Must see things for a quick trip to the Amalfi Coast

Going to Italy with my family for my mom's 60th bday in late September.  The first few days we're there, we're thinking of spending on the coast -- Amalfi, Capri, Positano, etc. What are the best things to do/see/stay/eat there?

    Just driving around the Amalfi coast is incredible. Such an interesting place. Positano is well known and incredible. PositanoAnd Capri is likewise incredible and beautiful. It can get very crowded with tourists, but it is well worth visiting. As are the Blue Grotto, or Grotta Azzurra, Capriimage from wowsumitra.comand the Green Grotto which are very cool things to do on Capri.

    But one of my favorite places along the Amalfi Coast is Ravello. Ravello is perched high up above the coastline, has amazing views and is just a beautiful and enchanting place.Ravelloimage from ondaverde.itLunch on the patio at the Hotel Palazzo Avino is a very special occasion type meal (I imagine dinner is as well). Follow that up with a stroll down to the Duomo Di Ravello and the main square for some gelato and people watching.

    I should add that some of the hotels are amazing just to visit for their settings and views. Grabbing a drink or a bite at these places is also worthwhile. I mentioned Palazzo Avino above, but other legendary hotels are Hotel Santa CaterinaHotel Santa Caterinaimage from bluwelcometravel.comLe Sirenuse Le Sirenuse and Il San Pietro Hotel (San Pietro's style is not for me, but the setting and views are incredible).

    If you want to feel like one of the family, visit, stay, or eat at Serafina in Agerola! The owners are absolutely wonderful! For a day trip, you can visit Paestum and wander through the ruins of the temples of Hera, Athena, and Neptune.
