The Lungomare Trieste is ideal with its tree-lined garden, which runs along the Tyrrhenian Sea. Among restaurants and bars, the promenade is perfect for a gourmet stop, and above all, walking, you can find the beach of Santa Teresa, a beautiful sandy shore surrounded by rocks where you can enjoy a relaxing break in front of the sea.

Do you like nature? Then you could also take a look at the Minerva Garden, a very old botanical garden located in the center of the city, and which contains many species of plants.
What if it unfortunately rains on February 14th? No problem, because in case of rain, the restaurants on the seafront set up gazebos indoors (even with stoves for those suffering from cold) and offer tempting dinners with a menu specially chosen for this romantic occasion.
Breathtaking views for lovers
Provided that you have the opportunity to move and above all, if you want to enjoy an astonishing view, the Chiunzi pass, which is about 30 km from Salerno, will be perfect for you.
This pass connects the Amalfi Coast and with the Agro nocerino-sarnese, geographical area near the river Sarno. Here you can take photos with your sweetheart while admiring a romantic sunset, but you can also book a romantic dinner at the nearby restaurant.
