Salerno

Overview

Nature and history nestled between the sea and the mountains

Overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, the province of Salerno boasts some of the most popular and visited tourist destinations in Italy. The historical centre of the capital, restored after the damage caused by the 1980 earthquake, preserves its original medieval structure intact, the best example of which is the Cathedral, built by the Norman prince Robert Guiscard.

Stop, too, at the Church of the Annunziata with its beautiful Baroque bell tower, the Arechi Castle, the Church of S. Pietro a Corte and Piazza Flavio Gioia, known as the Rotonda because of its characteristic shape on which the 18th-century Porta Nuova opens. There is no shortage of green spaces in the city, such as the Mercatello park, the Pinocchio park for children and the Minerva Gardens.

The Salerno coast is dotted with unmissable villages. Amalfi, Positano, Maiori and Minori, Vietri sul Mare are just some of the towns where you can enjoy clear sea, breathtaking views and culinary delights. A compulsory stop at the archaeological area of Paestum to discover the majestic Greek temples, perfectly preserved.

Trekking and nature lovers cannot fail to be enchanted by the Path of the Gods a scenic route from Agerola to Positano, and the natural beauty of the Cilento National Park.
