Campania, the Italian region of which Naples is the capital, has a long history stretching back to its colonization by the ancient Greeks, and despite earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, remains one of the most populous areas of Europe. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, this volume explores the region's astonishing heritage of Greek and Roman monuments, including the wonders of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum, Sorrento and Capri, while special features focus on its role in literature, archaeology and volcanology.
