Cilento is an undiscovered gem, with white sandy beaches stretched out between hidden caves. Spend your first full day soaking up the sun on the tranquil Blue Flag beach of Palinuro, or for those who prefer to explore, a boat tour of the Blue Grotto karst cave is a must. Be sure to visit on a day with plenty of sunshine to catch the grotto’s turquoise waters looking their best.

Map of Day 4 - 6: Cilento

Many of the towns in Cilento have medieval heritage worth exploring. We recommend a visit to Paestum, once one of Italy’s biggest Ancient Greek cities, now home to three preserved temples. The temples date back as 600 BC, and the site's national museum will help you discover the rich history of Paestum.

Between Cilento's towns are unspoilt national parks, with majestic mountains and coasts perfect for walks. There are walking trails to suit all abilities, with hilly terrain for the most adventurous providing stunning views of the beaches below.

Make the most of the warm evenings and watch the world go by in one of the many traditional restaurants Cilento has to offer.

Day 7: Cilento - Puglia

Points of Interest

Map of Day 7: Cilento - Puglia

Today, you'll be leaving Cilento to make the journey east across Italy, heading into Puglia (approx. 3 hours) before checking into your next hotel. Many believe Ostuni is the prettiest town in Puglia - today you can see for yourself. Home to whitewashed buildings and stone churches, Ostuni has earned itself the name ‘White City’. Family restaurants are in abundance in Ostuni; we highly recommend Osteria del Tempo Perso if you want to dine on the region’s famous produce. If you have more time, try one of the cookery courses they have on offer to experience authentic Italian style cooking for yourself.

Day 8 – 10: Puglia

Please call one of our Italy experts to discuss your accommodation choices

Having a hire car lets you easily discover local treasures. Head to Alberobello to see a town like no other - filled with traditional 'trulli' stone huts with thatched conical roofs, Alberobello is perfect for  exploring on foot. Selected trullis have even been converted into shops, so pick up a unique souvenir to return home with.

Another highlight in the area is the city of Lecce. This charming baroque city is packed with attractions, ranging from the prominent fortress to quaint cafes and bars. There are even some white sandy beaches nearby, perfect for cooling off on a warm day. 

Day 11: Puglia - UK
