Itinerary

Day 1 Naples

Make your own way to Naples, where you can meet us for the scheduled group transfers to your hotel. ​Get to know your travelling companions over an included drink this evening.​​

Meals included: D

Day 2 Castellabate

​The Cilento Coast is one of Campania's most remote corners and is less well-known than its neighbour, the Amalfi Coast. With shimmering waters, secluded coves and inviting towns, the area lends itself perfectly to a vacation of long lazy days speckled with opportunities to discover more of the Italian culture. Swamped in history, the whole Cilento area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After breakfast this morning, we'll set out on an included excursion to the medieval town of Castellabate. Located high on a hill, we'll admire fantastic views across the countryside and out to sea, and enjoy a walk through the arches and passageways of the town centre.

The rest of the day has been left free for you to spend at your leisure. Perhaps enjoy a stroll with your travelling companions or relax at the hotel with its big swimming pool and private beach. 

Meals included: B,D

Day 3 Paestum

​We include a tour of Paestum, the Cilento Coast's most famous historic site today. Founded in the 7th century BC by the Greeks, it is home to three massive Doric temples - said to be the best-preserved Greek temples in the world. We will learn more about their fascinating history in the company of a Local Guide and visit Paestum's museum. Later we'll call at a nearby farm and sample some locally produced buffalo mozzarella. ​

Meals included: B,D
