There's a lot to experience in Campania, more than you can possibly imagine. You have to go to the Amalfi coast of course, but consult our travel articles below for more trip suggestions.

Artisan Beer Festival

Published in Campania Food

The Salotto della Birra Artigianale or Italian Artisan Beer Festival is the first of its kind in southern Italy. The first event took place in January 2008 in 'La Fabbrica dei Sapori' located in Battipaglia and was the brainchild of journalist Luciano Pignataro.

There is growing interest in artisan beer production across the Italian regions and many small breweries are cropping up. For example, a guided beer tasting at the Salotto featured Chiostro 'Irish Red', 'Fortemalto Triple' by the Svevo Brewery and 'Fahrenheit' by Maltovivo.

Minestra Maritata soup recipe

Published in Campania Recipes

This heavy soup is traditionally part of the Easter menu in Naples.

It was a classic peasant dish or 'piatto povero' and was brought over to Campania by the Spanish, the Aragonese to be precise.

This warming winter dish tastes best with vegetables in season and is also known as pignatto grasso.

Make sure the vegetables are boiled just enough to retain a certain crispness.

Guide to Capri

Published in Campania Itineraries

Capri is one of three islands, along with Ischia and Procida, which stand as sentinels to the Bay of Naples.

It is reachable by ship or hydrofoil from either Sorrento, Napoli or Ischia, and on a calm summer day the water really does look like deep blue glass.
