Recent Italy reviews

  • Great place

    "We stayed at this lovely Villa for eight nights. It is delightful. Built hundreds of years ago but all the modern conveniences. The owner, Barbara, is delightful and speaks perfect English. The town is a small walled City with a great restaurant and marvelous historical sites. It is in a perfect location but tucked in the mountains away from everything. Only 20 minutes from some of the loveliest places in Italy. We would come back without a doubt"

  • Beautiful Apt in amazing medieval city

    "Wonderful apartment, everything we could have wanted, spent the evenings looking out the window at the view of the ocean. Beautiful little town, spent a couple days just wandering around in it! A bit of a hike to major cities (1.5 hours to Pisa, Siena, 2 to Florence), and would definitely recommend having a car, otherwise totally perfect!"

  • Superb location

    "We were a party of 10 adults and the apartment exceeded expectations. Host was extremely helpful in organising tours, together with transfers prior to arrival, as well as once we were there. Withing a reasonable walking distance of all the main sites of interest, with the Pantheon almost on your doorstep."

  • What a great holiday and lovely house

    "We stayed in the house for a week from saterday untill saterday end of April. We visited with our kids aged 2 and 4. We really enjoyed this lovely house and the surroundings. Everyday we had breakfast on the terrace just outside the kitchen. Then we went to the piazza (the little square) for some coffee and just watch the local Italian life come to life. Stimigliano is a nice small village where you are the only tourists. Very friendly people. In the afternoon we mostly stayed at the pool cause the kids loved it. I also liked the fact that the pool and terrace were very close to the house so you don't loose sight of the kids. In the evening we went to the restaurant Da Lina for pizza or pasta. We also tried a restaurant in Vescuvio which was very nice connected to a church. But Da Lina was just 5 min drive from the house so very convenient and great food. Thanks for mentioning the new outlet shopping center outside of Stimigliano in your welcome book, I enjoyed going shopping there. We had planned to take the train from Stimigliano to Rome for a day but we loved relaxing at the pool so much we never got to it! We will have to come back next year. Thanks for a lovely week. Greetz Anna Lambrechts & family"

Campania Travel Tips

Come to Campania for a Real Italian Experience

If you are planning a vacation to Italy, you should definitely consider Campania. Campania, Italy is known for its beautiful landscapes, pleasant year-round spring-like climate, rich textures and colors, and so much more. Time spent in Campania, Italy villas allow you the opportunity to enjoy nature, art and culture, archaeology, and authentic Italian cuisine. It has been a prime destination for centuries, starting with the ancient Romans who loved this region immensely. Once you arrive, you will know exactly why.

The Culture is Inescapable

The history of Campania reaches far back to the 9th century B.C. with the founding of Partenope. During the age of the Roman Empire, the rich would visit the region to enjoy its thermal spas. Traces of these spas remain today, despite the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. which devastated the ancient towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Centuries later, we still learn from archaeological digs uncovering monuments, temples, and everyday homes. These ancient towns are open for tours and learning experiences alike. To get a real taste of the art and culture of Campania, you absolutely must visit Naples. It is a lively, friendly city full of theater, museums, and monuments. The adorable pen-air cafes and plenty of shopping don't hurt either!

The Food and Drink

Booking Campania, Italy accommodations simply means that you will not only have a wonderful vacation but a gastronomical adventure. Thinking of the food of Campania, you cannot avoid the thought of pizza. Around the 19th century, a Neapolitan cook invented the dish which would later become a worldwide favorite. You can only get “real” pizza right in Campania so do not delay! The pizza is indescribably good, consisting of San Marzano tomatoes and fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese. Of course, aside from the pizza, the seafood is to die for with fresh mussels from along the coast. And do not forget the locally made Limoncello di Sorrento, a lemon-based liqueur, delicious on its own or with dessert.

Arriving in Campania, Italy

Unfortunately, there are no direct flights into Campania, Italy but there are more than enough inbound flights to the surrounding areas. The Almalfi Coast Airport, also known as the Salerno Airport, is about an hour and a half away by car. Naples International Airport, about an hour and 45 minutes, is another option, with the most direct inbound flights from major hub airports including JFK, Dublin, and London Heathrow. Arriving by train is another possibility but the rail can be quite slow. If you do decide to take the train, your best bet is to arrive in Naples or Salerno then transfer to a bus that goes into town.

Getting Around Campania

Do not worry. If you are nervous about driving in another country, you do not have to during your stay in Campania, Italy vacation rentals! The public transportation system offers a unified ticket system known as Campania Unico. This means that tickets are categorized into zones and with just one ticket, you can travel within one or more zones. There is a maximum time limit for the ticket and the zones radiate out from Napoli which means travel is made easy. The system includes buses and national trains but not ferries. Just be sure to ask the agent when purchasing your tickets if you have any questions.

Things to see and Do

Because of the rich cultural history and beautiful setting, Campania has plenty to offer. While staying right in town is just fine and will fill your days with the local markets and eateries, day trips are a perfect way to explore the area. For one, the Statue of Liberty in Central Naples is a must-see! Another big lure of the Campania region is the ocean. The Amalfi coast is like no other, peppered with mountainside towns that seemingly tumble into the sea. Spend the day visiting Ischia, Capri or even Procida as well.

Do not Miss the History

Italy is filled with ancient cities, especially the areas surrounding Campania. One in particular, Calitri, should be at the top of your list. Located in the center of Italy, it lies between the ruins of Pompeii and the Amalfi coast. On your way to the ancient village, you will see aristocratic palazzos, castles, and historical sites.
