Two-day Detour Before Amalfi Coast

Jump to last reply

Heading with my wife to the Amalfi region in mid-September and we have a two-day opening to fill. I currently have hotel reservations in Gaeta; it seemed like a nice spot to relax, eat and sit on the beach for a couple of days before we continue on to meet friends in Naples. But I'm having second thoughts about that idea and now I am giving serious consideration to Paestum, which appears to be about the same distance (or travel time) to Naples as Gaeta. The ruins and associated museum get rave reviews and the mozzarella bufala and gelato options are compelling as well. If we choose Paestum, that would require me to change our arrival flight to Naples, but that looks doable and perhaps may save me a little $ (the drop in airfare since we booked is greater than the cancellation/change fees).

I'm aware this is an apples vs. oranges question, but to the veterans of this board, is there a clear choice between the two options?

Appreciate the insights as always.
