You'll find plenty of places to visit near Naples: Marina Di Vietri (in Salerno) and Church of Santa Maria Assunta (in Positano). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli, look for gifts at Cardine, admire the masterpieces at Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte, and enjoy the sand and surf at Rosa dei Venti.
