Minori, meaning small in Italian, is a tiny place between Salerno and Amalfi on the Coast. It's neighbour Maiori is much bigger in size and population, but personally i prefered Minori.
The reason i stayed here was mainly the cheap accomodation and good connection to all other places along the coast. Furthermore you can explore a wide culinary range in Minori and you will find the beach a bit less propped than in other places.

Where to stay
Hotel Europe - This place might not be the fanciest, but offers the best connection around the coast by Bus, because the stop is directly in front of the Door. The rooms have very good air conditioning, which is definitly a plus. The hotel is family run and quite old, therefore the matresses gives less comfort. Otherwise the room i had was very clean and offered a Balcony, with sunshine in the morning. The price for a night, including a huge breakfast buffet was 44€ (booked through air bnb)

What to do
Sentiero dei Limoni - This route is a very famous hiking track between lemon fields and ancients parts of Minori, leading through the mountains to Maiori. It is most beautiful in early summer, when the trees are covered up in lemons. During late August, most of them are already harvested and indeed the steep steps all way up are quite a challenge during hot days. So i went quite early in the morning, since the air is nicest to breathe and the view quite clear. If you can, you should try a fresh pressed lemon juice on the way, to regain your energy. The path starts north-east in Minori and ends close to the Church in Maiori and it will take approx. 2h to walk.
Daytrips - from this spot you can easily take a boat or bus to visit Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and other places along the coast

Where to eat:
Sal de Riso - Rated one of the best Confectionery in Italy, this place will go beyond your imagination of cakes. I have literally never seen as many pastries as in the counters here. They will have any chocolate tarte, cream pastry and fruit tartlets that you can possibly wish for. Furthermore they offer big cakes in the fridges as well and a big selection of homemade icecream. Unfortunately i am allergic to milk and egg and the only dairy free product is sorbet (the white figue is delicious), but otherwise anyone else will get really happy here.
