Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni National ParkHolidays between mountain and sea

Cilento offers an incredible variety of landscapes: charming coasts and inland mountains - only within a few miles. There are endless possibilities for tourist entertainment: for those who want to relax (beaches and slow food), and those who want to be active (walking, hiking, horse riding, cycling). The major attraction of the "Parco Del Cilento and Vallo di Diano" is its beautiful coastline, nestled between bays and inlets, harbors, cliffs and flat, sandy beaches. The Cilento coast runs from Agropoli and Castellabate, Acciaroli and Pioppi, to Ascea, Pisciotta; the famous Palinuro and Marina di Camerota stand out for their exceptional beauty, their vast beaches and clear sea grottoes.

A few miles from the sea, the inland mountains offer spectacular landscapes, including forests, valleys and streams; the best known mountains are the Gelbison, the Cervati and Alburni. The Vallo di Diano provides both natural places of great impact (such as the grottoes of Pertosa) and cultural heritage (such as the Certosa di Padula). Paestum and Velia are some of the most important archaeological sites in the world.
