Salerno’s Lungomare Trieste is a scenic seafront promenade that stretches along the Gulf of Salerno, offering lovely views and opportunities for relaxing strolls. The Giardino della Minerva, a historical medicinal garden dating back to the 14th century, is another hidden gem worth visiting.

Visitors can also discover Salerno’s rich history through its museums, including the Archaeological Museum of Salerno, which showcases artifacts from Roman and medieval times.

For those looking to explore the Amalfi Coast, Salerno serves as a convenient base, with excellent transportation connections to towns like Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello.
