Campania travel guide

Ruins · Landmarks · Art Museums
Stretching along the Tyrrhenian Sea, Campania is noted for its mild climate, picturesque coast, outstanding culinary tradition, and rich legacy of art and culture. Most visitors to this region begin their holiday sightseeing at the sea, where the coastline is marked with secluded bays, tranquil coves, and dramatic cliffs. The lush Mediterranean landscape is home to flourishing towns and charming villages, each steeped in its own culture, art, and traditions, and offering plenty of local places to visit. This ancient land is the birthplace of some well-known culinary favorites, including pizza and spaghetti. Campanians were among the first Europeans to use tomatoes not only as an ornamental plant, but also as food and garnish. The region is renowned for its fruits and vegetables--but its best-known product is mozzarella cheese.

Beaches · Ruins · Landmarks
Salerno is a city and comune in Campania (south-western Italy) and is the capital of the province of the same name. It is located on the Gulf of Salerno on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city is divided into three distinct zones: the medieval sector, the 19th century sector and the more densely populated post-war area, with its several apartment blocks.Salerno was an independent Lombard principality, Principality of Salerno, in the early Middle Ages. During this time, the Schola Medica Salernitana, the first medical school in the world, was founded. In the 16th century, under the Sanseverino family, among the most powerful feudal lords in southern Italy, the city became a great centre of learning, culture and the arts, and the family hired several of the greatest intellectuals of the time. Later, in 1694, the city was struck by several catastrophic earthquakes and plagues. After a period of Spanish rule which would last until the 18th century, Salerno became part of the Parthenopean Republic.In recent history the city hosted Victor Emmanuel III, the King of Italy, who moved from Rome in 1943 after Italy negotiated a peace with the Allies in World War II, making Salerno the home of the "government of the South" (Regno del Sud) and therefore capital of Italy for some months. Some of the Allied landings during Operation Avalanche (the invasion of Italy) occurred near Salerno. Today Salerno is an important cultural centre in Campania and Italy.
