Whilst we didn't sample the wineshop and bar,the owner, Kjetil was our guide on this mini tour and took us to the Buffalo farm and gave us a very comprehensive tour. The visit to the Museum and temples at Paestum was excellent and Kjetil gave us time to take both the museum and the park.
The lunch at the vineyard Polito was superb. A tour around the process by Enzo interpreted by Kjetil and then to have a splendid lunch sampling the wines and some liqueurs.
All in all a brilliant tour of which we all enjoyed and we had a 9 year old with us
Thank You

Santa Maria is Italy at its best. Here you have great scenery, great architecture and especially great food and wine. In Santa Maria, we visited Il Vichingo where we bought some wine. They had a great selection of local wines and we got good help and a little story about the different wines where they were made.
Il Vichingo also arranged two trips for us. A bicycle trip and a day to Capri. On the bicycle ride we stopped by a Mozzarella factory, ate lunch at a winery and visit Paestum, ruins of a 2,500 ancient Greek city. It was a day to remember. The trip to Capri was quieter, but also memorable. Narrow roads, great views, long taxis, yellow small buses, alleyways ... Capri is definitely a place to visit.

Thanks to Il Vichingo for a great trip.

I always shop at Il Vichingo when I am in Santa Maria di Castellabate. There is such a great selection of products, goods and wine! Alot is locally made and sourced..the passata being one of my favorite purchases! Staff is friendly, it is in a great central location in front of the main square and they also offer great day tours for travellers! My parents were over the moon with their tour to a vineyard and local mozarella factory!

We went to the bar and wineshop and we met very welcoming staff. We wanted to taste some of the local products and got a wine tasting and some local specialities to eat. While we chatted about all the different areas and what we could do,the staff told us they also organise excursions to see mozzarella fabric, Paestum the old temples and end the day with a wine tasting and lunch on a local wineyard.

We took the trip together with some friends and this is probably the best excursion we have made. To see how they make mozzarella and taste the freshly made ones, walk true the 2.400 year old temples and end up on this fantastic wineyard were we had the pleasure to be guided by the owner and sit at same table as the owners for lunch and wine tasting made this a great day.

Absolutely to reccomend, ask the staff for what to do in this area and book an excursion while your tasting the local products.

Some of our friends had a cooking school with the staff and in a local restaurant were they addapted wines for the lunch, they all came back with a smile so this is for us to do the next time
