Salerno

— 2 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Salerno: Minori (Basilica of Saint Trofimena & Chalet de Mar) and Boat Tours & Water Sports (in Maiori). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Duomo di Salerno, don't miss a visit to Promenade Trieste, browse for treasures at Libreria Antiquaria Vecchi Libri, and step into the grandiose world of Castello di Arechi.

For traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Salerno trip maker site.

Valletta, Malta to Salerno is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of bus and train. In July in Salerno, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 29°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) so you can drive to Positano.

Positano

— 4 nights
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.
Explore Positano's surroundings by going to Fiordo di Furore (in Furore), Ravello (Belvedere Principessa di Piemonte, Duomo di Ravello, &more) and Amalfi (Fontana sant'Andrea & Duomo di Sant'Andrea). Next up on the itinerary: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, take in panoramic vistas at Torre di Grado, enjoy the sand and surf at Bagni d'Arienzo Beach Club, Positano, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Parrocchia San Giovanni.

For where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, use the Positano road trip planning tool.

Amalfi Coast travel guide

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.
