Roughly 35% of Campania is covered by mountains, which dominate much of the inland region. More than 50% of the total area of Campania is hilly terrain. The remaining 15% is made up of plains.
Much of the coastline features rugged cliffs covered in lemon trees and other vegetation. The Amalfi
coast and the Sorrentine peninsula are exceptionally beautiful. The high mountains in the hinterland in the Cilento nature reserve are covered by woods, but the typical Mediterranean flora is found everywhere on the coast.
Many excellent vineyards cover the highlands in the Avellino province. Campania's local grape, the superb black Aglianico grape, and the equally fine white Greco di Tufo and Fiano are grown here.
