Salerno – End of the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi coast and the Amalfi Coast highway run from Sorrento in the west to Salerno in the east, passing Positano and Amalfi. This region of Campania is one of the most beautiful places on Earth! It is very hilly with gorgeous views of the Mediterranean Sea. Summer in Italy wrote a BLOG on Salerno. Salerno is a seaport that was big in the end of World War II. The Italian main Autostrada from Rome south passes through this town. As you head south, you go through several tunnels. If you exit towards Agropoli, you pass the largest Bufala Mozzarella farms in Italy. You also will pass the Town of Paestum an ancient Greek town with better preserved Greek ruins than in Greece. Beyond Agropoli is the National Forest of Cilento and many fabulous beaches. Enjoy!
