number of mountain towns that seem to fall into the sea and wonderful Positano. Campania is also a land with a rich gastronomy that has its roots in fresh local products.
