The Cilentan Coast

Driving along the Cilento coast by car is a tiring undertaking, but it repays with beautiful views, visit to delicious countries and a stops in truly lovely places.

It’s about 140km of road almost always coastal; it’s comfortable even if, inevitably, it’s rich of bends and ups and downs.

The itinerary can start from Agropoli, the small town that opens to Cilento, with its small port, its beaches and its old town.

We continue for a stretch inside, to come out close to Santa Maria di Castellabate, with other wonderful and large beaches, made famous, such as the village at the top of Castellabate, by the film “Benvenuti al sud”, a very special welcome.

The road goes on through beautiful and wild landscapes, with the typical vegetation of the Mediterranean maquis, olive trees and rocks that are reflected in one of the most

beautiful and clean seas in Italy. We go through fishing villages that today have become , thanks to the tourism, rich in tourist offer, but they haven’t lost their authenticity: San Marco, Agnone, Acciaroli, to get to Marina di Ascea, where is mandatory to visit the excavations of Velia, the ancient greek city of Elea, home of the prestigious school of philosophy of Parmenide.

La pesca e i prodotti del mare

We continue through curves and bends with a sea view to reach Marina di Pisciotta, where we fish the anchovies of Menaica, an absolute speciality, slow food presidium.

Then, we get to Palinuro, the place where it was founded a “Mediterranée Club”, which was the first to discover these places in the 60s of the 20th century. It’s the destination of a quality tourism, the most prestigious place on the coast.

We still see panoramas we never get tired of, and then we arrive to  Marina di Camerota, with its spectacular beaches, also here titled by the blue flag; at the and we arrive to Sapri, the end of the Cilentan coast and of the province of Salerno.

A nice little town, made cozy by the tourism and it’s also the home to the landing of the three-hundred of Carlo Pisacane. Do not look for gleaners (do you remember the poetry? “They were three-hundred, they were young and strong, and they’re died!”) because here there is no grain and nothing to glean from.

But taste figs, fresh in season, dried all year long, and buy the oil, one of the best in Italy.
