Enogastronomy Tours in Italy

Salerno and its surrounding



For centuries the Sele Plateau has been dedicated to the breeding of buffalo – (present there probably since the Longobards) – from whose milk excellent mozzarella is produced.

The curiosity of travellers and tourists and their desire to try this local speciality results in awe and the demand at home to import the product far exceeds the limited quantity available for exportation.

This naturally guarantees the quality of the product which since 1993, has obtained the DOC quality label.



In the Sele Plateau the renowned Paestum Artichoke (IGP) (Geograpically Protected and Identified), is grown. This artichoke is characterised by its large size and its tightly layered small external leaves which are blue-red in colour. It is particularly tender when cooked.



Renowned in the world is the San Marzano tomato, which flourishes in the Agro-Nocerina-Sarnese Area.

It is a product of excellent quality and has been awarded the DOP label (Denomination of Protected Origin). The quality of the product, its taste, shape and beauty make it unique. Pasta and pizzas flavoured with San Marzano tomatoes or sauce made from this product are the glory of any table.

Excellent as dried fruit for dessert and in the production of confectionery such as cakes, ‘croccante’, and chocolate etc., it finds pride of place in the preparation of cakes and fresh ice-cream of fines quality.
