The views of Salerno from the castle are spectacular, and the castle is fun to explore on your own. There is a small museum which is interesting but doesn't take long to go through. We took the #19 bus there (direction towards Croce) and back. There is a bus ticket office near the train station that has the timetables in... More

The castle is mind-boggling, very large with so many areas to climb around and explore. The museum is small but nicely portrayed with items found in the castle from centuries ago. The view of Salerno is awesome and the castle's setting in a wooded area is quite beautiful. There is a bit of a climb from the road to the... More

We visited the castle last week . The views over Salerno are stunning, breath-taking .There was a concert there that evening so we didn`t get inside the castle , but it was worth going up the hill to see the views below. Memorable .

The castel is impressive, all made out of stones and the size of their tower and walls is incredible. Once at the top, you can see the beauty and complexity of Neapels and of course a nice shot of the Vesuvio.

Took the number 19 bus from Salerno out to the castle - direction " Croce". Buy return ticket at the tabachi beforehan and validate on the bus automatic machine. Wear flat shoes as quite a walk up to castle entrance proper from bus stop. Interesting ruins with fabulous panoramic views of the Amalfi coast . Worth the trip just for... More

I must say it was not a short climbing ..... once we enter the castle... More

If you are using public transport you need to take bus number 19 and remember to get a RETURN bus ticket as there is no where to buy one when you are in the castle. It takes about 15 minutes from Salerno by bus to reach the castle and it is a very easy ride. Remember to check the time... More

In Salerno there is this castle from Medio eve, it was built before 1000 d.C. Inside there are bar and restaurant. it isn't easy to go by public transport, but from there you may have a wonderful view of the Salerno Gulf.

The view of Salerno from the top platform of the Castello is absolutely breathtaking. You can catch a local bus no. 19 to the Castello but be aware that to come back down might be a problem as the bus doesn't run frequently. After waiting around for nearly 1 hour, we decided to walk back down. It took 45mns to... More
