The Port of Sapri

Sapri is located at the north-eastern end of the Gulf of Policastro and it is one of the best equipped tourist ports on the stretch of coast between Salerno and Vibo Valentia.

However, boating is not the only resourceIn recent years, another very promising one has been added both from an economic and image return point of view.

The reference is to fast maritime connections to/from the Aeolian IslandsThe service, which operates during the summer period (roughly from the end of June to the end of August), allows you to reach Lipari, Panarea, Salina, Vulcano and Stromboli with all the comforts.

In addition to the quality of the services offered by the Alicost company, the advantage for users lies above all in the shorter travel time which ranges from two to just over three hours at the most.

What to see near the port of Sapri

Sapri is the southernmost municipality of Salerno located on the border with BasilicataThe territory is not very large and therefore lends itself well to a one-day visit as well as a quick touch-and-go while waiting for the hydrofoil to the Aeolian Islands (or to return from the Aeolian Islands).

Among the various things to see we highlight three above all the others: the obelisk in memory of the Risorgimento hero Carlo Pisacane; the statue dedicated to the Gleaner of Sapri, a character written from the poet Luigi Mercantini, also the protagonist of the tragic anti-Bourbon expedition led by Pisacane; finally, the "Apprezzami l'Asino" path, also suitable for inexperienced walkers. The path starts right from the port of Sapri and ends at the Canale di Mezzanotte.
