Beach of Paestum - Capaccio

Nicknamed "the Gate of Cilento" - land of castles where traditions blend with pagan and Christian myths - Capaccio-Paestum lies in the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park.

Located on the sourthern coast of the Gulf of Salerno only 8 Km from the mouth of the river Sele, it offers unforgettable views from Paestum include the Gulf of Salerno from Punta Tresino to Punta Campanella along with Capri, the so-called "Sleeping Indian" thanks to its unmistakable profile, and Amalfi and Ravello as well.

Capaccio's fame is strictly bound to the imposing remains of Paestum, one of the most noteworthy European archeological sites; the earliest human occupation identified in the region dates back to the Lower Palaeolithic period.

The Valley of the Temples in Paestum - made by three outstanding temples lying on a very extensive area and surrounded by the archeological remains of the ancient village - can be seen from the main town street and visited 7 days a week.

Opposite to them there is the National Archeological Museum of Paestum, an extraordinary place of culture where a number of finds are carefully displayed and dated. At the rate of just € 7,00 per person you can visit the breathtaking temple and remains outdoor area and the whole Archeological Museum.

Such a cultural heritage plays a significant role also in the range of events performed in the magic surroundings of the Temples: in fact, the wide show calendar includes opera, dance, concerts and themed conferences.

Agriculture has always been the major activity of the local population; in fact, oil, wine and figs are produced according to very ancient traditions (the latter is carried out by means of natural drying procedures).

Flagship of Paestum - Capaccio is definitely also its magnificent dairy production: buffalo's mozzarella, fiordilatte, buffalo's ricotta cheese and cacioricotta cheese are real quality brands of Campania in the world.

In addition to the noteworthy cultural and historical significance of Paestum there is also its enchanting seaside: located within walking distance from the temples and the Archeological Museum, the shore of Paestum constantly attracts thousands of tourists thanks to its pinewoods surrounding many beaches and the high-quality bathing establishments.
