Salerno

— 3 nights

Unspoilt Gem of the Amalfi Coast

While often overshadowed by the Amalfi Coast's array of quaint villages, Salerno has become one of the region's main areas for culture and entertainment, while remaining relatively unmarked by tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Salerno: Vesuvio National Park (in Ottaviano) and Paestum Ruins (in Paestum). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Pompeii Archaeological Park, don't miss a visit to Promenade Trieste, stop by La Bottega di Marilu', and explore the historical opulence of Castello di Arechi.

Positano

— 6 nights
Often referred to as the gem of the Amalfi Coast, Positano remains one of southern Italy's most sought-after vacation locales, thanks to its hillside location and picturesque, pastel buildings.
Explore Positano's surroundings by going to Sorrento (St Francis Church and Convent, Piazza Tasso, &more), Ravello (Villa Cimbrone Gardens, Villa Rufolo, &more) and Ruderi della Basilica di Sant'Eustachio (in Scala). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Duomo di Sant'Andrea, examine the collection at Museo della Carta, kick back and relax at Fornillo, and look for all kinds of wild species at Le Ali nel Vento - Birds of Prey Experience.

For more things to do, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Positano journey maker site.

Renowned for its beautiful landscape and medieval fishing villages that cling precariously to the Mediterranean cliffs, the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's top vacation destinations. This World Heritage Site stretches for about 50 km (30 mi) on the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and offers numerous places to visit, from terraced lemon gardens and whitewashed villas to cliff-top views of the sea. Explore the coastline's towns, bays, and resorts. During the peak tourist season, the Amalfi Coast's single seaside road is often jammed with dozens of buses. For that reason, the ubiquitous scooter may be the best way to get around and sightsee. You can also access quite a bit by bicycle.
