Enjoy Italy the way it was meant to be seen — unhurried and quietly, taking in the sights, sounds, and of course, incredible flavours that surround you. On vacations to Agropoli, you can do just that. In this small town there are still flowers at the windows, stone arches connecting well-worn pathways, and no more than a handful of people at the beach.
As you stroll through Agropoli's quiet streets, you will find it hard to believe that this town's tumultuous history includes numerous attacks by the Greeks, Northern Africans, and Turks, to name just a few. From its steep cliffs to its beaches skirting the Tyrrhenian Sea, Agropoli holds old stone homes which are still lived in, the imposing Angevin-Aragonese castle, ruins of a medieval monastery, and the ancient gateway to the city which has been welcoming friends and foes alike since the 7th century.
Rather than being touristy, Agropoli vacations will take you to small-town Italy with all its rustic charms. Neighbourhood cafes serving cheap meals, tiny restaurants advertising delicious daily specials, and friendly locals who are happy to chat — these are what you will find here. To catch the best views of all, head down to the scenic bay where calm waters lap the near-empty shoreline leaving you with picture-perfect memories for a long time to come.
