Salerno is a picturesque ancient city in Campania, located on the Gulf of Salerno on the Tyrrhenian Sea. It has always been a strategic point due to its port that is still active today. Despite its industrial role the city situated on the hill-side behind the port offers a stunning view to its gulf.


Salerno has a long and diverse history that starts with its foundation by the Etruscans. During the Roman Era it gained even bigger importance that was emphasized by the fact that the Lombard conquerors set Salerno as their capital and established a dukedom here. Around 1077 the Normans led by Robert Guiscard built the Cathedral and the city started to revive.

The hosts are really welcoming and helpful. We could pay in for home-made dishes (great price, great quality). The building is a unique one, close to the beach and the centre. Great experience, highly recommend.
