    The apartment is in a historical building, Castel Terracena, the former Norman residential Palace of Salerno, dating to the end of the 11th century. It was erected by Robert the Guiscard, Norman adventurer who conquered Southern Italy, after having defeated the last Longobard prince of Salerno. Castel Terracena is the original name of the building, of which two towers are still discernible among the later structures added on to its original planning. The two towers are linked by the balcony of apartment, where three original mullioned window of the late 11th century are still to be admired.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What a great place to stay. The apartment was just as we were hoping it was. So different to staying in hotels and so nice to have tat homely feel. Very clean well furnished with everything you need and the great terrace where we spent most of our time when in the apartment. Gabriella and Francesca were so lovely and helpful and we were so surprised and grateful for the food and wine left for us. We loved Salerno especially the medieval are and was such a good place to base ourselves for our day trips to various towns on the Amalfi coast, Capri, Paestum and Pompeii. Great apartment and great town. more

This was exactly how it was described. A wonderfull apartment set in an old castle with old buildings, two museums around it. There is a local market every day, where you can buy fresh veg and fruit. Salerno is a maze of small shops, fabulous restaurants and beautiful veiws. Its a perfect place to visit the sites such as Paestum, Pompeii. The apartment was well equipped with every thing you need. Cool evenings sat on the veranda with a glass or two of Spumate, lovely and relaxing. Many thanks to Gabriella for providing us with food and drink for the first night, we needed it so much. A fabulous apartment. more
