Full description
Join this private walking tour led by a local guide to discover the beautiful city of Salerno. With its privileged geographical position, as a junction between the Amalfi and Cilento Coast, Salerno represents the chief town of one of the largest provinces of Italy, boasting 60% of its territory protected by UNESCO and about 200 miles of coasts.

The historical center still hosts many vestiges of the medieval period, during which the town enjoyed full splendor. The ancient structure is still intact because modern Salerno has mainly developed into a "flat" area, leaving the Piedmont region of the "Colle Bonadies," where the ancient town is located, almost untouched.

During this 2.5-hour guided tour, you will have the chance to see the most important and beautiful spots in the city, such as the cathedral built by the Norman Prince Robert Guiscard and dedicated to the patron saint, St. Matthew. Admire the beautiful 16th-century Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation, with its beautiful Baroque bell tower and Piazza Flavio Gioia, the square which is also called 'la rotonda' (the rotunda) because of its characteristic shape. From there, you will Cross Porta Nuova and enter the real heart of the ancient city. Enjoy a panoramic walk along lungomare Trieste, with its many typical restaurants and little shops.
Just one tip: don't forget to bring your camera along.
