 Get to know Salerno (no more

Salerno is located on the beautiful Amalfi Coast, and can serve as a base to explore this incredible part of Italy. Take a bus or ferry to explore the other charming towns along this coast -- Naples (and the magnificent ancient village of Pompeii), Positano, Sorrento, and Capri. Or you can simply enjoy what Salerno has to offer; there's lots to do in this idyllic seaside town. Stroll the Lungomare Trieste, Trieste Seafront Promenade, which is so picturesque with gardens, palm trees, and lampposts all along the sea. Take in the seaside views, and admire the ornate and colourful buildings along the water. If you walk all the way down the promenade, away from the port, you will see the Castello di Arechi, a seventh-century castle located up on the hill. Also, the Salerno Cathedral is a main tourist attraction (the outside looks a bit rustic); if you venture inside to the Crypt of San Matteo you will see beautifully ornate walls and ceilings - a must see!

The beaches in Salerno leave something to be desired, so if you want to relax on the water then it is easy and cheap to take a ferry for a day trip to the beach. Most Salerno hostels are located near the port, which makes it easy to explore by ferry. The train station or bus station is fairly central and buses are easy to navigate if you know where you are going. Although this is not necessary, as the downtown area is fairly small and it is easy to walk. There is a tourist office outside the train station that can help you with a map and directions upon arrival.

Make sure to book your Salerno hostel quickly to avoid disappointment! As there are limited budget accommodation options, you should reserve your Salerno hostel in advance, especially during peak season!
