Campania is a region celebrated for its climate, the fertility of the land and the astonishingly beautiful landscapes. The territory is mostly gentle hills, apart from the Matese mountains bordering Molise and the rugged Irpinia area.
Agriculture is mostly intensive, cattle raising and fishing are declining, industries are mostly concentrated in the Neapolitan area, and crafts based on coral and ceramics are still quite important. But the greatest resource is probably tourism, since Naples, Capri, Sorrento, Pompei, Paestum, Positano, Amalfi, Caserta and its Royal Palace - just to mention a very few - are world-famous destinations.
