Paestum and the Cilento Coast Short Break

From £575.00
5 Days & 4 Nights

Paestum and the Cilento Coast Short Break

  • The world-famous ancient Doric temples at Paestum
  • Step into Greek mythology and the Odyssey by walking the Path of the Sirens
  • Sample creamy, freshly made water buffalo mozzarella at a local organic farm
  • Swim in the clear, azure waters and rest on the sandy beaches of this unspoilt coastline
  • Soak up the atmosphere in Agropolis Old Town and taste the refreshing gelato
  • Characterful hotels that are ideally located for exploring on foot at a gentle pace
If you’ve visited Amalfi already or you’re looking for somewhere a bit quieter, but with the same great food, wine, and weather, then this short break is for you. The Cilento region is steeped in ancient history, legends, and is home to Paestum – where you’ll find one of the most impressive and famous ancient archaeological sites in the world. Cilento also has an abundance of natural beauty, with a pristine marine reserve and the second largest national park in Italy falling within its borders. And yet, this region is a secret haven and considerably quieter than neighbouring Amalfi. On this slow-paced walking trip, you can wander down narrow medieval streets and relax with the locals for a coffee in a quiet town square. Experience authentic fishing villages and stroll along sandy beaches; stopping to bask in the sunshine or take a refreshing dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea.
