A village overlooking the sea, among churches and lemon groves
More compact than its neighbour Maiori, Minori is a picturesque little village. Immersed in the aroma of lemons and the blue sky and sea, the promenade takes you to the Basilica di S. Trofimena, the most iconic of the thirty or so churches in the village. In the westernmost part of the town, you can view the most significant ancient ruins along the coast.
We recommend organising a guided tour of the 1st-century-AD Roman Villa, an example of contemporary patrician architecture. It was constructed from particularly valuable material that arrived exclusively by sea. Inside, you can admire remarkable paintings and frescoes.
To delight your palate as well as your eyes and nose, you can stop at one of the many pastry shops to sample local delicacies of the Amalfi Coast. It is no coincidence that Minori is also known as the City of Taste.
Don’t miss at least part of the Sentiero dei Limoni (Lemon Path), a pleasant walk through fragrant lemon groves with stunning views. This 9-kilometre route takes you to Maiori, between ascents and descents interspersed with 400 steps.
