"Persano WWF area" Salerno Off The Beaten Path Tip by gmg61
Salerno Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 5 photos
River Sele is one of the longest in Southern Italy. In the medium part of its stream a dam created a small lake once used to provide water for the nearby farnmers. This wet area has been populated by thousands of birds of 150 different species and is now a protected area under the surveillance of the World Wildlife Fund.
You can spend some happy hours there surrounded by a beautoful landscape and watch rare birds from the "watching huts" built on thhe shore of the lake. At the moment 4 of them are fully open to the public, and in my opinion the best ones are # 3 and 4.
At the entrance you find the visitors centre with info about the natural habitat and you can also book a guided tour. A bar abd a restaurant are nearby.
The entrance fee is ? 5 (2008).
To go there follow the A3 direction South,exit at Campagna,turn left and follow the road for 2,5 km, then turn left again on the SS19 and drive for about 5 km turn left again and after 1 km you are there. Road signs are clearly visible. The area is 35 km from Salerno
