Salerno is a town in the Italian region of in Campania, on the Amalfi coast. Salerno benefits from a warm, Mediterranean climate and is one of the sunniest town in Italy.
Salerno was founded as a Roman colony in 194 B.C. and has throughout history been occupied by the Goths, Byzantines, Langobards and the Normans. Today Salerno is the principal town of the Amalfi coast, and is a lively port town with plenty to see and do.
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.
Malta is a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea just south of Sicily. There are lots to do and visit on the island including Fort Rinella, Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, the Megalithic Temples, Valletta water front, scuba diving and of course relaxing on the gorgeous beach!

03 May 2012Car delivery from UK to Malta
We were delivering a car from the UK to Malta. The route from Genoa/Livorno to Malta has been closed, so this was the only option other than driving all the way to Sicily then getting a ferry to Malta. The ticket price was the same as the old route from Livorno to Malta but of course with the added cost of 500 more road miles and a nights hotel. The MS Translubeca used on this route is basically a freight vesssel with a few spaces for cars/vans and their passengers. The cabins/suites are huge for such a crossing and are extremely well fitted out. Typical for a northern european built ship. The restaurant/lounge were very nice but the food, dinners/lunch and breakfast were very basic. The bar was closed throughout the crossing and only beer was available with the meals. The accomodation block, 32 cabins, was situated on 3 floors and was served by a lift, but to get from the car deck to the lift involved heaving your suitcase up very narrow steep stairs through machine/plant rooms on 2 decks. Dirty and oily, hot and very noisy. Again the consequence of being a freight ship. The ship docked in Catania, Sicily, for 6 hours and during that time we were not allowed ashore, apparently for security reasons. So a very basic lunch had to be taken on board. All in all an average experience. Luckily I will not be bringing another car to Malta from the UK so I wont have to experience this trip again. I would not recommend this route as one of choice but it is currently the only route to get a vehicle to Malta with minimum driving.
