Earlier this week I made a trip to Salerno, the city that greets you when you leave the Amalfi Coast road on the Sorrento Peninsula. I like Salerno – it has big city charm, beautiful architecture, a waterfront perfect for an evening passeggiata along the port, and it is much safer and easier to navigate than nearby Naples. I arrived by boat at the Porto Turistico in Salerno just as the sun was beginning to set. (More pictures coming soon!) As I was heading into town, one fishing boat out of the long line of blue and white boats bobbing along the port caught my attention. What a wild paint job! Do you think it makes it go faster? I suppose that’s one way to make it easier to find your boat!
