Things to see in Praiano and Conca dei Marini

Praiano is a town that is not too distant from Positano, whereas Conca is a little further afield. Between them stands Fiordo di Furore, a very tranquil and romantic place, with a beach of coloured pebbles. From both Praiano and Fiordo, the Footpath of the Gods is accessible on foot or by bus. Keep in mind that you will have to climb 2,500 steps to reach the footpath that passes at 2000 feet (600 metres) above sea level. Be sure not to overestimate your ability, and if you have a doubt take the bus. The most interesting sites in Praiano and Conca dei Marini are noted below.

1

Praiano: San Gennaro V.M. Church

The church stands on the main street, instantly recognisable with its yellow-gold dome that shines in the sun, its majestic and warm façade that invites you in and the bronze door with its low reliefs depicting holy scenes. The floor of the Church of San Gennaro is tiled and the interior is very refined.

2

Hidden in the hills of the Amalfi Coast, this very small village can be found at the mouth of the river between Conca and Praiano. Its port and houses line the shore and reflect on the inviting water. Here, you can admire the old mill and papermaking factory.

It is the unique, eerie emerald green light that defines this cave. In order to get to the Grotta dello Smeraldo, you are required to take a lift then continue the tour in a boat. In 2018 it costs 5 euros. For a 10-euro supplement you can do the boat excursion from Amalfi.
