All the Cilento Pictures on this and our Cilento photos pages were taken at or within 25 minutes of the Zizzania e il Mandarino, our preferred accommodation choice in this area .
If you are in need of a holiday that is well away from the crowds and to discover a part of Italy that is virtually unchanged by tourism then this part of the Cilento is hard to beat.
This is a region that offers everything you could possibly wish for, and more, including majestic mountains, azure seas with spectacular beaches, ancient fishing towns and medieval hill-top villages.
Of course the food is exceptional too and the locals are some of the friendliest people in all of Italy. It always seems to me that the locals have not become jaded and tired of tourists which is so often the case in many of the major tourist spots.
Paris is a good example where I never fail to get treated like an unwelcome and unfashionable slug. I can promise you that this will never happen in the Cilento, warmth and hospitality comes naturally to these folk and you will always feel welcome and it doesn't matter to them at all where you are from.
They particularly seem to offer a warmer than usual welcome if you are from the UK or USA which I have to say is pretty unusual in Europe but lovely to see. If you stay at Zizzania e il Mandarino, which I recommended above, you will end up feeling you have been adopted.
