There are many things to do or see in the city: the imposing Arechi Castle, never conquered during its millenary history; the elegant Lungomare, which starts from Piazza della Libertà adjacent to the Maritime Station, whose sinuous shapes bear the signature of Zaha Hadid; the Garden of Minerva, where the medical herbs used by the Medical School of Salerno are still grown; the Diocesan Museum, with its prestigious cycle of medieval ivories of the XI and XII centuries, and the Provincial Picture Gallery, in the heart of the old town and a few steps from the Norman Cathedral; the “Giuseppe Verdi” Municipal Theater, directed by the great musician Daniel Oren.

There are also opportunities for shopping with Corso Vittorio Emanuele, a pedestrian area that continues from the station along the charming Old Town, with the signs of the Lombard and then Norman denomination, home to renowned trattorias to taste the flavors of local cuisine halfway between the land and sea. At a 10-minute drive from the city centre, there is Vietri sul Mare, the first town on the Amalfi Coast and known for its ceramics.
