The Campania region
One can make trips to Pompeii , Vesuvius , Cumae , Hercolano , Stabiae , Capri , Sorrento , Positano , Amalfi , Ravello and Paestum, all of which are in the within the region of Campania . The entire area is full of interesting and historical places.
The warm Mediterranean climate enables one to enjoy any of these excursions, or simply spend a day to relax in the sun, visit the wonderful shops, meander through the narrow little streets and absorb the Italian way of life....which is pure theatre in itself !
The region is known for it's unspoilt beaches, on some of which there is a plethora of small restaurants. Most of which specialise in both fresh fish, vegetables and local dishes - quite simply there is something here for everyone!
The Amalfi Coast area
The Amalfi Coast / Praiano area
Firstly, it has to be said that Praiano has maintained the warmth and intimacy of it's small fishing and farming community, it is a village reknowned for it's friendly atmosphere and lacks the sophistication of Positano and the tourist attractions of Amalfi; albeit these two neighbouring towns are only a stone's throw away.
It is advisable to take advantage of the local buses whenever possible, as parking can be difficult and driving on these narrow, hairpin bends is definitly best left to the Italians.
The public transport system is both cheap and efficient, and the bus stop is nearby.
The nearest beach ,“La Praia”, is 300 metres away from the apartment, and can be reached either by foot or by car. The ten minute walk down to this beach is a breathtakingly beautiful experience... in every way!
There is also a private access to the sea by means of a quantity of steep steps carved into the cliff face - this is well worth the effort, but not for the faint hearted!
On the small beach there is a boat rental company from which one can catch a water taxi to the local towns, and the beaches that are only accessible from the water, one can arrange fishing trips, excursions to the Grotto Smeraldo, or simply to hire privately for the day.
Praiano is also renowned for both it's Scuba diving centre, it's local ceramics and it's " hotspot ", the Africana discotheque; unique in it's setting, a vast grotto within the cliff face - most appealing to all ages!
The selection of small local shops are all within walking distance and the ' family run ' grocery shop not only stocks a colourful selection of locally grown and fresh produce, but also provides a very popular spot in which to catch up on all the gossip of the day!
