Trekking in Campania

Acheloo viaggi - The Path of the Gods

Summer has begun and for people like us, concerned with tourism, work is really hard. Everyone wants to leave. Some wants fun, others seek silence and relax. For those who want silence but also new experiences, we recommend some walks in Campania.
In our region there are amazing paths where you can walk passing through a wild nature and stunning views. Areas hiding caves and deep coves, suspended halfway between the heaven and the sea. We're talking about the "Path of the Gods", which starts from Agerola and finishes in Positano, on the Amalfitain coast.

This walk takes about 3 hours, and it is recommended to enjoy the Amalfitain coast from another point of view, enjoying nature and fantastic landscapes. There are other amazing paths in Campania. They are mountain paths passing through valleys and vineyards that climb the hills, through a succession of medieval villages perched on the rocks.
We can find these paths in the province of Avellino, also known as the "Green Irpinia", where summer is never too hot and unbearable, and where it is possible to walk through a wild nature, visit the famous wine cellars of Fiano, Taurasi and Aglianico wine, and taste typical dishes of the simple cooking of Irpinia at the old restaurants located on the path.

Easter in Procida

Easter is coming, the sun shines in the blue sky and we  want to leave, to go abroad visiting new places. But work still do not allow us to go for many days.
Anyway, during the days of Easter, we can try to take a city break somewhere without going too far!

Of the three islands in the Gulf of Naples, Procida the smallest, is a riot of colors between sky and sea, suspended in the blue of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Procida is a delightful town with an unspoilt nature, an island which still keeps much of its old charm especially in the succession of its narrow and quiet streets and squares, in the picturesque and coloured houses overlooking the sea or clinging to the rock.
The period of Easter is the best time to visit and experience the intensity of the island. The spiritual celebrations of Holy Week is an event keenly felt by the islanders involved with a deep religious faith in the show of the Passion. This is a moment of intense drama where the holy tradition is mixed  with the secular one. 
Good  Friday is the most important day. Following an ancient tradition that dates back to XVII century, people  bring the so-called Mysteries, floats prepared in secret by a small group of inhabitants of Procida.

The melancholic sound of the trumpet and roll of drums mark the measured tread of the religious procession that starts from “Terra Murata”, reaches the port of  “Marina Grande”, along the narrow streets crowded with inhabitants and tourists.

We can not describe this particular event, which must be experienced in person, mingling in the crowd of the street. We can  not capture in words the unspoilt beauty of the place. If you want to avoid mass tourism, a weekend in Procida is the right choice for anyone interested to know the island that has inspired writers and filmmakers around the world.

Finally Spring is coming. Days are longer, the sun shines, the sky is clear and the air is sweeter: this is the right time to spend a week end or more in the island of Ischia, in the Gulf of Naples, to enjoy the warm sun and the silent winter sea, the cozy thermal parks and the services of the luxurious spas, and to taste local food at the typical restaurants of the place in the evenings.

When the boat approaches the port, the tourist realizes that he is arriving in the garden of Eden.
Ischia is an island with undeniable charm that attracts people from all over the world.
It is a volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, at the northern end of the Gulf of Naples.
It is called the green island, the island of eternal spring, for its beaches, blue sea and spa resorts. The green hilly landscape is attractive, as are the little fishing ports, and you can enjoy a pleasant holiday without seeking out more developed attractions.
