Aquaduct or aqcuadotto is hidden in the downtown of Salerno. When first saw it eventhough we were looking for it, we just bumped into it during our walk in downtown. Looks funny with all the palmtrees around.

Salerno didn't wow me in general, but it has some nice gems hidden with it. This aqueduct is just an example of what gives this city a subtle exotic touch :)

We sought out the aquaduct as we were exploring Salerno. It is interesting in that it has a couple of branches, but there's not a lot left of it.

We were walking around the upper part of the old city enjoying the views and suddenly the Agueduct appear in the midst of a busy intersection. Wow! Ancient history at it's finest. There was also signage to tell about the history.
