Salerno may initially seem like a typical big italian city, but the place has a charming, gritty, individuality, especially around its vibrant centro storico (historic centre), where medieval churches share space with neighbourhood trattorias, trendy wine bars and boutiques. The city has invested in various urban-regeneration programs centred on this historic neighbourhood, which features a tree-lined seafront promenade widely considered to be one of the most beautiful in Europe.
From Salerno you can easily reach the divine Amalfi coast with its pearls such as Vietri, Cetara, Minori, Maiori, Amalfi and Positano that from its coast are visible.
