Salerno is an ancient city located on the Tyrrhenian Sea in the Campania region of Italy. Once a Greek naval base in the 6th century B.C., Salerno has long played an important role in Italian history. It was the site of Europe's first medical school, and today has become one of southern Italy's most popular seaside destinations.
Century-old cathedrals and the ruins of medieval castles can be found throughout the city, but one of its most popular and recent attractions is the Longomare Trieste, a beautiful palm-lined promenade built in the 1950's. Longomare Trieste stretches out along 2 kilometres of Salerno's coast, and visitors are never far from a relaxing café.

The heart of the city lies in the famed Centro Storico di Salerno, "Historical Downtown Salerno." The district, which features structures dating back to the 11th century, has been incredibly well preserved over time and looks much the same today as it did centuries ago. The Centro Storico is also filled restaurants and excellent shopping along the "Via dei mercanti."
The highlight of a trip to the Centro Storico is certainly the awe-inspiring Salerno Cathedral. Also known simply as the Duomo, the cathedral was completed in 1080, nearly a millennia ago, and remains one Europe's most incredible landmarks. Besides its extensive art collection, the Duomo is known for its beautiful bell tower and its marble crypt.
