While often overshadowed by the Amalfi Coast's array of quaint villages, Salerno has become one of the region's main areas for culture and entertainment, while remaining relatively unmarked by tourism.
Change things up with a short trip to Convento di Santa Maria a Castro in Praiano (about 1h 30 min away). On the 14th (Mon), spend a thrilling day on the water with a speed boat tour. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Pompeii Archaeological Park, don't miss a visit to Promenade Trieste, pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno, and stop by La Bottega di Marilu'.
