Cilento is one of the most beautiful territories in Campania, in the province of Salerno, and includes numerous tourist localities. A great part of Cilento is included in the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, with the archeological sites of Paestum, Velia and the Certosa di Padula, established to protect its rich natural patrimony (including the primerose of Palinuro, symbol of the park). Together with Vallo di Diano and the western Lucania, Cilento was recognized as Unesco's world heritage.
Cilento has inspired poets and singers for a millennium; many greek and roman myths took place on its coasts. The most famous myth, described by Omero in the Odyssey, is the one about the mermaids that drove the sailors crazy with their singing and lived on the island in front of Punta Licosa.SEE THE MAP
