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

  • Take bus up but only operate roughly every 1.5 to 2hrs ended up walking down lots of steps but in the shade of pine trees. Amazing views from up there and cost €4 to get in pp. Very much a ruin but worth the visit for the view.

  • Worst meuseum I have ever been to. All of the plaques are faded. Most spots in the castle are blocked off. Saw some dusty wine bottles, wrote the word 'sad' in the dust. Saw a broken glass door. Expensive for what you get. Disappointed for having to travel up by bus and wait an hour after closing for the bus to come. But the goats provided some entertainment.

  • Beautiful view. But to visit it cost some little money and it's not too much to visit. Moreover they put a price to go to the highest point of the castle to enjoy the view (that's why 3 stars).

  • Amazing view, the white horse was the best part Picture it: 2017, Salerno. A young American woman is taken to a castle by a handsome Italian man. Okay, okay. I'm starting to sound like Sophia off "The Golden Girls" but the set up does have a point. My escort was showing me around Salerno that day, and said he'd like to take me to a castle. I had no objections. As we drove up toward the castle, and nearly reaching the parking lot, with no one around for miles, not a soul in sight, what lay before us in the middle of the road? A white horse! Randomly standing there in the middle of the road, with no one attending to it, and no sign of its owner looking for it anywhere nearby. We were floored, speechless, and I was smitten and charmed by the whole event. Feeling like a princess for an afternoon, we proceeded to pet the horse, and then walk up on foot to the castle. The castle was beautiful, still, peaceful and remote. It had the most gorgeous view and the grounds were ancient and haunting. As though you could imagine what life was like so long ago, the wind would howl in our ears and while it was cold, even for a mid-January day the sun all but warmed us up fully. The castle was amazing, but the horse had ruined (no pun intended) it all for me for the rest of the day. I mean, how often does a handsome prince take you to a castle only to present a white horse which is laying in wait for you?

  • Sweet spot above town. It was beautiful and relaxing. Loved it!
