Giulio's apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos -- very clean, great views, and very historic. Gerardo met us at the apartment to check us in, and he gave us many insightful tips on where to go and what to do in Salerno. The pizzaria at the bottom of the street has delicious food at very reasonable prices. This was our first trip to Salerno and though we knew there were hills, we underestimated just how steep some of those hills are. We definitely got a workout. We were aware of the fact that the apartment is near the top of a hill and that taxis can only take you so far, but it was a bit difficult for us to make that hike up to the apartment and then up all the steps in the apartment, especially with our luggage (though Gerardo was kind enough to carry our bags up the stairs once we reached the apartment). But one of us had injured her knee before the trip and both of us are probably not in as good shape as most Italians, who walk much more than most Americans (something we can learn from them). Just be aware that you will be going uphill often. We did love the views from the apartment, though, and of course you cannot get such wonderful views without being up high. We enjoyed the fact that there are not as many tourists in Salerno as in some of the other nearby towns, and we found the locals to be friendly and very helpful. Giulio had left us a welcome gift of a bottle of Prosecco and some pastries, which was a very thoughtful and much-appreciated touch. He was quick to respond before the trip, and Gerardo or others were quick to respond to any questions or requests we had during our stay. We had them arrange for a taxi to come for us at the bus stop at the bottom of the hill twice. The wifi in the apartment was good too. All in all, this is a lovely apartment. Oh, and the beds are super-comfortable, the most comfortable beds we've slept in in any Airbnb place. The water pressure was good and both bathrooms have nice showers with large shower heads. Very comfortable place to stay.
Highly recommend to stay here! Amazing flat, great location, excellent hoast! Had the best time ever at Guilios house!
Giulio’s place is perfectly located with a nice view on to the sea. What’s even better is the tasteful renovation of the renaissance era house and the stylish and practical furniture. Whether you want to stay home and read or venture out and discover Salerno, Amalfi Coast or Paestum, this is THE perfect place.
