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 city of Tunis is the capital of Tunisia and is located in the north of the country, close to Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. The city has a lovely mix of architectural styles, wide roads and narrow alleyways which capture the spirit of the southern and northern Mediterranean. The stone walls of the city's 9th century Medina no longer exist, but its narrow streets, souks, mosques and other historic buildings still do exist and have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, in stark contrast to the old town, the Ville Nouvelle (New Town) is orderly and has a colonial elegance that was built by the French. In the centre of the city there are now some lovely buildings including an art nouveau theatre, Franco-Arabic market buildings and a cathedral built in a Roman Byzantine style. A popular pastime, especially to escape the heat of the midday sun, is to relax on a seat in the shady terrace of the Belvedere Park Cafe terrace. Alternatively one of the city's museums, such as the Dar Ben Abdallah or the Musee National du Bardo, are great places to visit at all times but perhaps especially so when it is particularly hot.
