The island of Capri encompasses all the magical allure of the Mediterranean--dramatic blue waters, lush mountainous landscape, and picturesque island villages.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Blue Grotto and Marina Grande Public Beach. Step out of the city life by going to I Faraglioni and Pizzolungo. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Parco Astarita, admire the natural beauty at Giardini di Augusto, stroll through Marina Piccola, and explore the ancient world of Villa Jovis.

Hamburg, Germany to Capri is an approximately 7-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and ferry; or do a combination of car and ferry.

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.
You'll get in some beach time at Fornillo and Lido di Ravello. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Villa Cimbrone Gardens and Duomo di Sant'Andrea. Venture out of the city with trips to Ravello (Ceramiche D'Arte Pascal, Villa Rufolo, & more), Parrocchia San Giovanni (in Vietri sul Mare) and Amalfi (Valle delle Ferriere & Museo della Carta). The adventure continues: cast your line with a fishing tour, shop like a local with Miniaci Art Gallery, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cloister del Paradiso, and get outside with Spiaggia della Gavitella.

For traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Positano day trip planning app .

Getting from Capri to Positano by car takes about 3.5 hours. In May, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Fri) to allow time to ride a ferry to Salerno.

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.
Head to Sol’Art Ceramiche and Libreria Antiquaria Vecchi Librifor plenty of shopping. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Pompeii Archaeological Park and Ravello Arte. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Salerno: Sentiero dei Limoni (in Maiori), Minori (Spas, Liquorificio Mansi Carlo, & more) and Tramonti (Monte Finestra & Societa Agricola Tenuta San Francesco - S.R.L.). And it doesn't end there: do a tasting at Le Vigne di Raito, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chiesa di Sant'Agostino, take in the exciting artwork at Made In Salerno, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Il Vecchio Centro Storico di Romagnano al Monte.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Salerno using our trip planner.

You can ride a ferry from Positano to Salerno in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and train; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in May, and nighttime lows around 21°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
