Cilento

Italy

Located in Italy's Campania region, old Cilento lies between Paestum and the Gulf of Policastro, near the town of Sapri. Travel here to see the magnificent Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park host the archaeological sites of Paestum and Velia, and the Certosa of Padul — culture hubs all on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The real draw of Mediterranean Cilento, however, is its serenity, characterized by gently rolling hills and olive trees standing in bright contrast to the vibrant blue of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Here, thick woods of chestnuts and verdant evergreens skirt villages as they cling to Cilento's high, rough rocks, lining its glittering coasts.

Il Cannito


A tiny redoubt of stripped, twisted beams, limestone walls and a modern interior. There’s an air of chilled lux to this aged – and much loved – restored monastery, which perches on a verdant hillside overlooking the temples.
