See Naples - and fall in love!
The biggest attraction in Campania is Pompeii, as well as the Cappella Sansevero. There is hardly any evidence today of the former wealth of this affluent city. Since 1997, Pompeii has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Palazzo Reale served the house of Savoy as an impressive residence until 1946. The former residence of the Bourbon-Sicily royal house may not be as big as your apartment in Naples, but you are a guest in your residence. Castel Sant'Elmo is one of the city's landmarks. The 14th-century fortress is visible from afar, just like the Monastery of Certosa di San Martino. Not far from Barano d'Ischia is Ischia
. The almost 10-kilometer-large island of Capri is worth a trip. The Blue Grotto is fascinating. The cave is illuminated in blue by the penetrating sunlight. Do not spend too much time in your accommodation but visit as many attractions as possible. A trip to Capri, another excursion away from the holiday apartment takes you to Herculaneum. At that time, there was certainly no apartment like yours, with Wi-Fi and views of Naples. Rent your holiday apartment from a private owner in the center spontaneously or choose your domicile well in advance. Make sure to choose your apartment so that it is close to the old town and there is enough space for your pet. The Bourbon Tunnel is part of underground Naples and is worth a visit. Adventure tours and standard guided tours through the caves are offered. After visiting the tunnel, you can take a nice walk on the nearby promenade or through the alleys. Also, admire the most beautiful churches in the city with their magnificent frescoes. Many attractions can be reached on foot within minutes from your holiday accommodation, for example in Vomero on the hill of the same name or in another neighborhood. Dare to explore the surroundings.
Perfect for art lovers

The Sorrento Peninsula in Italy impresses with breathtaking cliffs, on which another jewel of the Campania region awaits you. Sorrento is an idyllic coastal town on the Bay of Sorrento, perfect for a day trip. Or book an apartment or a house near the coast from a private owner. Stroll through the historic city center of Sorrento
and visit the 14th-century Chiesa di San Francesco. The Maschio Angioino, Castel Nuovo, is one of Naples' most famous sights. The "New Castle" served as both a fortress and a residence. In the west wing of the castle, the Civic Museum provides more information about Napoli's exciting city history. Like the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii, the ancient Neapolitan city of Herculaneum also disappeared beneath the lava flows of Vesuvius. Today, things are much quieter in the Cappella Sansevereo, a charming baroque church with marble sculptures. Before you return to your cozy holiday apartment in the historic center, visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara or a museum in Sorrento. Archaeologically speaking, the city is a treasure trove. The catacombs of Naples in Campania are a thousand-year-old monument to the faith of the Neapolitans. Among them is the Catacomb of San Gennaro, which lies cut into the tuff rock and, with its 5,600 square meters under the hill of Capodimonte, houses 2,000 burial sites and 500 niche tombs.
