Napoli, is the capital of the Campania region. It was founded between the 7th and 6th centuries BC by the Greeks and was named Neapolis, which means new city. The historic centre of Napoli has earned the UNESCO World Heritage Site denomination. It has one of the biggest historical city centres in the world, and its pride are the 448 historical and monumental churches, the highest number in the World for a single city. Its territory, particularly the iconic sight of the gulf of Napoli is arguably one of the most powerful symbolic images of Italy.

Caserta and Francolise

The Royal Palace of Caserta is a former royal residence in Caserta, constructed for the Bourbon kings of Napoli. In 1997, the Palace was designated as UNESCO World Heritage you think that it's enough?

Francolise is the place where we will be our European Night! An awesome manor-house with swimming pool, table tennis and a very large garden.


Santa Maria di Castellabate is a southern Italian town and hamlet of Castellabate, in the province of Salerno. It is the most populated and the seat of the town hall building. The town is a part of "Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park", its natural environment is composed of "Maquis", which is typical of mediterranean countries. It attracts a lot of tourism, especially in summer, because of good road links to Agropoli, Salerno and Naples and because of the quality of its water.


Procida is one of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. The name of this island comes from the Greek verb prokeitai, meaning 'it lies forth', because of the appearance of the island seen from the sea. Procida has been chosen as a film set for numerous films (more than 30 movies)including The Postman and The Talented Mr. Ripley.


Dive with us in the history visiting Pompeii, an ancient Roman town near modern Napoli that was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Today it has UNESCO World Heritage Site status and is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy, with approximately 2.5 million visitors every year.
