Naples

Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. Naples is known for museums, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Galleria Borbonica, explore the world behind art at Museo Cappella Sansevero, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cloister of Santa Chiara, and make a trip to Via San Gregorio Armeno.

For other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Naples holiday planner.

Salerno

— 3 nights

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Paestum (Paestum Ruins & Le Mura) and Ravello (Belvedere Principessa di Piemonte, Villa Cimbrone Gardens, &more). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Chiesa San Pietro a Corte, walk around Villa Comunale, pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno, and get a sense of history and politics at Palazzo di Citta.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Salerno trip planning site.

Traveling by car from Naples to Salerno takes an hour. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a train. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Naples in November since evenings lows in Salerno dip to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) so you can take a train back home.

Campania travel guide

Ruins · Landmarks · Art Museums
Stretching along the Tyrrhenian Sea, Campania is noted for its mild climate, picturesque coast, outstanding culinary tradition, and rich legacy of art and culture. Most visitors to this region begin their holiday sightseeing at the sea, where the coastline is marked with secluded bays, tranquil coves, and dramatic cliffs. The lush Mediterranean landscape is home to flourishing towns and charming villages, each steeped in its own culture, art, and traditions, and offering plenty of local places to visit. This ancient land is the birthplace of some well-known culinary favorites, including pizza and spaghetti. Campanians were among the first Europeans to use tomatoes not only as an ornamental plant, but also as food and garnish. The region is renowned for its fruits and vegetables--but its best-known product is mozzarella cheese.

Amalfi Coast travel guide

4.1
Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks · Gardens
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.
