The "Cammino di San Nilo" in the heart of the Italian-Greek Cilento is an itinerary of about 110 km, divided into 8 stages. It starts from the municipality of Sapri and winds through the Lower Cilento up to Palinuro, in the municipality of Centola, crossing 14 attractive villages immersed in the nature of the Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni National Park.
