Entrance was 2€ with the student discount. I then walked up the stairs and started walking along the battlements and into the several rooms. Most of the castle's rooms have no furtniture so it looks a bit in ruins but the walkways are new and...More
We took bus 19 up to the castle, paid €1.1 pp and bought return tickets from the Tabacchi as well as we didn’t know if there would be anything open up there. However, we didn’t use the return tickets as we saw a steepish path...More
We walked up to the castle on the road which was windy and probably a little dangerous ( in terms of walking on the road). It was also steep but it’s completely manageable in jeans and running shoes if you are relatively fit. The castle...More
What an amazing view of Salerno, the sea, and the surrounding area from this ancient Norman castle situated high above Salerno. Really a beautiful, well preserved castle and worth the effort of getting there.
My expectation was bigger than what I got from the Castello di Arechi. The Castle is not so big and you have to buy the ticket for the museum. If you don't want to pay for the tickets, you can walk around the Castle. And...More
We visited the castle while in Salerno and visited with Marco. While there, we toured the castle, took lots of pictures of the beautiful views Salerno. We were lucky enough to sample some of the food offered at the castle, which was absolutely amazing.
Best time, breath taking views! hidden Jem. Some of the reviews are less than favorable I guess that means I don't get out much:) I don't care we dad a great time! People from the Fly Over states. Highly recommended!!
Yes it's pretty, and the views are quite good (if you want views of Salerno and it's port) but that's about it. The museum artefacts are minimal and not worth much of your time. We were in and out within 1 hour and 4€ each...More
Decided to walk off some of the
Pizza we had eaten this week, and visit the castle by foot! I looked like a lobster when we arrived! It's a lovely climb once you get over the main road, through a pine forest which looked and...More
Oh, and call or email the TI in Salerno, they have the bus times. Also available at the bus station, right outside of the train station in Salerno. The bus schedule listed "R" and "A".... With R as "ritorno" or "return" and... More
Oh, and call or email the TI in Salerno, they have the bus times. Also available at the bus station, right outside of the train station in Salerno. The bus schedule listed "R" and "A".... With R as "ritorno" or "return" and A as "Andata" or "going". Because they list both times on the same schedule, it can be quite confusing to read. Also watch out for the legend (how to read the timetable) as it matters f it is a school day, Mon-Fri, Sat, or Sun.
That's a great question and unfortunately not one I can answer. The website says they are opened from 9-5 Tuesday through Sunday, but they were closed when we went. Best to ask when you are in Salerno. Even if it's... More
That's a great question and unfortunately not one I can answer. The website says they are opened from 9-5 Tuesday through Sunday, but they were closed when we went. Best to ask when you are in Salerno. Even if it's closed, the views are spectacular and you can walk around the outside.
Salerno as Base to Surroundings, with Young Children (7 Replies)
Hi, I am visiting Italy during the last two weeks of June with my wife and two children. By then, one would be 7 years and the other, 9 months. We're flying into Rome and are staying 10 nights. Am planning to do the first 4 and the last 2 nights in Rome. The middle leg of the trip (4 nights), we intend to visit the Amalfi region. I have some questions I need some advice on: 1. Based on what I have read, it seems that Salerno is a good base for us as it is on the main train line from...More

Eddie, thanks. Nice to know there are options to cut out multi-transfer commutes. I had a look at ischia on the net. Seems i need to consider spending two nights at least..
