Maiori is the largest center of the Amalfi Coast, where most hotel accommodation is concentrated thanks to the space and its beach, the longest on the whole coast. The first, a real navy watchdog watched by an ancient watchtower, is Erchie with its typical beach and the charming seaside restaurants. We really entered the territory of the ancient Amalfi Republic. Capo d'Orso that closes to the Amalfi and Ravello views, is the wildest part of the coast, inhabited only by gulls most of the year. After some curves between rocks and Mediterranean scrub over the blue sea you get to Maiori. A terrible flood swept away the inhabited center in the 1950s and the ancient nucleus remained only the striking high part. Numerous monuments, churches, convoys, the inevitable Towers of sight. Very nice the main course entirely taken up and became pedestrian shopping island. Among the natural beauties, the caves of Annunziata, Acqua Sulfurea and Pannona. Maiori is renowned for sweets, some quality ovens and limoncello factories are in operation.
