I think you meant driving to Puglia, right?

It depends on time of year--traffic can be a nightmare. But you could leave the car in Salerno and take a ferry over. Of course it is worthwhile if you like scenic views.

Also recommended is a stop at Paestum, south of Salerno, if you find Greek temples interesting.

yes i did mean doing a stopover in salerno while going from Tuscany to Puglia. what would be the best way to spend 1 free day in salerno and do the "must see'" sights on the amalfi coast ?

Should we go to amalfi or positano or sorrento ? should we take the bus or ferry from Salerno ?

The ferry will give you great views of the Amalfi coast.

Thanks for the tips provided so far - where can I park my car in Salerno and how much is the parking? What is the length of time required for this ferry trip including sightseeing ?

I think a ferry to Amalfi (and a bus to Ravello) is a great idea for a day trip, we more or less left on the 9:30ish boat, went to Amalfi, wandered about, took the bus to Ravello, ate lunch and went to Villa Cimbrone, back down to Amalfi, and was back to Salerno by like 4 or 5....it wasn't too long of a day, but we were tired, though we felt like we saw a lot.....we even went up to Vietri (just a 10 min bus ride up the road) to see the pottery there.....

You could either do Amalfi/Ravello or Amalfi/Positano, but I wouldn't suggest all 3, it would be too tiring for me......but you also need some time to explore Salerno! (which is best enjoyed with the townsfolk...during their nightly passiagiata) Take a stroll along the lungomare, grab some gelato from Nettuno, and enjoy the seabreeze and people watching!

and about parking.....I would ask your hotel first, but there are 2 large lots at piazza della Concordia, almost directly in front of the station, at the tourist port.....not sure about pricing...
