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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Positano: Ravello (Villa Cimbrone Gardens, Villa Rufolo, & more) and Amalfi (Wine Tours & Tastings, Cimitero Monumentale, & more). The adventure continues: get great views at Il Sentiero Degli Dei, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cloister del Paradiso, take in panoramic vistas at Torre di Grado, and get outside with Walk of the Gods.

To see maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Positano tour itinerary builder tool .

Hartford, USA to Positano is an approximately 19-hour combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Hartford to Positano. Traveling from Hartford in May, Positano is somewhat warmer at night with lows of 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sat) to allow enough time 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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Sun): get to know the fascinating history of Il Vecchio Centro Storico di Romagnano al Monte, make a trip to Promenade Trieste, then pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Salerno, then learn about winemaking at Le Vigne di Raito, and finally take in the exciting artwork at Sol’Art Ceramiche.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Salerno trip itinerary planner.
