Overview

With its starlit isles, 24-karat resorts, and sapphire-shaded lagoons, Campania has been the crema di crema of Italian tourism ever since the Roman emperors headed here to work on their tans. Today, its siren call remains irresistible: with five of the top ten destinations in Italy for Americans—-captivating Capri, whirlwind Naples, seductive Sorrento, petrified Pompeii, and perfect Positano—-this region is second only to Tuscany for number of visitors per year. Covering it all, Fodor’s Naples, Capri and the Amalfi Coast is gorgeously written and “immensely useful” (to quote Conde Nast Traveler’s rave) but now ups the ante with a spectacular, new, photo-rich make-over.

Quintessential delights to be featured in unique, pictorial layouts, including “Remembrance of Things Pasta" (hey, pizza was born in Naples), "Mamma Mia, Sophia!" (on native girl Sophia Loren), and “Postcards from the Ledge" (on the Amalfi Drive, "road of a 1,001 bends")

Tantalizing 8-page color photo insert will capture Campania’s bluer-than-blue bays, glittering Baroque palaces, and skyhigh villages in all their glory

New chapter openers feature interactive maps and Planner Pages on how to make the most of traveler’s time

Plus new maps, “Voices of Italy” interviews, and an abbondanza of on-target restaurant and hotel reviews
