By Car

Route from Munich
Distance: 1250 km
Driving time: approx 12 h plus pauses

• Brenner motorway-Verona-Modena-Bologna-Firenze-Roma-Napoli – ca. 20 km before Napoli at Caserta South take the Salerno-Reggio Calabria motorway
• pass Salerno keeping in the direction Reggio Calabria
• at Battipaglia exit the motorway
• stay on the main road keeping in the direction Agropoli / Vallo della Lucania / Sapri until the exit Omignano (warning those using navigation systems: the device often shows a route via Perito, which is one exit earlier and wrong)
• in Omignano turn left in the direction Gioi, after the petrol station and before Pasticceria Malibeo (from here it is a small country road)
• in Casino Lebano keep to the right in the direction Gioi – after about 4 km turn right at the bridge direction Gioi (from here serpentine road up the hill, for about 2 km). Attention, we are on the right half way below Gioi

Tip: Leave Saturday afternoon from Munich and travel as far as Verona or one exit further on. There have a relaxing dinner and overnight stay dinner. Sunday after breakfast continue the longer part of the journey: on Sunday there are no trucks on the road!
