Discover one of the most important landing of the WWII


The September 9th 1943 Salerno was the foothold in Europe for the allies and the Operation Avalanche was the first big landing to release the Italians from the NaziFascist power.

In this tour we will follow the tracks of the landings and of the most important battles in the area of Salerno during these tragic days where a lot of soldiers died.

From the museum to the beach we will discover the places where the brave U. S. and Commonwealth soldiers fought for the freedom of Italy and Europe.

In these areas started the end of the World War II.
