This was fun to explore. Don't miss the Giardino Della Minerva, lower down along the ancient city wall!

Castellabate is one of the best-kept secrets in the south of Italy. Situated on a mountaintop overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, one hour south of Salerno. There are surprisingly few tourists, even in summer. There are fantastic views from different piazzettas, and a few good restaurants. A must see before it is discovered by mass tourism.

I saw this from below and wasn't impressed, but really enjoyed actually touring the place. Small village with many stairs and alleys.

Someone recommended this place to us. It is very characteristic and has become quite famous with the Italians for the film "Benvenuti as Sud". In fact we had a drink in the square where most of it was filmed. Lovely little shops dotted around the old part. Going down towards the main town there are lovely sea views.

Castellabate is a small town perched at the top of a mountain that overlooks Santa Maria & the Tyrranian Sea. The views from the castle are just magnificent and the actual town is picturesque with its narrow streets & beautiful gardens in tiny locations. The drive up to the castle along a narrow winding, switchback road is breathtaking. A not... More

It had been my fortune to spend two whole summers in San Marco Castellabate more than a score of years ago. We twice did exchanges with a doctor's family (primarily from Naples) who stayed in our Westchester, New York home. My sons were quite young but learned to enjoy the adventure of shopping occasional mornings for milk and bread, playing... More

This is a nice place to visit in Salerno, quite south of Salerno. If you are a sea person, you can visit it. Of course, it may not be as amazing as Amalfi Coast but of coast it has its beauty. As it is low season, I took a cab as there was not much tour and i din drive.... More
