Welcome to Salerno

Often ignored in the mad dash to the Amalfi Coast, the port city of Salerno has a charmingly timeworn old town that is worth a look. Travelers passing through the cruise ship harbor and rail terminal can pause to explore the city’s medieval churches and waterfront promenade before heading north on a shore excursion or day trip to Positano, Amalfi, and other fishing villages on the Amalfi Coast; setting sail for a boat tour around the island of Capri; or taking a leap into ancient history at Pompeii and Paestum.

Top 2 attractions in Salerno

Archaeological Park of Paestum (Parco Archeologico di Paestum)

Though Italy is known for its Roman ruins, much of the southern part of the peninsula was part of Magna Grecia, the Greek Empire, long before the Roman conquest. Vivid testimony of this ancient Greek occupation can be found at Paestum, with a trio of the best-preserved Greek temples in the world, dating as far back as the sixth century BC.More

Salerno Cathedral (Duomo di Salerno)

Just south of the Amalfi Coast, the seaside town of Salerno is home to the magnificent 11th-century Cathedral of Saint Matthew—one of the most beautiful medieval churches in Italy, with an ornate baroque crypt containing the remains of the Apostle Matthew. It’s an easy day trip from Sorrento, Positano, or Amalfi.More
