This was a train stop for my mom and I and we decided to explore - we are glad that we did. All of Amalfi Coast is beautiful and serene and Salerno was a cool industrialized touch to it all. I would recommend Salerno and Amalfi Coast far before all the big cities of Italy if you are looking for... More

Salerno is changing and for the better in my opinion. It still maintains its normal bustling centre, but the graffiti and general grime have gone and this has given thd place a less oppressive feel. Not that it was ever really unsafe. The area at the top of the waterfront is still under construction but promises to only further enhance... More

This is a nice little town that should definitely be included on a tour of the Amalfi Coast. It is convenient to Naples and Pompeii and is the perfect place to while away an afternoon with a leisurely stroll. Beautiful scenery, great shops and plentiful restaurants in a gorgeous setting -- what more could you ask for?

I was really impressed with Salerno, Italy. I had been looking forward to seeing it because of its historical importance in World War II, but I found it to be so much more! If one is planning a trip to the Amalfi, Sorrento, Capri area, it would not be a waste of your time to plan an extra day or... More

Salerno is a lovely town right near the two of the best known attractions in Campania, Italy: the AMalfi coast and Paestum. Naples and the archaeological sites of Herculaneum in Pompeii are also a short train ride away. There are a lot of nice restaurants in the town. It's a nice, under-rated town worth a short visit.

Been there in November. Definitely a good place for the start of the Amalfi coast drive. Nice especially during the night from November because of all of the lights.

Salerno is so underrated! It's closer to Amalfi and there are regular regional trains to Naples which can connect you to Pompeii and Ecrolano (another underrated archeological site!) There are also regular regional train connections to Paestum. These are covered by the cost effective Unico Campanie ArteCard (3 day tutta le regione) I was in Sorrento for 4 days and... More

Couldn't find accommodation in Amalfi or Sorrento so stayed here and we were VERY pleased we did. Salerno is a lovely town, relaxed, not too many tourists. We felt at home rather than tourists. The old town is fantastic with lots of winding streets to lose yourself in. Easy bus or ferry to Amalfi coast and as you get on... More
