I don't know if Paestum is "real Italy" but the oldest Greek temples outside of the Acropolis is a short train ride from Salerno, you can definitely see some of the countryside on the way! I would also suggest after Paestum, wandering around the historic center of Salerno and the Duomo would be really nice...

You could also take the SITA bus from Salerno to the Amalfi Coast town of CETARA (20 minute ride), which is a real fishing village unspoiled by tourism. However, there is nothing "to do" in Cetara, as contrasted to Paestum, which has a wonderful museum in addition to its three famous Greek temples. You could also spend the day visiting Salerno itself, which is a wonderful city with a gorgeous seaside promenade and a world-class cathedral second to none. You could also ride the SITA bus back and forth to AMALFI (75 minutes each way), visit the spectacular cathedral there, and return to Salerno to visit its own cathedral.

Paestum would be my first choice, followed by Vietri sul Mare, where they specialize in ceramics.

a half day visit to Paestum plus a 10 min ride up from Salerno to Vietri and then exploring the historic center of Salerno and its Duomo would definitely be a nice view of Italy and relaxing day as well!

You should consider a private boat tour of the Amalfi Coast. We used Amalfi Sails last year and they were great, reasonable prices, great service with a wide variety of boats to choose from.

You can check them out www.amalfisails.com
