But Campania also offers other beautiful and breathtaking landscapes: the Amalfi Coast and the Sorrento Peninsula are two unmissable places, plunged in a timeless atmosphere and surrounded by one of the most beautiful sea-sceneries in the world. Moreover, you cannot miss is a day trip to Capri, an enchanting island that still echoes the atmosphere of the past.
Then if you still have time available, from Naples you can reach the Royal Palace of Caserta, one of the greatest palaces in the world, an extraordinary testimony of the Bourbon family’s power in Italy.
