It reached its cultural height during the Arab occupation, when it became known for the high quality of its mosques and palaces and their vibrant gardens, many of which are still worth a visit today.

    Salerno has many beautiful sights and attractions to keep visitors entertained. The town is overlooked by the Castello di Arechi and its beautiful Giardino della Minerva. The city's old town is also well worth a visit; it has become one of the best-preserved historic town centres, and is full of narrow streets and hidden passageways.

    Salerno is well-known for its historic and grand churches; you can find plenty of marvellous examples of fine architecture and art within the churches of Salerno. The Salerno cathedral dominates the town, and is a popular tourist attraction. Situated in Salerno old town, the cathedral has a bell-tower and is the resting place of St. Matthew the Evangelist. Another church worth visiting is the Chiesa di San Giorgio, a beautiful Baroque church with many famous paintings and frescoes. To see further examples of religious art, visit the Museo Diocesano di Salerno, located close to the cathedral.

    Other attractions include the city's fine selection of museums, from the Archaeological Museum with its famous head of Apollo, to the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana, which houses many important documents from the Schola Medica Salernitana, the first university of medicine founded in Salerno in the 9th century.

      Speedy way to Salerno
      • I took this ferry to avoid the long car drive across Sicily and up the "boot" to Salerno. The ferry was three hours late arriving in Palermo (whilst the check in clerk continuously stated that it would arrive in 10-20 min!) and 2 hours late arriving in Salerno. It took about an hour to disembark. The food service was expensive and the food was mediocre at best. The service of was totally satisfactory and I have no hesitation using it again.
