How much does it cost to rent a car in Salerno?
The cost of a car rental in one of our offices in Italy is determined not only by the type of vehicle selected but also by seasonality. Precise price developments
can be identified according to the period of the year chosen. In the off-peak season (October, November, January, February) the rates will be much lower than in the mid-season
(December, March, April) and especially compared to the peak season (from May to September) when the costs are influenced by the increase in the demand for cars due to the
significant tourist flows in the cities of art and the main Italian tourist destinations.
Taking a rented car in Salerno is the ideal solution for those who want to visit Campania and get to know all its wonderful landscape shades: from the sea to the
mountains, in a succession of colours, scents and flavours that only this land can offer. Let's first discover what Salerno town has to offer, the ancient gateway to the legendary
Salerno, light and sun
A city suspended between history and the future, immersed in a dazzling sky blue light, Salerno is the emblem of the sunshine of Campania. Here everything is offered in the eyes of
the tourist with that iconic uniqueness that has made these places an international legend. We began to visit Salerno from its old town, which has its beating heart in Via dei Mercanti. Formerly called via Drapperie, for its sale of drapes, this street with a maximum width of 5 metres, contains small shops, artisans, bars and delicious pastry shops.
You can lose yourself in the alleys and be fascinated by via Botteghelle or via dei Barbuti and admire the Fontana dei Pesci in Largo del Campo. Also in the old town,
you will find the city's cathedral, a magnificent example of Mediterranean Arab Norman architecture despite the baroque facade.
As soon as you enter you will find yourself immersed in an Arab-Spanish reality with arcades, loggias, arches, mullioned windows, polychrome marbles and inlays of rare beauty to which
the external bell tower stands out, 52 metres high. Leave the last visit to the Cathedral's crypt, you will be dazzled by the beauty and richness of the frescoes that
illuminate the walls.
Another Salerno wonder is the Minerva Garden, a medicinal botanical garden still perfectly preserved today, originally born as a medicinal reserve of the famous
Salerno Medical School, among the very first in Europe dating back to as early as the thirteenth century. Continuing your tour you can not miss the archaeological
complex of San Pietro a Corte, originally a thermal complex in Roman times and then a cemetery and private chapel as well as parliament in mediaeval times.
You will then be surprised to come across what the people of Salerno call "Bridges of the Devil", which are the absolutely spectacular remains of the ancient aqueduct of the city built
in the ninth century to bring water to the Benedictine monastery.
Standing at the foot of Mount Bonadies where the castle of Arechi stands, named after the Lombard king who wanted to build it. The manor is a massive and imposing structure
that dominates the city, giving visitors a breathtaking view of the entire Gulf of Salerno and the coast.
Inside the fortress, you can visit and we suggest you visit the museum of ancient objects and ceramics that is located in one of its wings.
From the mountain to the sea, we now descend into the plain to walk along the Lungomare Trieste, one of the longest in Italy, a pedestrian island that runs along the
coast of the city and a lush green lung where you can admire a splendid view of the gulf.
In the immediate vicinity, we point out the Maritime Station, which is the cruise terminal of the city. The structure - recently renovated by the famous architect
Zaha Hadid - has won numerous awards and is famous for its particularly innovative design.
One last suggestion: if you happen to arrive in Salerno during the Christmas period you should take a tour in the evening to admire the Lights of the Artist, a review
of lights scattered a bit everywhere in the city and made by various artists with the most varied forms: a festival of light and art really not to be missed!
The surroundings of the Salerno coast
We could call it a full immersion in beauty: the scent of Amalfi lemons, the colours of the hueful Vietri ceramics, the blinding sun of
Ravello, the emerald green of the sea of Maiori and Minori, the magical village of Cetara, and still the enchantment of the temples of
Paestum, the lace of the alleys of Castellabate, the legendary Palinuro.
The walk that we suggest starts from the door of the Amalfi Coast and unfolds along the coastline that will make you discover one of the most evocative and famous stretches of coastline
in Italy. Not only a unique landscape in the world but a journey into Italian DNA to learn about its typical food, wine and craftsmanship.
You will enjoy the best Limoncello, you can buy plates, vases and tiles in glazed terracotta with the characteristic Vietri motifs, and you will taste the spaghetti with the casting
of anchovies of Cetara and the vicci of Castellabate, you will make souvenirs in Palinuro. How can you not fall in love with so much wonder?
