Part of Italy’s remarkable Amalfi Coast, the ancient fishing village of Praiano, is slightly more unassuming than some of its more famous neighbours, but still an absolute delight. Its whitewashed houses line the lush ridge of Monte Sant’Angelo, and whilst there is no centre as such, it is a lovely seaside resort with plenty of restaurants, bars and glitzy hotels to make the most of the superb southern sun. With its own beach, the small enchanting Marina di Praia is surrounded by imposing cliffs making it feel private and secluded. Here you can simply soak up the sun on loungers, dive, take out a boat or dine at the lovely beachside restaurant. Praiano’s baroque cathedral, decorated with majolica tiles is a must-see. There are several side chapels and an attractive 18th century floor. Surprisingly, for a small peaceful town, Praiano has a lively nightlife including a renowned club on the seashore, which has been there since the 1960s.
