I think that the ornate royal residences are on the itineraries of all breeds of travelers and tourists. May be because, only a few uber rich may be able to afford and own those residences. The majority of tourists, thus, like to pay small entry fee to experience the magnificence of the palaces for a while. If you visit Caserta in Campania, Italy, do not miss the Royal Palace (Caserta) of eighteenth century, which is now on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. Inspired by the Palace of Versailles, this grandiose Bourbon palace fits beautifully in its scenic surroundings.

Getting around the hub of southern Italy is a lot easier than its sounds. Naples, the capital of the Campania region, is served by Capodichino International Airport. Here you can get direct flights to many European destinations which are served by regional airlines. You can also catch flights to and from the United States, off-season with a stop in Dublin, Brussels, Rome or France, or during the summer months when low cost carrier EuroFly flies direct between Capodichino and New York’s JFK Airport.

Italians love to eat but the cuisine of the northern region of Tuscany is quite different from that of the southern region of Campania. Northern dishes are traditionally more meaty and hearty, like a ribollita; while those in the south highlight fish because of their proximity to the sea. Yet, that’s not to say that any less attention is given to incredible pasta dishes and desserts. So here are the Top 5 dishes to try while touring Campania

Naples is synonymous with presepe or Nativity scenes. From the big cathedrals to public squares right down to the small houses – there’s hardly any place where you wouldn’t find one! Setting up a nativity scene is a source of great pride for these Italians and is an art that is passed on from generation to generation. The nativity scene is said to have been first created by St Francis of Assisi in 1223 when he conducted a Christmas mass in the town of Greccio. It is usually set up around December 8th and continues right up to epiphany on January 6th.

If that old saying is true – “a picture is worth a thousand words,” then half a century of film archives must be priceless for telling the story and the beauty of Italy’s Campania region. Many of the old Hollywood classics portray southern Italy in a simpler time and the black and white images add to the romance of the love stories and the sinister nature of the tales involving crime and mystery.

Classic Hollywood movies of the 1950s and 1960s shaped our early view of southern Italy both as a destination full of love and passion and as a sinister, dark hotbed of corruption. Yet, in the 1990s, filmmakers explored the more colorful side of Campania, often making its lush scenery as much a part of the plot as the characters themselves.

Naples has a slightly bizarre ‘love it or hate it’ reputation within the travel industry. Some see the city as having a unique charm and character when compared to the almost obsessively clean cities in other countries, while others see Naples as a filthy crime ridden hole. Whichever side of this debate you happen to be on almost everyone agrees that Naples makes a great base for exploring the deliciously appealing sights of the wider Campania region.
