“Surpassed all of our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The historic center surpassed all of our expectations: bigger, older, nicer, cheaper and cleaner then we would have expected. Winding cobllestone streets, old frescoes of the Virgin on many walls, an 11th century cathedral (amongst other churches), great buzzling nightlife, relaxed atmosphere... Especially after seeing Naples, you would think things get only dirtier when you go more to the south,but no... Also, very few foreign tourists compared to Amalfi or Naples, so no tourist traps. We felt absolutely safe there, I did not see any pickpockets and hardly any beggars.

“Be carefull, because it will steal your hart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The old centre of Salerno is among the nicest ones around. Everyone knows the region because of Amalfi and other places. but I think the centro storico di salerno is much nicer. Especially in the evening.

“The best part of Salerno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Wander around and get lost. Great photo opportunities. It looks like all of those photos that you see in guidebooks; washing on the lines above your head, little steps leading to little front doors, etc
