Unspoilt Gem of the Amalfi Coast

On the 16th (Wed), don't miss a visit to Centro Storico Salerno, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Duomo di Salerno, and then stroll around Villa Comunale.

It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday.

In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond. The country's cities and seaside resorts are cosmopolitan powerhouses with museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, open-air markets, and pedestrian-friendly historic areas.
