Sorrento

A lovely town easily accessible from almost anywhere in the country, Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and sits right on the Amalfi Drive.
Sorrento is known for nightlife, historic sites, beaches, wildlife, and classes. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Francis Church and Convent, take in nature's colorful creations at Vivaio Ruoppo, and don't miss a visit to Piazza Tasso.

For maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Sorrento online road trip planner .

Seattle, USA to Sorrento is an approximately 18-hour combination of flight and train. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Seattle to Sorrento due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Seattle in September: high temperatures in Sorrento hover around 80°F and lows are around 68°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Thu) early enough to catch the ferry to Positano.

Positano

Positano ©
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.
Get out of town with these interesting Positano side-trips: Ravello (Villa Rufolo, Duomo di Ravello, & more), Amalfi (Duomo di Sant'Andrea, Wine Tours & Tastings, & more) and Lido di Ravello (in Castiglione). And it doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Il Sentiero Degli Dei, kick back and relax at Fornillo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cloister del Paradiso.

Plan my Positano trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
