THE CILENTO COAST

Those who love the sea cannot give up admiring the clear and clean waters of the numerous Cilento municipalities awarded the Blue Flags and Legambiente Sails in the years. The Cilento coast begins in Agropoli and ends in Sapri, with a very varied bathing offer. The sea on the Cilento coast is in fact characterized by the continuous succession of stretches of coast that can be reached by sea, interspersed with sandy beaches and easy access. From the characteristic village of Agropoli, passing through Santa Maria di Castellabate, Ascea, Pioppi, Acciaroli, without forgetting the splendid Punta Licosa, one of the first marine parks in Italy, a destination for underwater hikers and for all lovers of the pristine nature of the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano. Up to Palinuro, the most fashionable and famous seaside resort of Cilento, which is characterized by beautiful beaches and a coast full of ravines and sea caves, among which the most famous and visited is undoubtedly the Blue Grotto.

THE CILENTO HINTERLAN

A still intact and uncontaminated natural environment, characterized by hills, rivers, paths: the ideal place for lovers of outdoor walks and trekking. But the Cilento National Park is also speleology, with the splendid sites of the Castelcivita Caves and the Grotte dell’Angelo in Pertosa. Galleries, tunnels, immense caverns: an atmosphere that makes them unique in the world, a true enchantment for the beauty and shapes of the stalactites and stalagmites, fascinating examples of the fantasy and magic of nature. Sea, nature, food and wine, but also a lot of history and art. Cilento is in fact the seat of the two archaeological sites which, together with the excavations of Paestum, constitute the flagship of the history of the province of Salerno: the archaeological excavations of Velia, with the renowned Porta Rosa, and those of the Ancient Volcei in the Buccino area. But the beauties of Cilento do not end here: the Cilento area is in fact home to numerous testimonies of the Christian cult of its inhabitants. The most famous and well-known in the world is undoubtedly the Certosa di San Lorenzo in Padula, the largest monastic monument in southern Italy, where it is possible to visit, all year round, not only the splendid garden, but the immense and grandiose complex, with cloisters, altars and monks’ lodgings.
