Amalfi Coast: Salerno Walking Tour

4. Amalfi Coast: Salerno Walking Tour

The guided tour of Salerno will make you discover the hidden beauties of a town that has become popular in recent years even at Christmas with the artist's lights event. The guided tour starts from the Giuseppe Verdi Municipal Theater of the late 19th century and a few steps away you will find yourself at the Municipal Villa, transformed into the Garden of Enchantment. The tour continues in one of the symbolic places of Salerno, the Minerva garden, a multi-level botanical garden that the Salerno Medical School used to teach students the use of medicinal herbs. It is therefore considered the first of the botanical gardens born in Europe, enriched with medieval painted tiles and an enchanting panoramic view of the Gulf of Salerno. The visit continues in the historic center of the city with medieval alleys, the most popular of which is the Via dei Mercanti, a maximum of 5 meters wide, which since the time of the Lombards has been the main commercial street of Salerno. Many shops and local craft shops welcome tourists making the historic center alive and enriched by monuments such as the Fish Fountain attributed to Vanvitelli, former architect of the Royal Palace of Caserta. From this historic street we walk towards the Complex of San Pietro in Corte which was designed by the Romans as a spa complex and then transformed over the centuries into a small church and then a private chapel dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul. The guided tour continues with a visit to the Duomo or Cathedral of San Matteo with a baroque facade that hides a beautiful four-sided portico and the real entrance to the church. The colonnade with arches and mullioned windows are reminiscent of the Arabian style, like the beautiful bell tower over 50 meters high, but the real jewel of the Cathedral is kept in the lower part, that is the wonderful Baroque crypt which houses the remains of San Matteo and is frescoed with scenes of the Gospel and some episodes of Salerno history. Our visit continues by discovering the most evocative corners of the town with the Medieval Aqueduct, also renamed Ponti del Diavolo, which in ancient times supplied water to the convent of San Benedetto and is linked to popular superstitions according to which you can meet demons or spirits malicious at night ... The guided tour ends by walking along the beautiful promenade, one of the most beautiful in Italy with its benches facing the sea and the largest Ferris wheel in Europe overlooking the sea with a spectacular view of the gulf and the Amalfi Coast.

Es un lindo día de actividades en la Costa Amalfitana. Te subes en el tren rápido y en menos de dos horas estás en Salerno, listo para subir al ferry que te lleva a Amalfi, una población llena de colores y alegría. Nosotros nos bañamos en la playa pues era un día de verano. Luego tomamos el ferry hacia Positano. Hermosa vista de los acantilados desde el mar. Y que emoción ver a este pueblo vertical pegado en el acantilado. Tambien nos bañamos en la playa de Positano, para refrescarnos. Completo el día, regresamos en ferry directo a Salerno, donde tomamos el tren para Roma. recomendada excursión!

Alessandro has been very attentive and recommended us an excellent place to try the typical Amalfi Cuoppo, as well as the beach in Positano. A good tour if it is the first time you travel and you want to know the area quickly, but I highly recommend doing it on your own with more freedom using the ferry that takes you from Salerno to both places and enjoy more than one day in each one.

Absolute must if you wish to experience a professional, informative and enthusiastic explanation of the history of Pompeii. And to enjoy an exquisite wine tasting at the foot of Vesuvius following the tour was the icing on the cake - book it

We had a fantastic trip and our guide was brilliant! He was helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this booking this!

Alessandro was super knowledgeable and extremely kind! The tour was seamless and a huge success!
