Cilento is a region of Campania composed of rugged coastline overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea and the largest national park in Italy that spans from the coast to interior mountains. We’ve held two tours in this area before and we’ve been itching to get back to explore it more. Thanks to the abundant national park system the terrain has been preserved from overdevelopment and provides a rich and varied mediterranean-to-mountain culture to explore.
Book this tour
We will pass the week cycling along the coastal hills of Cilento.
Expect spectacular vistas, quiet roads, plenty of cycling, and abundance at the table!
Cyclists who love to travel and get off the beaten path. The terrain ranges from hilly to mountainous, and the views will transition from the forests to breathtaking coast line.
Be fit but not in a hurry, there are so many natural and historic sights to see here that we will let the days come to us rather than hurry along.
This tour is not well suited for non-riders because of the twisting nature of the roads on our transfer days. However, we consider the sights and experiences on this trip to be extraordinary, so write us if you are interested and we will discuss if this tour would suit you.
Our tour will be split between the coastal villages of Santa Maria di Castellabate and Marina di Camerota. Our routes will explore the great Parco Nazionale del Cilento of Campania with the lure of the sparkling sea always in the distance. Some of Italy’s greatest early Greek ruins can be found in Cilento, and we will take the time to weave them into our rides.
This tour will begin with transportation from Naples on Saturday, June 11th from a central location (TBD) to our starting point of Santa Maria di Castellabate.
We will end the tour with transportation to Naples on Saturday, June 18th. Hotel accommodation is included on the 18th. Flights should be scheduled home on the 19th or after.
There is an optional two day add-on at the end of this tour to explore Naples with a local guide. If you are interested please let us know. If you take part in the extension your flights home should be scheduled on the 21st or after.
