Maiori Holidays

Maiori is perhaps best known for owning the Amalfi Coast’s longest stretch of unbroken sandy beachfront. There’s much more to this seafront town than just a beach, though – you'll also find ancient architecture, lovely local restaurants and a laid-back atmosphere that draws visitors back time and time again. 

The town was founded during the Roman Empire, when the fashion was for the aristocracy to have a villa by the coast. Today, you can still see some of these grand properties, with the Castello di Torro Plano being the most popular. This romantic castellated ruin is a considerable climb into the mountains behind Maiori, but is well worth a visit for the spectacular views. If you want to explore more of the Amalfi Coast, there is easy access by road to Amalfi, Positano and neighbouring Minori. You can also catch a ferry over to the glamorous island of Capri.

When to go

Like many coastal spots in Italy, the Amalfi Coast tends to be busiest during July and August, when you'll find tourists as well as Italians enjoying the hot weather and summer festivals that take place. A good time to go is May-June and September-October, when you can enjoy fewer crowds and good weather. Although the Amalfi Coast is mostly a summer destination, visitors during the winter can still enjoy quite mild temperatures and normally dry weather. However not all restaurants and shops remain open out of season.

Visa Information

At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.

Tipping

You don’t have to leave a tip in Italy – most Italians don’t tip for restaurant meals, bar drinks, taxi rides or hair and beauty treatments. However if you do leave a tip, you might receive quicker service.
