You'll find plenty of places to visit near Salerno: Maiori (Boat Tours & Water Sports & Chiesa di San Francesco), Paestum (Lido Mediterraneo Beach, Paestum Ruins, &more) and Monte Finestra (in Tramonti). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Pompeii Archaeological Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Arciconfraternita della Santissima Annunziata e del Santissimo Rosario, pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno, and look for gifts at Lavorazione Artigianale Savastano.
