Salerno — 8 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.
Attractions like Speed Boats Tours and Promenade Trieste make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Salerno's surroundings by going to Maiori (Parrocchia di Santa Maria a Mare & Castello di San Nicola de Thoro-Plano), Monte Finestra (in Tramonti) and Spiaggia di castiglione (in Castiglione). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Duomo di Salerno, explore the historical opulence of Castello di Arechi, head outdoors with Chalet de Mar, and view the masterpieces at Sol’Art Ceramiche.

Traveling from Portland in June, plan for a bit warmer nights in Salerno, with lows around 72°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) early enough to go by car to Positano.

Positano — 12 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.
Kids will enjoy Fornillo and Villa Cimbrone Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to Sentiero dei Limoni (in Maiori), Ravello (CF Noleggio Scooter, Cappella Sant'Angelo all'Ospedale, &more) and Amalfi (Valle delle Ferriere, Centro Storico, &more). On the 7th (Fri), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. And it doesn't end there: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, get great views at Il Sentiero Degli Dei, enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia Grande, and view the masterpieces at Absolute Positano.

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.
