Agropoli hosts a fascinating ancient village that majestically dominates the town. Located on a promontory overlooking the sea, it offers a spectacular view of the Gulf of Salerno.

Agropoli is an ancient and charming seaside village, a popular tourist destination with a wide range of amenities for visitors. With a population of around 20,000, it is located at the southern end of the Gulf of Salerno, at the beginning of the Cilento coast. Its name comes from "akrópolis" (high city), as the first settlement developed on the promontory around the temple of Artemis, the goddess of the hunt according to the Greek colonists, at the time when nearby Paestum was also being founded.

Agropoli, a gem nestled on the Cilento coast, boasts a fascinating old town that majestically dominates the entire inhabited area. This ancient village, located on a promontory overlooking the sea, offers a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Salerno. The enchanting panorama offers intense emotions, with the sea stretching to the horizon and the mountains as a backdrop. The village is a place rich in history and charm, where the cobbled streets, stone houses, and flowered balconies create a unique and evocative atmosphere. Every corner hides secrets and treasures to discover, as you get lost among picturesque alleys and charming squares. Walking through the village streets, you breathe an air of authenticity and tradition, immersed in a timeless atmosphere. On the highest part of the town, on a hill, the majestic Agropoli Castle stands, which, despite the modifications made over the centuries by the Normans and the Sanseverino, retains its evocative historical atmosphere intact.

Agropoli is home to the prestigious Blue Flag of the beaches of Europe, a recognition for environmental protection, clean sea, and the quality of the tourist services offered. One of the village's treasures is the beach of Trentova, an unspoiled corner of the Cilento that invites you to enjoy the sea in a natural and evocative environment. Here you can swim in the crystal-clear waters, relax on the golden sand, and enjoy a unique peace and quiet. Agropoli is a place that fascinates and conquers visitors with its historical-cultural heritage, its unspoiled beaches, and the hospitality of its inhabitants. The combination of history, nature, and tradition makes this destination unique in the Cilento tourist landscape. A visit to Agropoli is an experience not to be missed for those who want to immerse themselves in the beauty and authenticity of this charming seaside town.
