If I tell you spa treatments, fine wines, bike routes, rafting and local food you have an uncontrollable desire to leave and travel? Then follow me to discover the beauties of the Taburno Camposauro Regional Park, in the province of Benevento in Campania.
Taburno Camposauro Regional Park is a lesser-known place of the Campania Region (South Italy), so different from the most visited places of Sorrento and Amalfi Coast. It’s also a authentic part of Campania, where you keep intact magnificent small villages and unspoiled nature.
Far from the tourist clichés of Italy, here you can live as a local, staying in an organic farmhouse and tasting amazing local products accompanied by a glass of Aglianico, the local wine.
The natural park of the Taburnus welcomes you more as a traveler not as a tourist: you can talk with local people, visit the traditional festivals (such as the Carnival of the Months) and walk in the pristine nature of the park.
