Travel Tips for Atrani
Atrani - smallest village in Italy
Atrani, situated at the bottom of the Dragone valley, is the twin town of Amalfi, residence of the Nobles. It is also the smallest village in Italy. In 15th Century the rebel "Masaniello" was born here and later as a fuggitive lived in the grotto that still bears his name.
Piazza Umberto I
This beautiful, almost totally enclosed square
is a twin to that of Capri, but often used by the film-makers as a substitute. Ignored by mass tourism its an idyllic place to unwind at a cafe here with a drink and to taste typical cakes " PASTICCIOTTI".
Nearly at Amalfi
The walk to Amalfi from Atrani did not take long - only about 20 mins but we kept stopping to look at the architecture of the houses and views from the coast once we 'd climbed up out of the old houses and onto the balcony path around the cliff.
It almost looks impossible to squeeze throught this alleway don't you think, and i liked the lions on the dorrstep of the house on the left. The houses this side dropping down into Amalfi looked more well maintained too.
Tiny village, away from the tourist crowd ...
Atrani, a hidden gem in case you want to escape from the tourist crowd.
From Amalfi it's a 20 min. walk up- and downhill on a foothpath with LOTS of stairs! The spectacular views on the bay and on the small town as you approach it, are a perfect reward.
The panorama of Atrani is very suggestive. All the houses built one over the other, looks like the Nativity Scenery.
