Welcome to Maiori: a lovely seaside resort

Maiori was one of the most developed towns of the Amalfi Coast at the time of "The Republic of Amalfi". The economic strength of Maiori largely came from the town's strong fleet of ships, and wide harbor. Commerce and production of goods flourished until the 1268, the year of the Pisani invasion. The Pisani attacked all the main towns along the Amalfi Coast that year. The town of Maiori has fallen, and risen again, many times in its history. In 1348 the people of Maiori suffered a plague, but the town recovered, and only a few years later Maiori was a wealthy producer of silks, and wool, which were shipped all over the Mediterranean Sea. Hard times came again for Maiori in 1528, when the Spanish fought for dominance of the Amalfi Coast. Despite it's difficult history, nowadays, Maiori is a characteristic seaside resort. Maiori offers everything it takes for its guests to enjoy a relaxing, and pleasurable holiday on the Amalfi Coast.

Welcome to Minori with its beautiful churches

Minori is a small and pleasant Amalfi Coast sea-town. Its name derives from the ancient latin name "Rheginna Minor" that came from the river Rheginna, which still runs through the valley of Minori. Like other major towns of the Amalfi Coast Minori was founded by ancient roman aristocrats who chose the place for its beauty and mild climate, and built their luxurious villas here. Minori soon started to produce paper, liquors and other lemon specialties, since lemons are a typical product of this area. This production is still a main activity of the town and is carried on with strict respect of the genuine local tradition. If you come to Minori make sure you visit the ancient roman villa and the Basilica of Santa Trofimena, and the churchs of Santa Lucia, San Gennaro and San Michele as well, good examples of southern italian architecture.
