Discover an ancient civilisation with a villa in Pompei
If you're renting a holiday home in Campania then the province of Naples, including Pompei, has a wealth of tourist attractions.
Visit the famous volcano Mt Vesuvius
As Europe's only remaining active mainland volcano, the sight of Mount Vesuvius dominates the city of Pompei. When you're staying in one of the holiday accommodation in Pompei you can experience the thrills of climbing to the top. See the smoking summit and enjoy the stunning views across the Bay of Naples. Tourists staying in a villa in Pompei generally head to Pompeii to see the eerie ruins of the ancient town, which stands as a reminder of how powerful volcanoes can be. The ruins date back to AD 79, when they were buried due to the eruption, which preserved the streets and buildings.
Taking it further: nearby places of interest
The city of Naples has a large historical centre and is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the region. You should spend a day here when you're staying in holiday accommodation in Pompeii. There are over 400 churches to admire, and by climbing to the top of Castelnuovo, a large castle from medieval times, you can see across the Bay. This is another beautiful town in the area that you should visit when staying in a villa in Pompeii. It is positioned with an excellent vantage point of the Bay of Naples and you can head out to the island of Capri from here.
