Salerno: A vibrant and bustling city rich of lovely medieval churches
Salerno is a small city located in southwest Italy and situated in the region of Campania, which includes the famously picturesque Amalfi Coast.
Leave your luxury MSC cruise ship in the harbor and venture with us into the heart of Salerno, or further afield. The old part of Salerno, the Centro Storico, is home to many lovely medieval churches and is a vibrant and bustling part of the city.
The town also has one of the loveliest cathedrals in southern Italy. However, many archaeological sites of great importance lie within easy reach of Salerno, and we always strive to provide our cruise passengers with the best deals on these local attractions as well as a well -rounded selection of excursion packages.
Enjoy a day away from the ship in the Greco-Roman town of Paestum, home to the best-preserved collection of holy temples in the whole of Greater Greece (of which Italy used to be a part).
A trip to Padula will prove a memorable part of your cruise holiday, notable for its monastery which boasts 320 rooms, 13 courtyards, 14 fountains and the largest cloisters in the world. Passengers that missed the chance to visit Pompeii or would like to visit again can do so, with an insightful guided tour of this world-class site.
If you are in the mood for more modern pleasures, you can opt for the day trip excursion to the pretty town of Amalfi where you can discover the gorgeous Amalfi coast and indulge in a spot of shopping: be sure to pick up a token reminder of your vacation whilst you’re there!
