Salerno — 1 night

Unspoilt Gem of the Amalfi Coast

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.
Start off your visit on the 24th (Mon): head outdoors with Outdoor Activities. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: don't miss a visit to Promenade Trieste, pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno, then take in nature's colorful creations at Giardino della Minerva, then delve into the distant past at Castello di Arechi, and finally don't miss a visit to Centro Storico Salerno.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Salerno trip planner.

Renowned for its beautiful landscape and medieval fishing villages that cling precariously to the Mediterranean cliffs, the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's top vacation destinations. This World Heritage Site stretches for about 50 km (30 mi) on the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and offers numerous places to visit, from terraced lemon gardens and whitewashed villas to cliff-top views of the sea. Explore the coastline's towns, bays, and resorts. During the peak tourist season, the Amalfi Coast's single seaside road is often jammed with dozens of buses. For that reason, the ubiquitous scooter may be the best way to get around and sightsee. You can also access quite a bit by bicycle.
