Castello Di Arechi - Review
This medieval castle was built in the seventh century on command of the Lombard Prince Arechi II who moved the capital of the Dukedom from Benevento to Salerno. The castle still holds its Roman and Byzantine charm and perhaps the most bewitching feature of the castle is the views it affords. There is an in-house permanent exhibition of ceramics, coins and other artefacts from that period. A lot of tourists prefer to walk up to the castle which is a 45 minutes uphill trek.

Castello Di Arechi, Salerno Reviews
Great views over Salerno and the coast. Catch the no 19 bus to get there. If you choose to walk back down wear good shoes, the path is steep and not well maintained.
Great views from the castle, took a taxi from the Duomo di Salerno (Cathedral of Saint Matthew), cost was €11.60 up and €18 back down. Did not have the taxi wait, ordered one when we were ready to leave (be aware, taxis start meter from when they get the call in Italy). €30 round trip for some nice views and memories, did not pay the extra €4 to enter based on reviews here.
We walked up the hill. Lovely walk and there are great walks from the castle. The castle itself is nothing special. If you want to know about it's history you need to research it.
Great Views from the peak but the castle ruins and museum require a bit of investment. Although for 4 Euro you can't really complain
Beautiful experience! The view from the top is breathtaking! If you travel to Salerno, you should really see this castle, especially if you love history.
