Naples and the Campania area

Want to escape city life? The Campania area is great for hiking and visiting historical sights like Pompeii and Herculaneum. You will be staying in an agriturismo where you can enjoy local, organic products from the surrounding land.

Overnighting in the countryside

You will be staying in a plain, but cozy apartment situated on a hill overlooking Vico Equense. Ideal for a family holiday or if you’re traveling on a budget with a group. Owners, husband and wife Esmeralda and Franco, take care of the surrounding land together with their siblings and cousins, nieces and dogs. They also run the restaurant next door where you will have complimentary breakfast every morning. On Mondays they are closed but you'll get a nice basket to have your breakfast in your accommodation. At the restaurant  they also serve meals (optional) prepared with fresh ingredients from their organic garden.

Hiking in the Campania area

The Campania area is great for hiking. There are numerous hiking trails, some simple, some more challenging, like the famous Sentiero degli Dei. Franco knows the best walking trails and takes you to the starting point of your walking tour. From there you can explore the area on your own. Franco will pick you up at the end of your walk of course. Upon request we can arrange for a local guide to accompany you. 

Guided trip to Herculaneum

Vico Equense lies at the foot of the Vesuvius. A must see in this area is Herculaneum (Ercolano). Like Pompeii, Herculaneum was destroyed by the eruption of the mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Uncovered from 16 meters of ashes and lava, this UNESCO World Heritage site gives you a clear idea of the immenseness of the volcanic eruption. Certified guide and archeologist Ludovica will tell you all about it.

Join the Guidas in the countryside

Family Guida, Rosa and Gennaro, welcome you to their lovely home in the countryside. Communicating can be somewhat challenging, as the elderly couple only speak Italian. But don’t worry. Their son Guiseppe and his wife Raffaela own an English school. Frequently scholars will pass by the house and would love to practice their English with you. Together with them you will spend an afternoon in the organic garden and learn some local traditions.
