Maiori is a town and comune on the Amalfi coast in the province of Salerno . Explore Maiori's surroundings by going to Vietri sul Mare (Museo della Ceramica, Museo provinciale della Ceramica, &more) and Villa Guariglia (in Raito). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of San Giovanni del Toro, contemplate the long history of Santa Maria de Olearia, take an in-depth tour of Diocesan Museum of Amalfi, and sample the fine beverages at Liquorificio Mansi Carlo.

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 Santuario di San Michele Arcangelo (in Vico Equense), Museo Archeologico George Vallet (in Piano di Sorrento) and Monte Tre Calli (in Agerola). There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Il Sentiero Degli Dei, explore the fascinating underground world of Grotte di Suppraiano, don't miss a visit to Parocchia di San Luca Evangelista, and take in panoramic vistas at Torre di Grado.

To see other places to visit, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Positano tour itinerary maker.

Traveling by car from Maiori to Positano takes 1.5 hours. In February, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) to allow time to take a bus to Naples.
