Each view is an enchanting postcard picture, and such a great experience for the senses, with the feel of the air, the odours of the pine trees, lemons and oranges, which is why the ancients called this region "felix ager", a happy land.
History - Antiquity
Between 343 and 290 BC three wars were fought between Samnites and Romans, who finally occupied the region. Rich Roman families built villas and gardens in the beautiful Neapolitan Gulf, until the ominous Vesuvius eruption in 89 AD covered in lava the Roman cities of Pompei and Ercolanus.
