Experience Naples with us

Southern Italy takes visitors down less travelled paths, into a world of colourful traditions, inviting tables, splendid terrain and lazy beaches. The relatively unspoiled ‘Mezzogiorno’ area, named after the blazing Sun, includes the regions of Basilicata, Calabria, Molise, Campania, and Puglia. Basilicata’s landscape is marked by rugged hills and steep valleys strewn with small towns and charming villages, where the piquant cuisine is truly delightful.
