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 some historical perspective at Villa Cimbrone Gardens and Duomo di Ravello. For shopping fun, head to Ceramiche D'Arte Pascal or Ceramiche d'Arte Carmela. Venture out of the city with trips to Amalfi (Museo Diocesano, Duomo di Sant'Andrea, & more), Ravello (Ravello Arte & Villa Rufolo) and Parrocchia San Giovanni (in Vietri sul Mare). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Fornillo, tour the pleasant surroundings at Spiaggia Grande, shop like a local with Miniaci Art Gallery, and take in the pleasant sights at Sentiero degli dei (Path of the Gods).

To find reviews, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Positano trip itinerary builder tool .

Newark, USA to Positano is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Newark to Positano. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Newark in September since evenings lows in Positano dip to 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to ride a ferry to Salerno.

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.

Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Salerno: Spiaggia Lannio (in Cetara) and Spiaggia di castiglione (in Castiglione). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Duomo di Salerno, browse for treasures at Libreria Antiquaria Vecchi Libri, learn about winemaking at Le Vigne di Raito, and examine the collection at Museo delle arti applicate di VILLA DE RUGGIERO.
