Travel slowly, staying in vacation rentals (villas, farms, cottages, apartments)
Slow Travel Google Map: Italy, Cilento Coast
This pleasant restaurant has excellent food; we had the first "real" meal of our trip here. Located at the southern end of the Agropoli area.
La Chioccia d'Oro
Excellent restaurant at the entrance to a tiny town in the Cilento. No menu, at least at lunchtime; wonderful food in a delightful relaxed atmosphere.
Taverna del Pescatore
This very good seafood restaurant is in the pretty beach resort of Santa Maria di Castellabate, on viale Pepi, near the police station. After lunch, take a nice walk along the shore.
At Tenuta Vannulo, says everyone, the best mozzarella di bufala is made. Water buffalo are raised there, and from their milk comes the very best mozzarella, fresh ricotta and even yogurt. Get there before 11 if possible, much later and the day's production is likely sold out.
Casal Velino Memorial
A very beautiful and moving war memorial, dedicated to those "united in brotherhood by their deaths" is found in this very small village. Flags of many nations surround a plaque, statues, and the main park of the village.
Madonna di Novi Velia
This mountain sanctuary is at a height of 1704 meters, at the end of a winding, rock strewn road. (Don't attempt the climb is the weather is foggy!)
This museum houses artifacts from the Paestum archaeological site, and should best be visited before visiting the excavations.
This imposing archaeological site is comprised of three major public buildings (probably temples) of Greek origin and several private dwellings from the later Roman occupation. Please visit the very informative museum just across the road from the excavations.
Viticoltori De Conciliis
A visit to this small winery is a treat. De Conciliis produces several good reds from the aglianico grape, particularly the wonderful Naima. Note to the wise: This place is very hard to find; leave extra time to get lost.
Pretty fishing village with a nice long jetty. You can sit here and have a pizza, or a beer, or both, and watch the boats. The beach is also lovely.
Capo di Palinuro
Headland point looking out into the lovely Bay of Palinuro. This is a fishing port, and a tourist destination, but was very quiet in early May.
Tiny village where we spent a week at the magnificent Villa Trotta.
This little fishing village is off the path of any tourism, and has extraordinarily clear water. A beautiful place to sit and see.
