Salerno

While often overshadowed by the Amalfi Coast's array of quaint villages, Salerno has become one of the region's main areas for culture and entertainment, while remaining relatively unmarked by tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Salerno: Paestum Ruins (in Paestum), Spiaggia di castiglione (in Castiglione) and Ravello (Ceramiche Cosmolena di Margherita di Palma & Cappella Sant'Angelo all'Ospedale). And it doesn't end there: get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, head outdoors with Cilento, enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Di Vietri, and pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno.

To plan Salerno vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
