Palinuro, pleasant resort on the Cilento coast, rich of hotels and extra facilities, took his name - following the legend - from Ulisse's steersman; it keeps evidence of the greek civilization in the necropolis and ruins of the castle and of the church of S.

At my opinion it's the most fascinating Villa of Frascati, unfortunately it is open to the public only some days of the year. ... (full story) (8 photos)
