There are charming seaside villages, fine beaches, ancient ruins, and Roman and Renaissance palaces filled with provoking artwork. Campania vacation rentals will put you right in the middle of picture-postcard scenery with pastel structures overlooking the Mediterranean Sea—and the mouthwatering local cuisine, lively street scene and exciting nightlife don't hurt, either. By the end of your vacation, you'll find Campania so captivating that you'll wish you could stay longer.

The sun will keep you company in Campania

In winter, from November to January, temperatures can drop to 41 degrees. Although Campania tends to be wet in October and November, you can expect constant sunshine in the region. Campania vacation rentals are typically busy all year round, but you can score awesome deals and avoid tourist crowds if you visit in April or May, when spring flowers blanket the countryside.

Natural features

The hills are alive, thanks to Mt. Vesuvius

In ancient Roman times, Campania went by the name "Campania felix," meaning "fertile land." Though much of its terrain is hilly, with a mountainous eastern side, Campania's soil is rich in minerals, allowing the region to produce a wide array of vegetable and fruit varieties, including grapes for making wine. One of the reasons Campania is so fertile is Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano that buried Pompeii and Herculaneum in the 1st century AD. Apparently, Mt. Vesuvius is more than just a big bad that went boom and caused destruction—it's a life-giver, too.
