Cilento, the land that enchanted Ulysses.
Cilento is a sub-region of Campania and the largest national park in Italy. In this land, where time moves more slowly, nature remains vibrantly green 365 days a year. This is the land that gave birth to the philosopher Parmenides and inspired poets—even Catone talks about Cilento in his stories. Here you will find the ruins of Velia, an iconic Magna Grecian town at the time of Elea. The Romans chose this land because of the pleasant weather and its numerous sources of thermal springs. In fact, the coastal area between Ascea and Palinuro offers a specific micro-climate of mild temperatures all year round. Cilento truly has enough amazing attractions to fill a lifetime!
To enjoy the best of Cilento, Pa-Cycling has designed a bikepacking journey through this spectacular region, cycling between the mountains and the sea to reveal the most magical, uncontaminated, wild, and authentic riding experience the territory can possibly offer—It’s a journey sure to captivate any rider. Physically challenging, but with an overwhelming beauty that promises your eyes will tire long before your legs do, the hardest part will be not stopping every kilometer to spoil yourself with the wonderful beauty of Cilento.
Our Italian bikepacking tour starts from Agropoli, the northern gate of Cilento. It’s a city of ancient origins and one shaped by a succession of different civilizations, from the Greeks to the Romans and Saracens. Here is where our journey truly begins—in the land of the sirens. The going won’t be easy, with considerable climbing every day given the mountainous nature of Cilento, but the effort will be strongly rewarded by the beauty earned through every pedal stroke. Cycling from the coast, we’ll move inland, enjoying climbs in the Campanian countryside before our trip culminates on the highest peak in the region: Monte Cervati. Over six days, you will have the opportunity to truly take in this enchanting land as well as its charming villages where time stands still.
