Spend your holidays in Cilento National Park

Between nature, history and art | Velia, Paestum and the hinterland

VeliaThe Cilento is a vast area in the southern part of the province of Salerno. There is much to discover here: 100 km of coastline from Sapri to Agropoli, historic villages in the hills and in the mountainous interior, the Calore Gorge near Felitto, the ghost town of Roscigno Vecchia and the caves of Castelcivita. Paestum, the ancient city of Magna Graecia, famous for its well-preserved temples, is a 30-minute drive away. The archaeological site of Velia, on the other hand, is only 10 minutes away. Those who prefer hiking or cycling can take advantage of the surrounding countryside inland. The picturesque roads that run along the slopes of the Cilento Mountains offer breathtaking views and absolute tranquility at every turn. The small villages clinging to the surrounding heights (Cannicchio, Pollica, Celso, Galdo, San Mauro) bear witness to ancient traditions such as the peasant production of olive oil, wine and the Cilento white fig. In summer, there is a hydrofoil service that offers an excellent way to visit the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri in one day.
