The Campania region
Campania region is the beginning of the 'mezzogiorno'. Translating as the 'midday' the phrase evokes the sun-baked south. And Campania - with its ancient Greek and Roman towns, rumbling volcanoes and glittering blue coastline, at times evokes Classical Greece as much as modern Italy. You could be a million miles from bureaucratic and businesslike Milan.
Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western Civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.
It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizeable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragonese culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1860 when it became part of the new state Italy.
The capital city of Campania is Naples. Campania is rich in culture, especially in regards to gastronomy, music, architecture, archaeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fortunate countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Cilento Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.
Minori is a lovely, well located and not crowded seaside-town at the centre of an Amalfi Coast’s wide cove. Broadly, its mazy past had been following the same course of the neighbouring towns of Maiori, Amalfi and Ravello.
Because of its delightful climate, Minori was the summer residence of the Romans. By the way, we recommend a visit to the Roman Villa’s museum (close to the bus stop). It’s usually open from 9 a.m. till sunset.
Minori is easily reachable by bus, from each town of the Coast. You can also catch the boat and the ferry, from Amalfi or from Salerno (Piazza della Concordia or Molo Manfredi). The timetable might change depending on the season.
From Minori, it takes on average 15 minutes by bus to get to Amalfi. It is also very close to Maiori (the ideal place for young people who look for fun). If in your family there are youngsters and you would rather not give up your restfulness, Minori is a good trade-off. In addition, staying in Minori is generally cheaper than staying at the better known resorts of the Amalfi Coast, which are just a reasonable bus ride away.
Minori is also the place to willingly enjoy in September, for its multi-day “GustaMinori Festival” with food, drink, art and entertainment. Actually, Minori is well appreciated by entire Coast for its cookery. Any kind of hand-made pasta should be tasted, so lemon specialties, and cakes stuffed with local flavors. Restaurant L'Arsenale and Pasticceria De Riso are two landmarks that shouldn't be ignored by the gourmet.
The inhabitants of Minori are well-known for their slow-life, calmness and their strong faith. It would be also interesting to visit the Basilica of Saint Trofimena. It is a typical example of a late 17th century building. It was rebuilt in place of the old Romanesque church.
The seafront is so tiny and so enchanting. It makes for a very romantic holiday and, even if you are not actually sleeping in Minori, we do recommend a visit at dusk -- very enjoyable.
