How to get to Praiano
Praiano is located half way between Positano and Amalfi ( 7 km from Positano )
its beauty rises at the base of Monte Tre Pizzi and reaches up to Marina di Praia, one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy. Made of pebbles and set in a high cliff, it is kissed by the sun only in the central hours of the day, but in the evening it comes back to life thanks also to African, one of the coolest discos on the Amalfi Coast, a place frequented by many famous people including , in 1962 during his holidays, even by Jaqueline Kennedy wife of the President of the United States John Fitzerald Kennedy. One of the most romantic walks in the area starts from this beach and goes around the cliff just below the Torre a Mare, the ancient Saracen watchtower.
The town has a number of important houses of worship, including the Church of San Luca Evangelista, famous for its splendid majolica floor, the Church of San Gennaro, the Church of Santa Maria a Castro and the Convent of San Domenico, this last stands in the high Campo valley, from where one of the most breathtaking views in the area can be enjoyed.
Reflecting the characteristic "verticality" of the towns on the Amalfi Coast, the higher part of the town is referred to as 'Praiano Vettica' and the lower part, closest to the sea, as 'Praiano Inferiore'
