Naples

Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Naples: Pompeii (Forum, Villa dei Misteri, &more) and Salerno (Marina Di Vietri, La Bottega di Marilu', &more). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli, explore the world behind art at Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte, engage your brain at MUSA - Museo Universitario delle Scienze e delle Arti, and explore the ancient world of Pompeii Archaeological Park.

To see photos, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Naples trip planning app.

Melbourne, Australia to Naples is an approximately 26-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly. Traveling from Melbourne to Naples, you'll gain 9 hours due to the time zone difference.

Maiori is a town and comune on the Amalfi coast in the province of Salerno . When in Maiori, make a side trip to see Villa Cimbrone Gardens in Ravello, approximately Ravello away. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Villa Rufolo, look for gifts at Ceramiche Cosmolena di Margherita di Palma, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lido di Ravello, and kick back and relax at Spiaggia di Marina d'Albori.

Plan my day in Maiori using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Getting from Naples to Maiori by car takes about 1.5 hours. Traveling from Naples in September, plan for a bit warmer nights in Maiori, with lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to 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.
Step out of Positano with an excursion to Vivaio Ruoppo in Sorrento--about 40 minutes away. There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of Santa Maria Assunta, and take in the pleasant sights at Positano.

To find where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Positano road trip planning app.

You can drive from Maiori to Positano in 1.5 hours. In September, daytime highs in Positano are 31°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. On the 18th (Fri), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
