Felitto is a small town with big attractions, in the mountains of the Cilento. It sits above the Calore River, which offers outdoors opportunities, along with the Gole del Calore, a canyon-like river gorge. There are medieval bridges and paths to enjoy, along with river sports like canoeing and kayaking. The centro storico is charming, and there are restaurants where you can sample the town's famous pasta, called fusilli di Felitto. You can enjoy horseback riding in the mountains and canyons, too.
Felitto has a museum dedicated to the bygone rural culture, the Museo della Civilta' Contadina, along with an art gallery of local artists' works, the Pinacoteca. If you want a break from the river and trekking, there is a nice community swimming pool for summer fun. And Felitto offers many festas throughout the year. The patron saint is San Vito and festivities in his honor take place June 15. They also celebrate the Madonna di Costantinopoli on the second Sunday of September. The festival dedicated to the home-made fusilli pasta is in July, while an autumnal festival celebrates the woodland goodies like chestnuts and mushrooms (along with pasta, of course!) in October.
