  • It is a beautiful place with some very nice Visual. It is easy to get there from Salerno via collective 19 and is fairly economical to do. Their guards are super friendly and attentive.

  • I switched on the fly to review a panorama that I hadn't seen in a long time. Always beautiful, breathtaking ... I stopped for coffee at the bar of the Castle, where the bartender between his arrogance and undrinkable coffee tried to spoil the mood due to the great posto....ma there failed.

  • Ruined castle with the museum of ceramics and coins. Situated on top of the mountain, close to the sea shore so the views are great and worth seeing. However, the castle itself is nothing uncommon in itself - stone walls, staircases etc. Nice place for a stopping if you're travelling on A3 highway to Salerno, as it's really close.
  • Nice views of the city but the castle itself is a waste of time, the path is not very clear and you often end at dead ends where there is nothing interesting to see. The museum is very small.
  • The view is incredible here. The museum is a little steep in price but walking through the castle is totally worth it.
  • Amazing views, but the castle itself was a disappointment
  • The ruins of the ancient Lombard Castle are among the most beautiful things of Salerno. Dominating the city and offers a beautiful view of the coast. Is a piece of history of the entire Italian midday. Today there are only the ancient remains but it is absolutely worth visiting.
