Campania by boat

A recent project as a part of Signa Maris, which is an initiative by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Activities and Tourism to promote Italy, has been getting underway in Italy with the purpose of highlighting the wonders of southern Italy, including Campania.

The project aims to highlight the marinas located along the Italian coast to tourists travelling to the country by boat so that they have more information regarding the cultural heritages of some of the cities that are within easy reach of the touristic ports.

Among the regions highlighted is Campania, which offers holiday-makers an intertwining of history, natural beauty, art and ancient traditions, as well as some of the most stunning seaside resorts in Italy, including the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento and the island of Capri, which is a celebrated beauty spot. Notable attractions on the island of Capri are Villa Jovis, which was the home of the Emperor Tiberius, the Natural Arch, the quiet and refined Anacapri, and the Grotta Azzurra, which is a magical blue-lit cave that can be reached using a small rowing boat.

Another popular destination in the heart of Campania is Ischia, which is home to some fine spas and also offers travelers the freshest seafood, making it an ideal place to relax and unwind. However, Ischia also has much to entertain those interested in history and architecture, such as the magnificent Aragonese Castle, and there are also a number of film festivals that take place during the summer for those interested in Italian culture and the arts.

As well as the islands, Naples can also be easily reached by those traveling to Italy by boat. The Port of Saint Lucia is a small marina near the heart of the city, allowing holiday-makers to discover Naples’ beautifully conserved eighteenth century buildings and churches, and Castle dell'Ovo, which overlooks the waters off the port. You can also enjoy a slice of pizza in its true birthplace!

Another stop that has to be a priority on any vacation to the Sorrentine Peninsula is the Amalfi Coast. This stretch of coastline is literally unforgettable: it features high and rugged coast that hides small villages and architectural gems, like Positano or Praiano, Furore or Vettica Maggiore. Here holiday-makers can discover the port of Conca dei Marini Amalfi, which is well equipped with facilities that cater to tourists. It is also home to cultural gems, such as the Cathedral, and also offers plenty of opportunities to see the local sights on foot, including spectacular waterfalls.

The region of Campania is a true gem of the Mediterranean and a must-stop on cruises featuring the Italian coast. The quaint village atmosphere of many of the coastal towns, the stunning scenery and fresh seafood cannot fail to impress even those with the most discerning of tastes!
