Maiori ©
Maiori is a town and comune on the Amalfi coast in the province of Salerno . Step out of Maiori to go to Ravello and see Villa Cimbrone Gardens, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Villa Rufolo, don't miss a visit to Le Ville di Ravello, head outdoors with Monte Finestra, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Duomo di Ravello.

For other places to visit, maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Maiori trip planning site.

Lisbon, Portugal to Maiori is an approximately 8-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Western European Standard Time to Central European Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Lisbon in June since evenings lows in Maiori dip to °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) so you can drive to Positano.
