Impressive location in the northern Cilento: Holiday homes, holiday apartments & hotels at Agropoli

Agropoli, the „high town“ - thus called by the Byzantines, who built a fortification there around 500 AD. Its location on the steeply dropping headland offered excellent protection against raids. Evidence of the fact that the town was even in the hands of the Saracens for some time is given today by the minaret-form of some of the houses’ chimneys.

Old Town with picturesque alleys

It is through the 17th century town gate „Porta Aragonese“ that you enter the charming Old Town of Agropoli with its appealing, picturesque small alleys. The coat of arms of the noble Sanfelice family, once masters of the town, adorns this striking gate with five pinnacles.

Below Porta Aragonese lies Piazza Vittorio Veneto, designed in the 19th century and lined by lovely cafés and bars. Following the winding roads up to the highest point of the medieval town, you pass rustic trattorias and, at the end of your walk, you are rewarded with a terrific panorama.  

At the highest point you have then also reached medieval, 15th century Castello Angioino Aragonese, which was built on the remains of a heathen temple. Nowadays, the castle is a popular location for concerts, theater performances and markets, especially during the summer months. Those who love culture should stop by Palazzo Civico delle Arti, where temporary art exhibitions have been taking place since 2011 and which houses a collection of archaeological finds from Hellenic times.

From the harbor at the foot of the Old Town, a footpath runs along the coastal road to bathing bay „Baia di Trentova“. With its white sandy beach it is considered Agropoli’s most beautiful bay and is therefore much frequented during the summer months. On clear days, you even enjoy a marvelous view of Capri, Ischia and the Amalfi Coast from there.

From Baia di Trentova, a nicely laid-out hiking trail leads to Punta Tresino. The coastal nature reserve stretches as far as Santa Maria di Castellabate. At Punta Tresino, a small headland, there are, once more, incomparable panoramas towards the north and the south to enjoy. 

A hinterland steeped in legend

An excursion into the hinterland, towards Trentinara and Giungano, does have its charms, especially in summer. Gole di Tremonti, for example, waits to be discovered by hikers. According to legend, it was in the gorge that rebellious Spartacus met his death. At the mountain villages, you can take part in charming village festivals, e.g. Festa della Pana and Festa dell’antica Pizza cilentana. 

By boat to the Amalfi Coast

When spending your holidays at Agropoli, you get to enjoy a wonderful mix of nature and culture. The town's excellent infrastructure is another aspect not to be neglected. As there are boat connections between Agropoli and Amalfi, a day trip to the "Divine Coast" could or should be part of your 'holiday program'. From mid June to mid September, boats of the Travelmar company lie waiting for you at the harbor of Agropoli. In June and September, they head for Amalfi only at the weekends; in July and August, they head for the Amalfi Coast every day. For more information, look up our Travel information
