One of the biggest attractions in Campania is Pompeii. This is the town at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius that was destroyed thousands of years ago when the volcano errupted suddenly. Because of the intense heat and ash, the remains of many homes, tools, and even people are completely intact, and thousands of visitors come here each year to pay homage. The site includes a guided tour that can be given in English, as well has historical information on the town of Pompeii and the events of what took place when the volcano errupted. Another huge attraction for Campania is the Amalfi Coast. Though it is actually a stretch of coast that runs along several towns in the area, travelers love to drive on the road that seems to hover above the cliffs and ocean below. You can either rent your own car or be driven along the coast, and you can stop periodically to take pictures and just enjoy the scenery. This is one of the most beautiful spots in Italy, and it is a trademark of Italy. Another place that tourists like to go is the Isle of Capri. This is another amazing location that most tourists try to visit at least once. There are many musuems throughout the region as well, and if you go to Naples you will see just how many there are in that one city alone.
