"Atrani" Atrani by sandysmith

Atrani Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 47 photos

Atrani, the twin town of Amalfi, often overlooked for its bigger more famous neighbour.
Less touristic than Amalfi its quieter and more relaxed, a great place to unwind in its little piazza. It is also reputed to be the smallest village in Italy - so you just have to add it to your list of must see places.

Atrani is situated at the base of the narrow Valley of Dragone with its mountain villages. Scala is one of those villages and where we were staying. A 40 - 50 minute walk saw us descend into Atrani to meander around its quaint streets and Piazza Umberto and admire its churches before going onto to Amalfi. a most delightful diversion for an hour or so.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:quieter resort than Amalfi with a free beach
  • Cons:beach crowded at weekends with locals
  • In a nutshell:delightful place to idle away an hour or two

    A lovely city in a spectacular setting, with a beach too. All that is missing is something to drink.... Oops, I see the wine bar now too to make it all complete. ;=)

    STUNNING pictures - they say more than any words! And you are right: Atrani is more quiet than Amalfi. I will never forget this wonderful free beach :-))
