“Interesting look into the past”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This old town of Agropoli is clustered around the hilltop castle. It has many narrow winding streets that contain unique alleys and beautiful tiny gardens. There are also tiny bars, galleries and shops that you come upon unexpectedly. Wonderful cafes and restaurants with views overlooking the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea provide a place to sit and relax.

“Breathtaking views of the Bay of Salerno”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Passing under a medieval gateway arch and climbing up through a maze of narrow cobbled streets and alleyways will bring you finally to the castle itself, dominating the top of the steep, rocky promontory. The castle building itself has been recently restored and is used for shows and exhibitions however the towers offer a wonderful walkway along the parapets with breathtakingly spectacular views around the bay to both north and south - with no entry charge.

Reviewed 19 June 2014

Wonderful atmosphere but a walk uphill from the new town! The buildings are so old and the Castle is brilliant

“Fabulous views”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

It was very warm so we took a taxi from La Darsena hotel and walked back. The taxi cost 10 euros for 4 of us. The whole place was fabulous and the view from the top was excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

“Lovely stroll among the tiny streets of the fortress.”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Beautiful medieval village of Agropoli, highly recommend to visit in the evening and possibly during the summer season. Personally it was a great experience and I have great memories of the wonderful panorama climbing the stairs leading to the door of what was once a fortress. Breathtaking views and idyllic atmosphere, this village along many streets, lovely restaurants where you would want to sit down and try the cuisine of each of them. Very busy but to be honest one of the most beautiful places in the area, second only to the Amalfi Coast.
