CILENTO--Where to base on a week-long trip....(?)

Jump to last reply

I've been doing some advance reading in preparation for a possible trip next year. I will have one week and will rent a car.

From the limited information I've found so far, it sounds as if the area might be best covered from at least two different bases: (Paestum or) Castellabate in the north (west) and Palinuro, Pisciotta, or CasalVelino further south (east). Is this true, or can I cover the coastal areas from one base?

There seem to be appealing lodgings in each of these areas. Our interests on this trip would be to take in glorious scenery, learn about, and devour, great local food, swim, and explore appealing small towns.

I would love to read about experiences in this region, along with hotel recommendations. I would also be interested in reading about Maratea, which is further south just over the regional Basilicata border.....worth trying to include?
