Salerno

Unspoilt Gem of the Amalfi Coast

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.
Explore Salerno's surroundings by going to Spas (in Minori), Chiesa San Pietro Apostolo (in Cetara) and Maiori (Santa Maria de Olearia, Chiesa di San Francesco, &more). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno, admire the natural beauty at Villa Comunale, make a trip to Chiesa San Pietro a Corte, and see the interesting displays at Museo Diocesano San Matteo di Salerno.

To see ratings, maps, and other tourist information, read our Salerno trip maker website.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Amalfi (Milleunaceramica, Wine Tours & Tastings, &more), Ravello (Le Ville di Ravello, Duomo di Ravello, &more) and Ruderi della Basilica di Sant'Eustachio (in Scala). There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Il Sentiero Degli Dei, relax and rejuvenate at The Spa at Monastero Santa Rosa, cruise along Amalfi Coast, and enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia Grande.

Renowned for its beautiful landscape and medieval fishing villages that cling precariously to the Mediterranean cliffs, the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's top vacation destinations. This World Heritage Site stretches for about 50 km (30 mi) on the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and offers numerous places to visit, from terraced lemon gardens and whitewashed villas to cliff-top views of the sea. Explore the coastline's towns, bays, and resorts. During the peak tourist season, the Amalfi Coast's single seaside road is often jammed with dozens of buses. For that reason, the ubiquitous scooter may be the best way to get around and sightsee. You can also access quite a bit by bicycle.
