Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Wild Boat Salerno


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!

    That's the Italian version of a Harley!

    I've never been to Salerno before…past it, round it, over it but never in it!

    Ciao Laura! Thank you so much for your very kind words. The feedback from readers like you keeps me photographing and writing more and more! Grazie! 🙂

    Ciao Peter! That's it! It reminded me of something and you nailed it right on the head. It's so funny because you know that boat only goes putt-putt-putting along the Amalfi Coast.

    Ciao Leanne! I like Salerno. I haven't spent a lot of time there, but I always have a good time when I do. The Duomo is outstanding!
