A Vacation in Cilento and South Italy

Coastal Trails Mountains by the Sea Archeology and Nature

Located in Campania Region, Cilento has all the ingredients that visitors to Italy look for:

beaches and seaside activities 
a national park under the protection of Unesco 
spectacular coastal and inland panoramas 
history, traditions, culture 
great wine, food and the Mediterranean diet 

Greek colonizers landed along the coasts of Cilento in the 7th century BC and founded Poseidonia (the Roman Paestum). Of major interest are:

The Excavations and the Museum of Paestum surrounded by well-kept Roman walls which are 5 km long. It includes the three famous and imposing Doric temples of the VI and V century BC, and the Archeological Museum which houses the precious fresco of The Diver.
