Walking through the village literally takes us back in time. Suffice it to consider that , out of just over 2,000 inhabitants , there are about 20 churches : the best way to visit them is to go from one to the other through the medieval alleys that smell of history and good local food. Do not miss the churches that date back to 1400 AD, all perfectly preserved.
Of particular charm are the steps leading from one level of the hamlet to another. The ancient blends with the modern and, thanks to a municipal redevelopment project, artists and painters embellish the alleys with open-air works of art, many of which represent local beauties.

The great peculiarity of the coast is the exposure : the sand is kissed by the sun all day , from the ‘ dawn to dusk .
On board your own boat you can easily reach every beach and natural beauty that Praiano offers. A dip is a must to:
