Borghi in Campania

Campania is a territory rich in history and splendid villages overlooking the sea and the inland hills. The Amalfi Coast, famous throughout the world, welcomes thousands of Italian and foreign tourists each year visiting the pearls of Campania such as Positano, Amalfi or Atrani. The Archipelago of the Flegrean Islands, in the Gulf of Naples, holds authentic jewels like the village of Procida, with its colorful houses and the picturesque fishermen's quarter. On the slopes of Vesuvius, art and archeology are the masters. And if you are looking for a village suspended in time (and on the tuff), Sant’Agata de ’Goti, at the foot of Mount Taburno, is a must.
