Backpacking in Agerola

 
 

Agerola is a Mediterranean mix of alluring countryside, green forests and delicious Italian cuisine. Far more beautiful than its simple name “field”, Agerola also has an important role in ancient history. The earliest Romans settled here, evident in the unearthing of coins from the first Cesari of Rome, and the Amphoras and Tombs at Lucerne.

Aside from its natural splendour, Agerola is filled with religious artifacts. The 16th century statue of the Madonna of Roses and a 15th century silver crucifix laid in the Church of Saint Peter the Apostle. Today religious festivals draw crowds, such as the Festival of the Fior di Latte and the procession of the Holy Week, which is carried out in the streets of Bomerrano and San Lazarro.

Within easy reach of the fantastic beaches along the Amalfi Coast, and the romantic retreats at Scala and Positano, there are several agerola youth hostels with panoramic views of the sea. Ostello Beata Solitudo sits perched in a hill over Agerola, and boasts friendly staff and management and a homely atmosphere. Nido Degli Dei is another hostel with amazing views, and elegantly furnished private rooms. Tuck into delicious local cuisine, with Naples and the Latarri Mountains as your backdrop. With buildings dating back to the early 1900s, Agriturismo Nonno Tobia is a historic rural retreat, with a restaurant serving fresh farm produce to tantalize your tastebuds.
