Come explore the ancient and pristine, uncontaminated lands, salt and fresh waters of southern-most Campania


CILENTO is located in southern Campania. It is a “sub-region” that is blessed with  pristine waters and rugged lands that stretch from the ancient Greek temples of Paestum (2500 BC) down to the border with Calabria. 


ZONA BLU: Cilento is a "Blue Zone", which means that it a demographic region where people commonly live active lives past the age of 100 years. 

 

CILENTO has a rich history of Greek Philosophy (the fifth phase) and culinary, fishing and agricultural traditions that gave us the infamous "Mediterranean Diet" (Ancel Keyes-- who moved and lived out his life in Cilento) that revolutionized how we thought no about our what we eat.


CILENTO boasts a large number of award-winning beaches (la prestigious Bandiera Blu- the Blue Flag, is an award given only to the most pure and clean uncontaminated waters.
 

LITERARY LEGEND:  Legend has it, that Ernest Hemingway couldn't  leave this place and while living here, met an old fisherman Antonio Massarone who inspired Mr H. to write his classic "Old Man and the Sea."

OVERVIEW OF OUR CILENTO ITINERARY

WE MEET IN BELLA NAPOLI, ITALY: 


Those of you who choose to explore the 3000 year-old Adventure-land of Napoli (May 21-24, 2020) will meet the new arrivals on Sunday May 24, 2020. 


The whole STWL Gang will meet up in Napoli on Sunday, May 24th at the Napoli Train Station (Napoli Centrale) at approximately 12:30 pm. 


From there, our comfortable minibus will whisk us away to the region of Cilento to first visit the inspirational and awesome home of ancient Greeks: Poseidonia, now called Paestum.


TWO NIGHTS in PAESTUM

THIS ITINERARY GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF THE ADVENTURES IN STORE FOR YOU.  

Please note that it is subject to change as Lisa crafts each of her itineraries with passion and STWL invites you to check in from time to time for updates to the itinerary.


We'll spend two nights on an authentic agriturismo/buffalo farm, owned my dear friend the Baronessa Cecilia.

 

For you history buffs, Cecilia's estate gives us great insight into the "mezzadria" system of farming in which an important owner (padrone) had numerous families (mezzadri) who worked the lands, lived on the property, and formed a community that included a school and a church. 


A PLACE IN HISTORY. This agriturismo is particularly significant to WW II history in that the Allied Forces claimed as their headquarters for three years


Cecilia will  show us actual footage of the Allied landing 76 years ago, that includes  shots of her property (where we will stay!) as the Allied moved further  inland.


From this base, we will enjoy a guided visit the magnificent Greek temples (2500 BC) and fascinating museum in Paestum.  


COOKING WITH THE BARONESSA:  Cecilia is a fascinating woman and an avid collector so the interiors of our accommodations are a cornucopia of visual delights; each room is very different from the next. She is also an accomplished chef and I have organized a personal cooking lesson with her, to be held in her magnificent teaching kitchen.
