Location information for Salerno

Introduction

For a long time, Salerno was a city you could best avoid. These days are long gone; the city council has buckled down to give the old city center a facelift and constructed a boulevard along the sea. From being a city that was merely a passage on the way to Pompeii or seaside resorts along the Costiera Amalfitana (Amalfi Coast), Salerno is now a tourist attraction itself.

Population

The city has approximately 140,000 inhabitants.

Location

Salerno is located on the Gulf of the same name, part of the Adriatic Sea, just southeast of Naples. The famous Amalfi Coast (with seaside resorts like Amalfi and Positano) stretches out west of town.

Economy

Salerno's economy was hit hard in the seventies of the previous century, when most industry disappeared from the city. This caused the city's decline; nowadays there are only pottery and food factories. Since the city center was done up, tourism has increased significantly and many people are now employed in the service sector. Salerno's port is also important for local economy. It's mainly a container port.

Airports

Salerno Costa d'Amalfi Airport is situated near Pontecagnano, about 15 kilometers southeast of the city center. It's easily reachable by rental car via the Tangenziale di Salerno (SS18) or highway A3.

Public Transport

Buses leave from Salerno for seaside resorts on the Amalfi Coast. In summer months, the road is very busy, and for a more relaxed experience it's better to take the ferry. From Salerno there are ferry connections with Positano and Amalfi, and in summer months also with Maiori and Minori.

Traffic and Parking

Salerno is a busy city and drivers behave Italian. In other words, once you're used to it, you can easily move around. Finding a free parking place in the city center isn't easy, but fortunately there are some parking lots, for example near the Salerno train station, near the marina. This parking lot lies at the end of the Via Santi Martiri Salernitani. 

Hotels

Salerno has a good choice of accommodations, but the better hotels and resorts lie further west, along the Amalfi Coast. In the city itself you'll mainly find budget guesthouses and midrange hotels. Some are excellent; others dubious. Check your room before booking it. There are also hotels along the beaches southeast of town and in Vietri sul Mare, on the west side of the commercial port.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
