Lisa warmly invites you to join her on her newest adventure to a hidden gem in Southern Italy.
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."

WE MEET IN BELLA NAPOLI, ITALY:
Those of you who choose to explore the 3000 year-old Adventure-land of Napoli (May 20-23, 2021) will meet the new arrivals on Sunday, May 23, 2021.
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.
Our itinerary 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 Forces landing 76 years ago, that includes their arrival on her property (where we will stay!) as they pushed further inland, under fire from the Germans posted in the Alburni Mountains.
From this base, we will enjoy excursions that include a GUIDED VISIT of PAESTUM’s magnificent Greek temples (2500 BC)- the oldest on the continent. To gain a clearer context we’ll start with an orientation in the park’s fascinating museum.
COOKING WITH LA BARONESSA: Cecilia is a fascinating and charismatic woman and gifted storyteller. A consummate host and avid collector, each room’s décor is unique, creating a collective cornucopia of visual delights.
And if that’s not enough, she is also an accomplished chef. Lisa is excited to offer a personal cooking lesson with Cecilia that will be held in her magnificent teaching kitchen.
