Salerno is a less frequented destination, but one that has as much history and interesting sites as others along the Amalfi Coast. All this was brought alive by our wonderful guide, Filomena. Her knowledge and presentation were excellent as we wandered from one end of the old town to the other where the new shopping district starts. Putting everything in context from ancient times to today gave us a wonderful perspective and education of the area. This is something that anyone spending any time in Salerno needs to do.

The experience was wonderful! We visited Pompeii, Sorento and Positano. Our guide was Davide, he is excellent at his job, he knows the history, the important details, very nice and attentive.
