Vesuvius and the Golden Mile

Archeological and Culinary Excursions

The ancient Romans called d this region of Italy Campania Felix. Then and now, Happy Campania is famed for its ancient ruins, coastal resorts and world renowned culinary traditions. Naples Bay is framed by the Vesuvius, affectionately and fearfully referred to by the local inhabitants as The Monster.

The Golden Mile, the area between the volcano and the sea is one of the most densely populated communities in the world; it is so named for the very fertile orange, lemon and mandarin groves that can be found here as well as the mild climate, the spectacular views of the bay and 122 neoclassical and rococo’ villas that were built in the 18th Century during the Bourbon Dynasty. It was during this period that work began to unearth the ruins of Herculaneum.
