Campania is one of the most beautiful regions of southern Italy, which extends along the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea from Lazio in the north to Basilicata in the south-west. In the east the region borders with Molise and Apulia. Campania is divided into five provinces: Avellino, Benevento, Caserta, Naples and Salerno. The capital of the region is Naples. The region includes the islands of the Gulf of Naples: Ischia, Procida and Capri.

Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.
It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragonese culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1861 when it became part of the new state Italy.
Campania is rich in culture, especially in regards to gastronomy, music, architecture, archeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fertile countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri
Today the region attracts tourists from all over the world by richness of its history, art, culture and insanely beautiful views. On its territory there is an active volcano Mount Vesuvius. The coasts of Campania have been a favorite resort of the most demanding tourists for over three thousand years.
