Vallo della Lucania

Vallo della Lucania is the largest city near our home in Velina. It has a hospital and is a college town. This is a large mountain city without many steps. The center doesn’t allow cars but parking is easy and you can walk in. The central piazza is beautiful stone work but this last trip it was all ripped up and being replaced.

This is a great town to walk in. Some of its streets are very narrow and invite exploration.

As in any Italian town, there are street markets on some days. You have to walk around and find them.

This town is served by a limited access highway the SP430. This road leads south to Sapri and Maratea and north to Agropoli, Paestum and the Autostrada A3. Vallo della Lucania has shops that sell everything you need. Of course there are plenty of restaurants and bars to take an afternoon break at.

While we were enjoying our process, we saw a church letting out. It was First Communion day and all the boys and girls were in white. Parents were dressed up and heading to this bar to celebrate. If you stop to take in the city and people around you, you can experience wonderful things.

Tomorrow we are off to Castelabate and Santa Maria Castelabate.
