The Port of Salerno

Over the past 20 years, the port of Salerno has become important for the maritime economy of central and southern Italy. From the circulation of goods, to passenger traffic, passing through shipbuilding, boating and fishing, all indicators recorded significant increases with positive effects on the economy and employment.

Special mention for the Maritime Station designed by the star architect Zaha Hadid. Inaugurated in 2016 in the presence of the highest offices of the Italian state, this infrastructure was built on the Manfredi pier. The project's aim is to accelerate the development of the area especially from the commercial side, even if a part of the Manfredi pier is used for the needs of passenger traffic.

In fact, both from Molo Manfredi and from Molo Masuccio (P.zza Concordia) during the tourist season (from Easter to the end of October) numerous fast connections depart for the most beautiful places of the Sorrento, Amalfi and Cilento coasts, without forgetting Capri and Ischia. It's not over, because at the port of Salerno you can also reach Tunis, Palermo, Messina and Catania by ferry.

Finally, we remember Marina d'Arechi, available to boaters who choose to moor in Salerno while sailing in the Mediterranean.

What to see near the port of Salerno

Despite the intense economic development of the last 20 years, Salerno has maintained its mediterranean image. Just walk along the promenade - one of the most beautiful in Italy for scenery and furnishings - to realize this.

The walk continues in the historic center. Activities of all kinds follow one another along Corso Vittorio Emanuele, via dei Mercanti and via Duomo. Special mention for the ceramic workshops, guardians of an ancient artisan tradition that for centuries has given prestige to the city and neighboring villages (Vietri sul Mare is a few km away).

For the rest, the main points of interest of Salerno are almost all within 1.5 km from the port. We suggest the Provincial Art Gallery, the Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria degli Angeli), the Complex of Santa Sofia and the Minerva Garden. Castello d'Arechi, on the other hand, is about 4 kilometers away, so it is worth visiting only if there's enough time available before boarding.
