I took the top photograph as we entered the port early in the morning, the other pictures were taken late afternoon after we had returned to the ship after a trip to Pompeii. As usual we took a taxi to Pompeii which was quite a bit cheaper and more flexible than using the service offered by the ship, we got back just after midday and had lunch onboard. We then took a free courtesy bus into Salerno itself and had a walk around for a while before getting back in time for the final part of our trip back to Barcelona.
The port was relatively busy and I saw a number of vehicles carriers, tugs and ferries, there were also a number of fishing vessles which made it to my list as they have IMO numbers, unfortunately I saw these from the courtesy bus on the way into Salerno so could not take any pictures.
