Cilento National Park, located in the southern part of the Campania region, is a pristine and diverse natural paradise. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the park is characterized by its rugged coastline, dense forests, and ancient cultural heritage.

The park’s coastline stretches for over 100 kilometers, offering breathtaking views of cliffs, hidden coves, and crystal-clear waters. The coastal town of Palinuro is a popular starting point for boat excursions to explore the grottoes and sea caves along the shoreline.

Inland, the Cilento region is a hiker’s dream, with numerous trails leading through picturesque landscapes, ancient villages, and historic ruins. Monte Cervati, the highest peak in the region, provides stunning panoramas of the surrounding countryside.

Cilento is also rich in historical and archaeological sites, with well-preserved ancient Greek and Roman ruins scattered throughout the area. Paestum, mentioned earlier, is one of the most notable archaeological sites within the national park.

The park is also known for its traditional cuisine, which includes locally produced olive oil, cheeses, and cured meats. Be sure to sample the region’s renowned buffalo mozzarella and Cilento’s flavorful wines.
