Campania’s elite trifecta of locally produced wines includes the effervescent Greco di Tufo, the lush Fiano di Avellino, and the deep-violet Taurasi, each recognized with the highest Designation of Origin an Italian wine can earn. Travelers will also love tasting the lively limoncello, a sweet liqueur made from locally grown lemons.

Mount Vesuvius Pompeii Fountain

One of the most visited places in the world, the incredible Roman ruins of Pompeii date back to 79 AD. Deep beneath the city of Naples lie the mystical catacombs of San Gennaro (the patron saint of Naples) and the underground theatre of Nero (the 5th emperor of Rome). Plus, just north of Naples, the 18th century Reggia di Caserta (Royal Palace of Caserta) features grand fountains and opulent gardens that complement the interior frescoes and bas-relief sculptures. It’s truly a humbling experience to witness these extraordinary monuments to history.

For adventure-seekers, Campania has a thrilling abundance of outdoor activities. Explore the hiking trails of Mt. Vesuvius, the sunken city of Baia in Naples Bay, the breathtaking beaches of the Amalfi Coast, and the captivating Island of Capri with its gorgeous Gardens of Augustus and mesmerizing Blue Grotto sea cave.

Made by generations of pizzaioli who are skilled in the art of dough kneading, Pizza Napoletana is the region’s legendary claim to fame. But Campania’s culinary heritage extends well beyond its royal pizza. It’s also highly acclaimed for fresh seafood such as impepata di cozze (steamed, peppery mussels), and dishes such as gnocchi alla Sorrentina (potato gnocchi, tomato sauce, Mozzarella, and basil).

The handheld street foods of Naples are served in convenient cuoppos (paper cone cups filled with fried bites of calamari, Mozzarella, mini arancini, potato croquettes, and stuffed panzerotti). For the perfect complement to Campania’s favorite street foods and traditional dishes, try Galbani® Fresh Mozzarella!

No meal is complete in Campania without the sweet delicacies of baba al rum (sponge cake soaked in rum) or sfogliatelle (pastry filled with Ricotta, candied fruit, or almond paste).
