PRAIANO – The Amalfi Coast Italy

 


What to Do in Praiano





Church of San Genaro

PRAIANO


The Church of St. Gennaro stands grandly as the only building of baroque architecture along the Amalfi Coast. The cathedral has survived several rebuilds and renovations over the centuries. Its splendour is fully revealed inside, with intricate hand-painted majolica tiles covering its dome and terracotta floors.

The piazza next to the 15th-century church hosts several concerts, sports events and festivals throughout the year. It’s an especially awe-inspiring place during the Luminaria di San Domenico festival, which takes place in late July or early August. During this annual event, the piazza’s lit up by thousands of candles in the evenings.



Mairina di Prai Beach

Praiano


Marina di Praia beach might be small, but its setting is very dramatic with steep rocky cliffs hugging its pebbled shore. Enjoy endless sea views while cooling off in the shallow bay or relaxing on a rental sunbed, or escape the heat to enjoy a meal at the beachfront Da Armandino restaurant. It’s open for lunch and dinner.

The beach has been a busy place since medieval times, serving a spot where local fishermen built and repaired their boats. Today, much of the tiny pebbled beach is dotted with colorful boats and fishing nets jostling for space among the sunbathers.

If there’s one thing the Amalfi Coast and Praiano is known for, it’s lemons. These citrus fruits are grown throughout the area, bathing the entire town in a refreshing lemon scent. Because of this, you’ll find a wide variety of lemon products available. The most famous, however, is limoncello.

Additionally, you can find lemon granita, lemon treats, and lemon candies at food carts and in stores throughout town. There is even an abundance of lemon-scented candles and lemony influence on local perfumes and artworks that you can take home with you to help you remember your trip.
