Italy: most Unesco sites

Unesco World Heritage Sites in Italy
The Cilento 

Italy is the country that can boast the most UNESCO recognitions in the world, counting 49 in total.
In no other nation can one find such a high concentration of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


What is your favorite one?

Our Amalfi coast expert shared this with me this week.
I asked him to tell us about the sites closest to the Amalfi coast.  He sent me a list of sites that could be  "a days trip distance": the Amalfi Coast, Pompei ruins, Cilento National Park, Naples historical center and the Royal Palace of Caserta.

Each location has enticing features that a traveler should explore.   You may not be as familiar with the Cilento National Park nor the Royal Palace of  Caserta.   I have visited all these sites except The Cilento…..since you must have a car to explore it properly.
Andrea:  “let's say you can get to Santa Maria by public transport and Acciaroli (train from Naples or Salerno to Agropoli then bus to those the villages.   However that bus service is not reliable. Moreover, other villages of Cilento such as Palinuro and Marina di Camerota, where you can find the best sandy beaches of Campania, are not accessible by public transport.
Also, for many of the  other villages in the countryside, there is no public transport (actually there is a sort of bus connection but it is VERY difficult to use).    By bus it is a challenge to move around in the Cilento. That is the reason why it is not touristy and only Italians get there with their own car.

German and UK. American or Aussie guests visiting  our Cilento (rental) properties for the first time, well, every time they go into raptures at the beauty of that place.
Definitely, if you want to feel the real Italian way of Life Cilento is your deal, compared to Amalfi Coast,  you will need a car to enjoy  all the wonders of the area.”
