    The Duomo is (besides the cute center around it) the highlight of Salerno. Although it is definitely worth a visit, it is not the best Duomo of Italy. Just go here for a couple of minutes and then wak in the center. A funny thing (don't know if this was permanent), but you could see people in New York through a screen and they could see you.

    The old architecture, the tiny streets and the small places to sit down for a drink or something to eat. It's so beautiful!

    We visited here in March and being out of season it was very quiet except for the locals. It has a lovely promenade and makes a great walk along the beach to the harbour area. Lots of street sellers who kept being moved on by the police. It has a lovely atmosphere. At the time of our visit there as a nice building which will be apartments and shops being built they will have sea views, close to the beach and will probably be in high demand when finished

    We didn't know anything about this history so found it interesting to see how it came about and was developed. There are some nice views as well. A bit of a walk up from the old town but worth it and a chance to look around on the way.

    What a delightful communal park for everyone to use. It is close to the promenade and the Old Quarter of Salerno. There are some lovely Old trees in the park which will give welcome relief from the hot sunshine in the sunner

    We came here on a cruise ship. Lovely walks. We walked up to the castle which was quite a long walk. The scenery was amazing and we took the steps back down which was nice. People very friendly. Lots of different breeds of dogs walking with their owners.

    We stumbled upon this by accident. Were geo caching in the area and visited. A beautiful old church there is an information sheet to read inside about the history. There is also a separate area to visit which shows you some beautiful wall painting or frescoes underneath the church

    The artifacts inside were really great; there was a whole room with many (there used to be 70) amazing ivory tablets from the 12th century depicting stories from the Bible which are the main feature of the museum. Most of them are kept in the museum, though some others are spread out across the world in many famous museums. Moving on I passed through some rooms containing medieval objects and then through rooms with paintings covering the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. With a student discount I payed only 1€

    We took from here the ferry to Capri for 25€ per Person one way which was ok. But Don’t buy any coffee in the shop while waiting for the ferry it’s a tourist ripoff. You pay 3x more than in the City

    This is one of the oldest and most famous churches in Salerno.
    It's only open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 1pm. I believe TCI volunteers enable it to be visited. Entrance is free.
    If you found the wonderful San Pietro a Corte church then you are only five minutes away so don't give up as the locals will point you in the right direction.
    The Touring Club Italy were hosting an exhibition of the artist Giuseppe Villani's Salerno works which I believe he's just had published as a complete collection. Sr Villani was kind enough to give up his time and show me round the church and the wonderful crypt with its famous frescoes. Totally breathtaking !
    I was then able to spend time admiring the Salerno scenes . It was lovely to spot places I had been strolling through that very same day.

    The weather was dismal on the November 2019 day i visited but it was well worth the hour or so i spent wandering the immaculately kept cemetery. As always at such places simply reading the names on the graves and looking at the ages of those who fought in the Italian campaign leaves you very appreciative of their sacrifice. The epitaphs are very moving. The Italian campaign is often overlooked in the UK but it was the costliest WW2 endeavour for UK and Commonwealth forces in terms of casualties as they slowly pushed their way north.

    Two fairly large rocks not far from the shore, the swims as kids to reach them and the reckless dives in the crystal clear water of the Amalfi coast a dream, today the water is less crystalline but the show remains unchanged

    We only visited the restaurant as we were staying in another hotel over the road. The food and the view were great but the staff were quite rude and gave poor service.
