Stretching along the Tyrrhenian Sea, Campania is noted for its mild climate, picturesque coast, outstanding culinary tradition, and rich legacy of art and culture. Most visitors to this region begin their holiday sightseeing at the sea, where the coastline is marked with secluded bays, tranquil coves, and dramatic cliffs. The lush Mediterranean landscape is home to flourishing towns and charming villages, each steeped in its own culture, art, and traditions, and offering plenty of local places to visit. This ancient land is the birthplace of some well-known culinary favorites, including pizza and spaghetti. Campanians were among the first Europeans to use tomatoes not only as an ornamental plant, but also as food and garnish. The region is renowned for its fruits and vegetables--but its best-known product is mozzarella cheese.
