Make the best of the beach and the history going bak to the Greek Empire. The ruins are interesting and need to balance it with the coastal towns and the cuisine of the area especially the locally reared produce, simple but delicious.

We spent 5 nights in Salerno and used it as a base to visit Pompeii and Paestum as well as the local area. This is a great place to stay as a jump off place to visit the historical spots as well as a great city to just walk the waterfront promenade and the long pedestrian only shopping street, Corso...

My wife and her sister and myself, decided to take a private car tour of the Amalfi Coast. We planed on only one day, but our guide and driver made it so enjoyable we did a second day. Umberto Izzo our driver and guide, was very friendly and informed. He treated us like family. He picked us up on time,... More

Stopping at Salerno is a great choice if you want to explore the Amalfi Coast and Naples area. It is not as beautiful as other places along the coast, but it’s a bigger city, cheaper and less crowded. It is very well connected using public transport; you can get to Salerno with the high-speed trains from Rome, Florence and Milan.... More

Salerno is not so tourist friendly just yet. There needs to be more signage in other languages given that it is a hub for trains & ferries. We managed to work it out mostly by guesswork though. Trains to popular destinations such as Pompeii could be highlighted in other languages. The amount of litter around was disappointing, cigarette butts, bottles,... More

The place is beautiful, there is less tourists there and the people are... More

This is really a port city and never did much for me, but that is mainly due to my negative experience at The Grand Hotel. Some of the things I saw were okay, but nothing compared to Positano or Amalfi - for obvious reasons. Personally, I would not go here again but I'm sure it works for some people.

This city has so much to offer even though it is perhaps less well known. Beautiful old town area. Bars and restaurants around Piazza Gioia Flavio are a wonderful place to sit in summer evenings and watch Italian life going on. Also great array of shops. Great base to explore Amalfi coast by bus, train and especially beautiful ferry trips,... More

I had a wonderful time wondering around the old city and relaxing, really relaxing! The waterfront is a wonderful feature and the city a great jumping off point to visit the coast and Capri.
