Holidays to Praiano set you up with fresh-from-the-net seafood, stunning sea views, and days out along the famous Amalfi Coast.
Praiano is part of Campania’s UNESCO-accredited Amalfi Coast – famed for its sloping, villa-studded cliff-face and colourful lemon groves. Things aren’t as lively as nearby Positano, but that’s where Praiano’s real charm lies. It’s ideal for slowed-down getaways. Highlights include the pretty, domed church in the town centre, and the pebbly beach at the foot of the cliffs.
A slice of history
When it comes to historic monuments, Praiano’s got things covered. The Church of San Luca Evangelista dates back to the early 12th century, and you’ll find a smattering of Renaissance paintings on the walls inside. There’s also the pretty Church of San Giovanni Battista, which features a colourful pottery-effect tiled floor, plus a crumbling Saracen watchtower on the headland.
Praiano is a great base for exploring. The pretty harbour of Amalfi is only half-an-hour’s drive away, and seaside villages like Minori, Maiori and Atrani are only a little further on. Head east, and you can reach the popular resort of Positano, where colourful villas are laddered up the cliffside.
