Where is Cilento?

Cilento is a region in the southern Italian province of Campania. Pronunced "Chee-lento", it is a popular destination for Italian tourists in the summer months although to foreigners, it has remained one of Italy's best kept secrets. Only a few hours drive from Napoli, Rome or Bari airports (transport can be arranged), it has some of the best cycling, weather, food, countryside and hospitality in Europe. Best known for Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park, which has been a world heritage site since 1998, the unique and unspoilt landscape provides the perfect terrain for a cycling holiday.

Cycle Cilento is based in the largest town, Agropoli, a town on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea, with all modern amenities, but within cycling distance of the best that Cilento National Park has to offer.

We offer well-priced half board accommodation and guided cycling tours of the Cilento area catering for all levels of cyclist. You can ride along the stunning coastal cliffs through scenic tranquil fishing villages, or head east, upward through Cilento's challenging climbs which top out at 1,700m (5600ft) only 35km inland from the coast. The roads are quiet, the drivers respectful, the locals friendly, the climbs challenging and the scenery stunning. In short, it's a cyclist's paradise!

What we Offer

To bring you the best value, we have teamed up with Hotel Mare on the promenade in Agropoli. It overlooks the Amalfi coast and Capri, the famous island retreat of the rich and famous. Sunsets can be enjoyed from the outdoor pool. Rooms are comfortable and quiet and en-suite. We provide half board accommodation with abundant local food and drink.

Without doubt, the two most interesting terrains for cycling are hairpin mountain climbs and cliff-top coastline. Cilento has both of these in abundance. The pristine turquoise water of the Tyrrhenian Sea becomes even more beautiful as you climb higher and glimpse the panoramic views through the peaks of Cilento National Park. The varied landscape of Cilento is the perfect place for a cycling holiday.

Most of us eat 'Italian food' pretty regularly. But it's a poor imitation of the real thing. And Italian food doesn't get much better than what they create in the Cilento area, where the Mediterranean diet originated. We aim to provide you with the best of it to satisfy your raging appetite after a long day on the bike

The surrounding area is packed with local points of interest to see on your rest day, or for your partners to visit. Attractions include the ruins of Pompei, the city of Naples, the Paestum temples, tourist caves, boating, wine-tasting, archaeological sites, agritourism, trekking or simply lazing on one of the countless beaches that line the stunning Cilento Coast.
