Casual Velino has two parts:
- Casel Velino – the mountain city
- Casal Velino Marina – the beach town
Today we will look at the small mountain town. It’s in the province of Salerno, region of Campania. It is in the Client National Park. It has a population of only 5,000. Small roads lead up to this town. In the center is an old church a few bars and restaurants. Stairways lead up the mountain side almost hidden. They take you past the homes of Casel Velino. The people are friendly and the homes are very old.
In the center is a bar where you can eat outside with a million dollar view of the sea and beaches of Casel Velino Marina below. Have a coffee and sweet roll and then start your trek up the stairs. One of the areas most expensive restaurants is here, Locanda le Tre Sorrelle (three sisters). It is a restaurant and hotel with a beautiful pool.
The streets of Casel Velino:
View of beach below
Breakfast with a view
Driving very narrow streets
And some that can not be driven
A local fixer upper
Homes with gardens abound
Casal Velino is small and life is slow here. Come and enter this world, be part of it. Enjoy!
