Returning to the city, our tour to discover Salerno will begin at the gates of the main Catholic place of worship, as well as the second most important attraction in Salerno. Salerno Cathedral . The Cathedral of Salerno was built between 1080 and 1085 after the conquest of the city by Roberto il Guiscardo. The feeling, entering the Cathedral of Salerno, is that of having been transported to an Arab country or even to Andalusia: the colonnade with columns from the ancient Roman Forum, the arches decorated with volcanic stone inlays, the loggia with mullioned windows. The feeling is that of being in a very rare place, especially in the South. It is no coincidence that this portico is considered the first example of Mediterranean architecture. Inside the cathedral you must absolutely see the crypt.


FUN FACT : the stump is kept inside the crypt, where, according to tradition, three martyrs were beheaded: Caio, Ante and Fortunato. Legend has it that by placing your ear on it, you can still hear the sound of flowing blood. Leaving the Duomo, you can head towards Piazza Alfano, where the famous Monumental Complex of Santa Sofia is housed. From the Santa Sofia Complex, you will continue walking along via Torquato Tasso until you reach the Giardino della Minerva, most likely the third most important thing to see in Salerno.


Before continuing our tour and immersing ourselves in new scenarios, in such a vast territory in which Mother Nature was so generous, the typical dishes could certainly not be missing, given the abundance and above all the quality of the raw material. After a busy day, we cannot fail to take the opportunity to taste excellent fish, especially the exquisite frying with a delicious lunch, in one of the typical restaurants of Salerno. 


Recovered the energy, the most famous and characteristic street of the city is the Via dei Mercanti. This place is the heart of shopping, the main street to take a look at its many shops and, why not, indulge in some shopping.

Every year it is visited by an ever increasing number of tourists who are completely immersed in the glories of Magna Graecia.

Customers say about us

I learnt about PierPaolo via a friend who had used his services a few years ago. So I needed a reliable, honest, and reasonable transportations in Amalfi areas for a week for our family including 4 kids ranging from 2-8 yo. PierPaolo, his dad and younger brother are exceptional. They are so reliable, honest, thorough, hard working, great communicating , super friendly, helpful, flexible, etc... They waited in their cars while we dined, they made reservations for us and even used his credit card, made stops for us taking pics, etc. They went beyond to make our travels much easier, especially with young kids and accommodated date our plans. On the top of their best services, PierPaolo didn't even charge extra when our family of 3 friends tagged along for excursion and ride to the airport which resulted they had to use bigger bus to accommodate our size along the way.

His services is one of our highlights of our Amalfi. I wished to live close to them so that we would become good friends, not that we weren't now.

Any way, I can't talk enough about how great they are and am humble for their best efforts and services for us.

Grazie mille!
Friends in Westchester, NY highly recommended Paolo to us and he did not disappoint :) We went somewhere different every day with Paulo (Mon-Thurs) including a very early morning ride to Naples airport Friday. Paolo is very warm and friendly, so knowledgeable and has great recommendations. He really puts his all into his clients and personalizes the experiences...that’s huge! Highlights include: Vesuvius, Amalfi Coast drive (of course), lunch in Ravello with an amazing view, shopping in Sorrento & Positano, and listening to Paolo talk about the history, the countryside and his family. Definitely ask for Paolo!!
We had Paolo for two days and were glad of it. My foot was injured so I was using an ace bandage and a cane. Paolo considered and planned the trip in a way that made it possible to enjoy it. He is personable and knows his home turf. I would use this service again!
We was pick up by Paolo and his brother at the train station from Rome to Naples and drive to the villa that we booked for one week in Positano. Paolo and his Family has driven us the whole time we were there. They are always on time, very polite, very personable, very attentive that make your experience of the trip are so wonderful that you want to come back Positano again. I would recommend their service to anyone that planning a trip to Positano in the near future.
