Some suggestions

Archaeology and history

The world famous archaeological sites of Paestum with its three majestic Greek temples. The National Museum of Paestum is a real jewel with its treasures of finds such as ceramics, sculptures, wall paintings and funerary items from tombs. Among them is the unique wall painting called "Tomb of the Diver". 


Archaeological excavations of Velia (Elea), ancient seat of the eleatic School of Philosophy of Parmenides (V century b. C.). The site lies amidst of olive-tree plantations on the slopes of Marina di Ascea with a spectacular view over the sea.


Ancient villages and monuments

A very large choice of wonderful, well preserved ancient villages, churches, convents, monasteries, castles, old villas, archaeological monuments, work of art and rural museums. Some examples:

San Severino di Centola,
a since 1950 abandoned ghost-village in a spectacular position amidst the rocks of the peak of a mountain.

Pioppi and the Sea Museum in the antique Palazzo Vinciprova. The museum shows typical living spaces of the Mediterranean in different depth. Also unique are the position and the old stone-wall rooms of the building.

Pollica, the old Franciscan monastery.


Pure nature

The Cilento National Park does not only mean a spectacular coast. It also means mountains, woods, rivers and natural oasis with a variety of rare and therefore protected plants and animals. Just above San Mauro rises majestically  Monte Stella with 1131m. Relaxing walks or trekking in untouched areas with unforgettable views. 


From Monte Gelbison 1.705m, also called the Sacred Mount,  from the Sanctuary's terrace the view on the surrounding mountains and of the coast is really exciting. Of course we have many more suggestions for you.
