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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Fornillo and Lido Capo di Conca. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Positano: Lido di Ravello (in Castiglione), Duomo di Sant'Andrea (in Amalfi) and Spiaggia di Atrani (in Atrani). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Villa Cimbrone Gardens, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Duomo di Ravello, explore the fascinating underground world of Cave of Smeraldo, and enjoy breathtaking views from Torre di Grado.

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.
Family-friendly places like Pompeii Archaeological Park and Boat Tours & Water Sports will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Spiaggia Lannio (in Cetara), Spiaggia di castiglione (in Castiglione) and Santa Maria de Olearia (in Maiori). Next up on the itinerary: delve into the distant past at Paestum Ruins, make a trip to Centro Storico Salerno, enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Di Vietri, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Spiaggia Di Minori.
