Salerno — 1 night

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.
Start off your visit on the 24th (Mon): head outdoors with Outdoor Activities. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: don't miss a visit to Promenade Trieste, pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno, then take in nature's colorful creations at Giardino della Minerva, then delve into the distant past at Castello di Arechi, and finally don't miss a visit to Centro Storico Salerno.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Salerno trip planner.

Lyon, France to Salerno is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Salerno when traveling from Lyon in July, with lows around 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Positano.

Positano — 6 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.
Get out of town with these interesting Positano side-trips: Amalfi (Fontana sant'Andrea, Duomo di Sant'Andrea, &more), Piccadilly Ceramics (in Conca dei Marini) and Ravello (Cappella Sant'Angelo all'Ospedale, Duomo di Ravello, &more). On the 28th (Fri), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia Grande, get outside with Amalfi Coast, and stroll through Spiaggia di Atrani.

To find maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Positano day trip planning website.

Amalfi Coast travel guide

4.2
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.
