Cheap Vacation in Amalfi Coast - Choose Salerno

Amalfi Coast is one of the most desired places for a vacation in Italy, but the prices of the accomodations and meals are too high there. What can we do to lower the expences? We can choose an other modality of accomodation and pay less for our meals, too.

If you do not want to sleep in a tend and eat only essential foods like bread, we can find prices of everything about 3 times lower in the nearby town, the capital of the province, Salerno.

I love Salerno. It's a very nice and calm little town (about 135 000 residents, I think) with very rich on historical places old, early Medieval, town and cured, very sympatic new parts. Seaside is about 6 km-s long and there is very good bicicle road till Paestum. 

On this photo you can see the best, newest and biggest hotel of the town. There is a great underground parking (green place for the hotel). 

Salerno, as a capital, has nightlife possibilities, and there are many pizzerias, bars and other places where you can eat good and cheap foods at any time of the day

But the most important thing for those who is interested in cultural program, is the excellent strategical position of this town. Yuou need maximum 40 minutes to reach Naples, Caserta/Capua, Pompei, Paestum. If you want to visit Messina, you have to travel with modern trains only 3 hours. Or, if you want to walk one day in Venice, you can take a night train, come in Venice in the morning, stay there one day and turn in Salerno with the night train the same evening. I do so everytime I have a wish to pass one day in Venice.

Salerno has not only 4 stars hotels and residences. There are some hostels like this one in my photo, where you can sleep paying from 10 to 15 euros per night. You can control real time offers in Salerno here:

Some steps to go out in the maine street and you can eat "panino" like this in my photo paying 3 euros for it. If you take water with you, you don't need other expences for your lunch. "Panino" is big, with meat and vegetables (you can choose what you want to eat) and it's enough to continue your explorations.

My advice, if you want to go in an other place, in Pompei or Paestum or on the beach, is to take your lunch here, in Salerno. Even if you will find many places where to eat everywhere.
