So you're looking for an Italian coastal holiday, but you want something a bit different than what everyone else is doing? Salerno holidays are here for you. This often overlooked coastal city sitting on the Tyrrhenian Sea has a rich history, beaches and museums, and is easy to reach by land or by air. Ready to check out its medieval architecture or even make the journey to nearby Pompeii? Book today and get moving tomorrow: Salerno is waiting!
Salerno was a huge centre for learning, arts and culture in the Middle Ages, so it's no surprise that it's home to many museums and cultural landmarks. There are several medieval palaces to explore, as well as some impressive churches, including the Cathedral, which houses not only the tomb of Matthew, one of the 12 Apostles of Christ, but a lifelike wax effigy of Pope Gregory VII (yikes!). History buffs will want hotels in Salerno near the old town centre, whose charm has been well-preserved over the years. Lovers of antiquities will also be pleased to hear that Salerno accommodation is only around 40 km from the spectacular site of Pompeii—why not take a day trip out to the fabled Roman resort town?
Salerno is a hub for train travel, so you can easily get to Rome, Naples and even as far north as Venice. The “Eternal City” is just 350 km away, so check out our accommodation in Rome and add attractions like St. Peter's Basilica and the Pantheon to your getaway checklist.
