“Salerno rima d’inverno, o dolcissimo inverno. Salerno rima d’eterno” (Salerno rhyme of the winter, oh! sweetest winter. Salerno rhyme of eternity), these were the last verses written by the renowned Salernitan poet, Alfonso Gatto, about his city. Salerno is a city overflowing with history and bound to its traditions. After a few days spent walking on the sea promenade, that the Salernitani love more than anything else, you will start “feeling” the reason why despite the crazy traffic jams along its streets, people here are so fond of this Mediterranean town laying between mountains and the Thyrrenean Sea.
