December 2008/January 2009 – Cilento, Venice


Cilento: Campania’s Undiscovered Gem
Cilento is a land of myth and legend, folklore and history … moonscapes and misty, forest-clad mountains that plunge down to the sea … long stretches of golden-sand beaches interspersed with cave-pockmarked cliffs and hidden coves … hilltop villages with narrow, cobbled alleys, family-run restaurants still using nonna’s recipes..

Where to Eat in Cilento
Cilento’s cuisine is based on fresh, seasonal ingredients and local tradition. Meat dominates inland, while seafood prevails on the coast.

Where to Stay in Cilento
There are accommodations of all kinds in this corner of Campania. We profile everything from an agriturismo to a beach resort to a former 17th-century hunting lodge used by the kings of Spain and Italy.
