Who said that you go on holiday only in the summer? Autumn colors, the Christmas atmosphere of December and the events that are planned in 2018 – from Carnival to Easter – are a wedding invitation for real traveler who can find his or her ideal strategic landing point in Palinuro, at the Baia del Silenzio.
Anyone who loves to travel knows that every opportunity is good for getting to know new spectacular places, new people, and new flavors. Cilento fully responds to this identity. It is all too easy to imagine this land in the middle of summer, when it is kissed by the sun and bathed by a splendid sea.
Visits to Cilento Park and WWF Oasis
Try looking at these places from a different perspective. Let us take autumn as an example. What better than a hike in the Cilento National Park or in the WWF Cave of Bussento? The climate tends to be mild, the spectacle offered by the Mother Nature is unique.
Trekking in the woods during this period is something that cannot be described in words: yellow, reddish, green and brown hues create real masterpieces. And you are at the center of this work of art, ready to immortalize it. And then the waterfalls, the rivers. Well yes, here you can also go rafting or just birdwatching.
Autumn flavors: not only chestnuts
There are plenty of opportunities to recharge the batteries or, better, to fill up with energy with the Cilento’s delicacies. In Felitto, for example, the event “Autumn Flavors” is a special occasion to discover an interesting historical center as well as, of course, to taste the traditional Fusillo Felittese. The event, promoted by the Pro loco of Felitto, now in its 11th edition, is scheduled from Friday 3rd to Saturday 5th of November 2017.
But what is good at the table? Cavatelli with chestnut flour, the autumn version of Fusillo Felittese (with porcini mushrooms and sausage), sfrionzola, roasted chestnuts, local pizza, desserts, wine and other autumn delicacies. It will be possible to taste all these specialties also on Sundays lunch.
If instead you prefer to eat chestnuts till you can’t eat anymore, well… there is only to choose from. Several municipalities organize themed events.
In Sicignano degli Alburni – to see the castle – there is a festival around the middle of October. A Chestnut Festival is also organized in Stio Cilento (this year the appointment is from Sunday 29th October to Wednesday 1st November 2017) and in Buonabitacolo, from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th October 2017 (where among other things it will be possible to listen to ethnic music and traditional songs performed by local young people using instruments typical of Cilento).
The archaeological parks: Paestum, Athena Lucana, Elea-Velia
The food and wine events also dominate the scene in November, but if you have chosen to visit the Cilento in this period of the year, take advantage of it to make the full of culture in a land rich in history.
Free entrance in Archaeological Area of Paestum, to the Archaeological Museum of Athena Lucana, to the Archeological Park of Elea-Velia, at the National Archaeological Museum of Paestum.
Even the Immaculate Conception national holidays and the Christmas holidays offer a fair “excuse” for visiting these places. Christmas markets give a good reason to organize a trip for example in Castellabbate, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, or Camerota, Sapri, Atena Lucana, Castelnuovo Cilento or Casal Velino (only to name a few).
It’s the same old story: music, entertainment, crafts and gastronomic specialties. In Cilento you will also enjoy top-quality art cribs. You find them everywhere: in towns, in cities, in squares, and in churches.
The allegorical wagon parade of Agropoli
And for Carnival? Appointment at Agropoli: the association The Carro is already working to organize allegorical wagon parades for Sunday, February 11, 2018 and the Shrove Tuesday (February 13, 2018). But these days, other interesting events will also be organized, especially for the joy of children.
Possibility of having fun with the carnival events and the unforgettable parades of allegorical wagons in Palinuro and Marina di Camerota. Fun is guaranteed.
