Suggestions for day trips

With a few friends, we have rented a villa near Ravello for 2 weeks this fall. We will have a car. Never having visited the Amalfi Coast, I would appreciate suggestions for day trips, hikes ,restaurants, etc.

Thanks

We loved our tour of Positano with Christine Ornelas of Discover Positano so much that we hired her the next day to take us to Amalfi and Ravello.

Paestum was a really fascinating - with guide Silvia Braggio <silvia@silviaguide.it> based on recommendation in Rick Steves. Three in tact Greek temples from 600BC!

Sylvia also took us on our tour of Pompeii the same day. Pompeii is a work out but Paestum is beautifully peaceful.

Paestum is a must and time it to have lunch at Ristorante Nettuno overlooking the ancient Greek temples. Reviews below:

In addition, if the budget works and they are still running (which I have no idea if they would be) consider a private boat tour of the Amalfi Coast including a circumnavigation of Capri. Check out Paolo at Amalfi Coast Yachts (http://www.amalficoastyacht.it/).

Obviously, visits to Pompeii, Amalfi, Positano and Capri would be well worth it also. Don't miss Naples and it's Archaelogical museum and other sites.

Depending on just how determined you are, amongst many many others, most of the places shown here would be within reach....

But what sort of things would you prefer to see and/or do?
