Campania featured in this month’s ITALIA! magazine

The region of Campania comes under the spotlight in the March edition of ITALIA! magazine, which has just gone on sale.
In the Best of Campania, property buying options in the area are explored, featuring examples of homes for sale in the less expensive towns and villages south of Amalfi.
Two romantic boutique hotels on Capri and in Amalfi are reviewed by hotel experts Mr and Mrs Smith.
And the ancient city of Cava de’ Tirreni is looked at in depth as a destination for a short break.
In a six-page feature ‘48 hours in Cava de’ Tirreni’, travel writer and Best of Sorrento editor Val Culley explores the beautiful town in the hills above the Amalfi coast. Cava de’ Tirreni used to be the most important city in Campania after Naples and was once a stop on the Grand Tour for travellers wishing to visit Pompei, the Amalfi coast or Paestum.
Cava's elegant porticoes
Although 47 kilometres south of Naples, Cava has the elegant porticoed streets reminiscent of a northern Italian town.

ITALIA! magazine Issue 88 March 2012 is now on sale in branches of W H Smith. For more information about the magazine visit
