  • interesting to see and hear. exactly! to listen because the media path leads the visitor among the rooms of the Castle describing the structure, meaning, use, history and the events that have happened over the years. too bad the shuttle to reach it is limited in time.

  • The Arechi Castle is worth a visit if only for the views, visited in conjunction with a demonstration.

  • The structure is mostly open ... There is also a museum ... ... beautiful place ... and then view. To see definitely ... many events organized inside at various times of the year.

  • 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.
