Very nice, friendly, small city by the sea. I like the open and frankly mood of the people around, as well as the excellent pasta in all of its versions. Visit the castle and the downtown is a must. Having a walk on the sea side, have a rest in a bar facing Capri, makes this place unforgettable for me.

Starting with the breath-taking views of the roads built high up on the rocks, Salerno greeted me with a beautiful coastline and extremely hot weather in August. The beach looks nice, but you have to pay a few euros if you feel like sunbathing. It's about 10-12-minute walk to the centre from the harbour and on the way you may... More

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.

We loved the lights.. arrived early afternoon before the rush and wandered around the streets. They all looked lovely .. really enjoyed the park and the tunnel of lights and the night market along the sea front..

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
