    Southern Italy or Mezzogiorno is the traditional term for the southern regions of Italy, encompassing the southern section of the continental Italian Peninsula and the two major islands of Sicily and Sardinia. It coincides with the administrative regions of Basilicata, Campania, Calabria, Puglia, Abruzzo, Molise, Sicily, and Sardinia. Some also include the most southern and eastern parts of Lazio within the Mezzogiorno, because these territories were part, along with all the already listed ones, of the historical Kingdom of Two Sicilies. Southern Italy carries a unique legacy of culture. It features many major tourist attractions, such as the Palace of Caserta, the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and other archaeological sites.

Some of its beaches, woodlands and mountains are preserved in several National Parks, other major examples include La Sila, a mountainous plateau occupying the provinces such as Cosenza and Catanzaro in the region of Calabria. Many medieval towns are located in Southern Italy. The history of Southern Italy boasts numerous kings, queens, princes, dukes, counts, popes, writers, poets, philosophers, knights, artists, architects, craftsmen, musicians, scholars, scientists, politicians, inventors and mathematicians.
