North of Naples Birding in Italy Trip
A full-day birding in Italy trip along the northern Campania coastline visiting the most interesting wetlands of the region. Starting from Naples where we will explore a huge diversity of environments: lagoons, reedbeds, volcanic lakes, and river mouths.
During the year more than 100 species of birds can be spotted here including migratory, wintering, and nesting species and, often, rarities too! This area is renowned for Mozzarella and our lunch stop will give you the chance to test the best version of this cheese you will ever taste.
The first part of this Italian birdwatching trip will be focused on identifying the highest number of species; the second part has the goal to make you enjoy a now underestimated but historically very much appreciated- area of the region: the fascinating Phlegrean Fields.
For food and wine fanatics, we can combine your North of Naples birding trip with a wine tour.
For those who would like to have a short urban birding tour, we also offer half-day trips in Naples, which, with its view on the Mediterranean Sea, its cliffs, and its urban parks, offer excellent opportunities for urban birding.
Half-day tours may also include nearby natural environments such as coastal wetlands.
In addition, we can guide you in other gems of the region as the majestic Mount Vesuvius, the Sorrento Peninsula, and the islands of Capri, Ischia, and Procida. These world-famous places not only offer some of the most breathtaking landscapes of Europe but as well a very good opportunity for birding and wildlife watching.
