"Salerno to Amalfi ferry trip"
Excellent service from Travelmar. Arrived early and they transfer our tickets to an earlier crossing. Lovely scenery. Stopped at various drop off points and saw places from a sea approach. Well worth avoiding a crowded coach for a select group and fantastic views from the sea.Read More Read Less
"easy way to visit Amalfi Coats"
To get the best views of Amalfi you need to arrive by sea. The ferry had the added bonus of not having to worry about very expensive parking and hairpin bends - so relaxing. We parked in Salerno - just 1 euro/hour - and hopped on the boatRead More Read Less
"check carefully if the ferries are running"
All was fine with our outward trip but the day before our return we discovered that all the ferries were cancelled due to bad weather - which didn't seem too bad at all for someone used to the English Channel! We were told there was a good chance that they would run on the next day but we had to make alternative plans, just in case. The ferries are very small boats so even a light-ish breeze can cause problems. In the end our ferry did run, but was pretty uncomfortable and we quite saw the need for their caution. So, check the weather forecast very carefully.Read More Read Less
"Lovely way to travel to Amalfi "
We very much enjoyed our ferry trip to Amalfi, and would highly recommend it It's much more romantic, and more fun, than travelling by bus, and certainly more scenic. A great way to begin a visit to the Amalfi Coast.Read More Read Less
The Italian city of Salerno is located on the Gulf of Salerno on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is the capital of the Salerno region of Italy, and is close to the Amalfi Coast. The town is well known as the home of the first medical school in the world, the Schola Medica Salernitana. The city, which is the cultural hub of the region is popular with visitors who enjoy strolling around the city taking in the wonderful sights, many of which are located close to the city centre. The city is characterised by beautiful pedestrian street, large piazzas and lovely shops.
The city is located in the centre of a geographical triangle nicknamed the Tourist Triangle of the 3 P's, whose corners take in the towns of Pompeii, Paestum and Positano. Because of this there are many points of interest including the Lungomare Trieste (Trieste Seafront Promenade), the Castello di Arechi (Arechi's Castle), the Duomo (the Cathedral) and the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana (the Educational Museum of the Salernitan Medical School).
The Italian town of Amalfi is the largest town located along the Amalfi Coast which is in the Province of Solerno. The town lies on the shores of the Gulf of Solerno and at the base of Monte Cerreto. Along with many other towns along the Amalfi Coast such as Ravello and Positano, Amalfi has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town's written history dates back to the 6th century AD and soon after became an important maritime power by trading grain from its neighbours, slaves from the interior, salt from Sardinia and timber, in exchange for gold dinars minted in Egypt and Syria. This trade was carried out in order to purchase Byzantine silks that it then sold on to the West.
The town is used to looking after its visitors with several former monasteries having being converted into hotels. The Luna Convento was converted in the beginning of the 19th century and the Cappuccini Convento was converted in the 1880's. Celebrated visitors to Amalfi included the composer Richard Wagner and the playwright Henrik Ibsen, who both completed works whilst staying in Amalfi.
