the region

The Campania region
On the coast, tourist places like Palinuro, Marina di Camerota, Scario, Policastro and Maratea are renowned for the crystal clear blue sea water. Marina di Camerota and Palinuro is where Aeneas landed in classical times. There are a number of beaches, north and south along the coast. Most beaches are free of charge and directly accessible at many points by car. The climate is ideal: mild during the winter and of course, hot in summer, however the high altitude of the villa gives a wonderful break from the sometimes uncomfortable high temperatures. From Acquavena, it is well worth visiting the blue grottoes at Palinuro, the National Park of the Cilento, Pertosa, famous for its underground grottoes, the beautiful Certosa (Abbey) of Padula, and of course, the ruins the Greek Colony of Elea (Velia) and Paestum with its majestic temples.
The world famous Pompeii is certainly a day trip not to be missed and why not spend anothe day in Naples and visit the Royal Place and the wonderful Capodichino Museum. Nearer, why not visit San Giovanni a Piro with its monastery, Morigerati and Rocca Gloriosa and there spectacular waterfalls and castles, the old town of Policastro with its wonderful cathedral, the seaside towns of Villamare, Scario and the larger one Sapri. Further south, not to be missed, the picturesque village of Maratea, with its South American mystical style Statue of Christ perched on the mountain and Maratea’s characteristic harbour where yachts of all kinds can be admired. Further inland the beautiful medieval town of Teggiano is certainly not to be missed. Lastly, if you wish to relax by a lake , why not drive up to the beautiful Lake Laudemio where you can have a lovely typical lunch. Therefore not just nature, but history and culture as well!
