The most famous attraction is the cathedral, with its Norman-Arabic clock tower and Romanesque design. High above the city is the massive Arechis Castle which offers great views of the port. Salerno features a beautiful seaside promenade called the Lungomare. Salerno is gaining a reputation as a tourist destination.

How Far?

Taxis in Italy are expensive so you are often better off booking excursions with your cruise line or pre-arranging tours with tour companies.  If you like to live as the locals do, then the local bus service is convenient and inexpensive.  It is not recommended that you rent a car!  The Amalfi road is incredibly scenic but also scary.  It would be a shame to miss it because of focusing on the traffic.
