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.
For shopping fun, head to Sol’Art Ceramiche or Made In Salerno. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Pompeii Archaeological Park and Chiesa di Sant'Agostino. Get out of town with these interesting Salerno side-trips: Spiaggia Lannio (in Cetara) and Spiaggia di castiglione (in Castiglione). There's more to do: stroll through Spiaggia di Marina d'Albori and browse for treasures at Libreria Antiquaria Vecchi Libri.

To see traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Salerno road trip tool.

Houston, USA to Salerno is an approximately 17.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Houston to Salerno due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Houston in June, you will find days in Salerno are little chillier (79°F), and nights are about the same (72°F). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) to allow time to ride a ferry to 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.
We've included these beaches for you: Fornillo and Lido Capo di Conca. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bagni d'Arienzo Beach Club, Positano and Ceramiche d'Arte Carmela. Get out of town with these interesting Positano side-trips: Spiaggia di Atrani (in Atrani), Lido di Ravello (in Castiglione) and Ravello (Villa Cimbrone Gardens, Ceramiche D'Arte Pascal, &more). There's much more to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cloister del Paradiso, tour the pleasant surroundings at Spiaggia Grande, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Duomo di Sant'Andrea.
