Salerno is a very beautiful city situated in the middle of two enchanting coasts, the Amalfi and Cilento coasts.
In 194 b.C. it was a Roman colony and was named Salernum.
The city made progress and also enriched its culture and its traditions during the occupation of Goths, Byzantines, Longobards and Normans.
The Goths were defeated by the Greeks whose domination lastes 15 years (from 53 to 568), up to Longobards invaded almost the whole peninsula.
In 786 Arechi II, a Longobard prince, transferred the seat of the Dukedom of Benevento to Salerno, in order to elude Charlemagne's offensive and to secure himself the control of a strategic area, the centre of coastal and internal communications in Campania.
The rewal of the historical centre has been directed towards the rediscovery of the artistic and cultural treasures of an exceptional land.
Salerno appears more and more as a welcoming community for tourists from all over the world with its enchanting historical centre where it is possible to admire both the traces of its ancient history and the fervour of artisan shops and places for cultural and musical aggregation attended by thousands of people.
Salerno is a charming synthesis of what the Mediterranean can offer to anyone who wants to know it more closely.
