Things to do

Caves, castles, and coastline – oh my!

You've got permission to coast along… along the Amalfi Coast, that is. Enjoy one of Italy's most breathtaking coastlines, and exercise selfie-caution, as those Italian cliffs are jagged and steep! For more breathtaking vistas, visit the Castello di Arechi, a commanding medieval castle with a museum offering views of Salerno and the crystal blue gulf waters. Need a break from catching rays? Go underground to the limestone Pertosa Caves, offering tours to draw out your spelunking spirit. Impress your friends with the facts you learn at Amalfi's Museum of Paper, detailing the history of crafting this everyday essential.


From sailing to spelunking, it's all in Salerno

Ready to set sail? The beaches of Praiano are primed for windsurfing and sailing. Or stay back in the sand to observe the adventurers on the waves. Pack your hiking boots and you can enjoy a trek through the Sorrento Peninsula, offering a variety of trails for hikers of all ages and skills. Prefer to kick back? The Amalfi Coast is home to many vineyards for leisurely afternoons of wine tastings. Check out the underground scene (literally) by touring the Pertosa Caves, or take time to smell the roses at the botanical garden, Minerva's Garden. Positano is the perfect place to get your shop on, from souvenirs to Italian fashion.


Get in Salerno's Mediterranean mood

When you visit the Province of Salerno, Italy you'll be immersed in the Mediterranean climate, with hot and fairly dry summers and mild, windy winters. Expect temperatures in the upper 80s in July and August and in the mid 40s in January and February. A windbreaker will come in handy in the winter thanks to the powerful gusts coming from the gulf. Dreamy, wind-tousled hair isn't the only perk, though. The breezes also bring cloud-free, sunny days. An umbrella is still a good idea to have on hand in winter, when the Province of Salerno vacation rentals tend to offer the best bang for your buck.
