Campania today and in antiquity is famous for its artwork and architecture, political intrigue, its geology and cultural mix, and of course its cuisine and wines! The region of the Bay of Naples is home to some of Italy’s most important communities, both present and past, where foreign aristocrats, famous artists and writers resided. In antiquity the region served as the retreats for ancient Roman emperors, senators, and other elites of society. Much of that changed on 24 August AD 79 when Mount Vesuvius erupted, covering Pompeii, Herculaneum, and many luxury villas around it. That was not the only eruption of note: the last one took place during WW II and was captured on film by the Allied Forces based near ancient Paestum. Since then, the region has re-emerged as a bustling port, and has become synonymous with the invention of pizza and the homeland of actress Sophia Loren. Join us as we immerse ourselves in the vibrant lifestyles of Campanians through time.
