Campania

Home to Naples, one of the largest cities in Italy, Campania is the third most populated region in the country. Located on the south-east Mediterranean coast, it is rich in food, architecture and Roman history. One of the most iconic sites in the region is Mount Vesuvius, a volcanic peak that overlooks 3 million inhabitants of Naples. To this day it is considered the most dangerous volcano on earth due to the sheer number of inhabitants below it.

Other than the famous ruined Roman city of Pompeii, the region is arguably home to one of the most widely eaten dishes in the world – pizza. Naples has been regarded the birth place of pizza, with a plain focaccia base having toppings added and the end result being what we have today.

You will also find spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams), insalata caprese (tomato, mozzarelle and basil salad) and some of the most evocative ingredients in Italy: Amalfi lemons, walnuts from Sorrento and San Marzano tomatoes.
