We loved wandering around the Centro Storico, peering down alleyways and into interesting nooks. This feels like an authentic old quarter and not a tourist trap done up to lure people in. There are no souvenir shops, just the kind of stores that local people...More

The ancient part of this city is charming but lacking the big hits that characterises Naples. It has pretty, winding alleys. The thing to be aware of is that it has a siesta from ? to 5pm. We were wandering around at about 3:30pm and...More

A lovely area in the centre of Salerno, all steep, narrow cobbled streets with interesting shops, bars and restaurants where you can really soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful old Italian town. Several fantastic churches to visit too - the Duomo and San Giorgio...More

It's a nice area to go for dinner and walk through it's small streets and shops. The Duomo there is worth visiting and some of the pizzerias are great !

Very different experience of Italy than what one gets in the larger cities. Lots of small shops, restaurants, and coffee shops, along the narrow stone paved streets, lined with historic buildings.

See many old towns and this is not even close the top. Quite boring and not very clean. Too many walls full of tags. And church was not impressive.

As we didn't actually stay in Salerno itself I can't really recommend where to stay. There is a bus and train station in the centre next to each other. Also from the port you can get the ferry to the Amalfi coast and visit... More
