Campania-Italy: the islands of the bay of Naples
In the enchanting gulf of Naples there are 3 wonderful islands that you cannot miss:
- Capri, the island known all over the world
- Procida island, small and very nice
- Ischia island with its aragonese castle, built in 474 BC by the tyrant of Syracuse Girone I, who had the whole island as a prize for helping the Cumans to repel the Etruscan invaders.

Antonio Barattiero, the web master
My name is Antonio Barattiero and I love my land, so I decided to create Around Naples website because I'd like the Campania region, especially the surroundings of Naples, to be able to become more and more popular all over the world.
I will never get tired of showing these wonderful lands to my friends and parents. Every time I retrace a fantastic tour into the art, myth, history and culture. I always feel exactly the same emotions about the first time.
It's impossible to describe the love inside my heart for these fantastic places. My goal is to make the visitors feel the same emotions.
There is so much work in this project and you will not find all that there is to visit in this region, surely. But bit by bit, every time I revisit a place, I will take new photos and create new pages of the site, in order to continue sharing with you the beauty of the Campania region in Italy.
