Travel and Culture in Campania
Most part of the region’s territory is hilly and mountainous, but Naples stands in the flat coastal area near the Vesuvius, which is 1279 mt high. In the Gulf of Naples we find the beautiful islands that characterize this territory: Capri, Ischia and Procida.
Vesuvius’ slopes are abundantly cultivated because of the fertility of their soil, which create a really special landscape, with typical scents, too given by the presence of orchards and citrus orchards, in particular.
If you want to reach Naples by plane, the biggest airport is Capodichino (Naples), that allows you to reach easily the regional capital and, from there, to travel to the most important islands.
Ferries and hydrofoils leave from Pozzuoli and allow you to reach Ischia and Capri, where you can also stay for some days.
Otherwise, if you use the car, leaving from the North or from the South, the right motorway is, of course, the A1 that allows you to reach Neaples and, from there, all the other destinations (including the ports with the ferry service).
The railway line follows the motorway and leads you to the coastal and inland places through the main roads. Moreover, there are other railway lines in the city, as the circumvesuviana station, the Phlegraean Fields station and the Mergellina one. There is also the underground, with its two lines and the Seaside Metrò, that takes you to different seaside resorts.
