Arriving at Naples Airport (NAP), we provide two separate transfers to our hotel in San Severino, one at 10:45 in the morning and one in the evening at 20:15. The drive usually takes around 2.5 hours.
San Severino is a small village located in Cilento National Park at the foot of Monte Bulgheria. Still largely off the tourist radar Cilento NP is the second largest in Italy and its isolated location has left the beautiful countryside unspoilt and local traditions preserved. Over the next few days we will explore by bike the rugged coastline and pine-forested mountainous interior dotted with historic villages.
The hotel has an outdoor pool that is usually open from June to October but can vary depending on weather conditions each year. It is possible to arrange a vehicle to the beach of Palinuro through reception; cost varies according to number of passengers. Another option for free time this afternoon is to visit the village of San Severino - a 2 km walk or taxi ride from the hotel.
The hotel kitchen will have closed by the time the later transfer arrives, but they should be able to provide cold dishes or snacks if needed.
The Tour Leader will arrive in the evening and the introductory briefing to the whole group will happen on day 2 straight after breakfast at 08.00.
