The jewel in Italy’s crown, bella Roma is one of the most breath-taking cities in all of Europe. Bursting with ancient remains and architecture that will transport you back to the days of the Roman Empire, the city also boasts relics from the Renaissance, with mosaiced churches filled with master art works around every corner and across every piazza. Rome isn’t the only place you should visit for a taste of ancient civilization, as down south in the region of Campania, the derelict town of Pompeii is waiting for you with its dusty remains, preserved by the eruption of domineering Mount Vesuvius that can be seen ominously in the distance. But Campania isn’t all about Roman ruins, as it is also home to a variety of delightful towns and attractions that are peppered along the azure Amalfi Coast, where you can see breath taking panoramas of plunging cliffs and views out to the Tyrrhenian Sea. From the fashionable Isle of Capri (renowned for welcoming many celebrities and designer shops, but also for its dazzling Blue Grotto) to the sun-kissed lemon groves of Amalfi, there’s something for everyone in this diverse region.
