Amalfi from Naples
Plan your day in Naples just right and you could experience a piece of the Amalfi Coast while still having time to see the top attractions in Naples. If you can’t decide between the Amalfi Coast and the ruins of Pompeii, the Ultimate Bay of Naples: Pompeii, Positano and Amalfi Coast is a good choice.
If you prefer to travel independently, the picturesque town of Sorrento—considered the gateway to the Amalfi—is only a 45-minute ferry ride or hour train ride from Naples. After experiencing Sorrento’s many charms, take a tour to Positano and Amalfi.

Salerno brims with simple pleasures and ancient treasures. A place as beautiful as Salerno tends to inspire poetry. Top attractions include a medieval castle that overlooks the glittering gulf and a stunning, circa 11th-century cathedral with a bell tower and Byzantine-style bronze doors.
Everywhere you turn, there are frescoes, plazas, colorful mosaics, leafy lemon trees, and iron Juliet balconies that have likely witnessed more than one serenade. You may choose to get lost for hours, winding through the old city’s quiet streets. You can also take a boat to Amalfi or to the Isle of Capri on shore excursions.
