Join me on a walking tour in the historical center of Salerno. Salernum was founded by the Romans in the 2nd century B. C. but the most important period for the city was in the middle ages. After the destruction of the Roman Empire in Italy the Lombards created a dukedom in Campania and Salerno became its capital. In this time Salerno was one of the most important cities of the Mediterrenean sea, Here was founded the first Medical School around the end of the 9th century A. D. We will go to discover the history and the architecture of the medieval time with a visit into the Cathedral of Saint Matthew, a spectacular example of Arab-Norman architecture. This church also contains a beautiful crypt in Baroque style.
In this tour we will see the historic center of Salerno. We will visit the public gardens, the most important squares of the historical center (Piazza Sedile del Campo, Piazza Abate Conforti, Piazza Flavio Gioia), the Lombard and Norman buidings, the Monumental complex of Saint Peter, the Saint Matthew Cathedral and its baroque crypt.
