An ideal base
from which to visit
of the Amalfi Coast
The particular geographic position of Praiano, right in the heart of the Amalfi coast, makes it an ideal place from which to start visiting the surrounding places: the distance to Amalfi is just 9 km, 4 km to Positano, Salerno 34 km, Sorrento 22 km, Naples 50 km, Ravello 15 km, and Rome 260 km.
Everyday, during the summer season it’s possible to organize a boat trip to visit the island of Capri.
As for beaches, the village extends till the sea; on one side there’s the Gavitella’s little landing , and on the other, Marina della Praia, which is accessible by private car, or by public transportation, with the bus stop being very close to the villas, and runnning to the beach.
Marina della Praia, flanked by the high cliffs of a romantic deep valley, where the houses look out to the sea, represents the most important access to the sea, that in the past used to be a trading point for merchandise, also a place for the manufacturing of boat cordage and where people used to salt fish.
In place of the past handicraft, now there are tourist facilities, where you can find snack bars, famous restaurants, where the pleasure of food and the pleasure of the magnificent landscape are blended.
