Amalfi Coast: Minori or Maiori

Jump to last reply

Making a return trip to the Amalfi Coast in June 2016 with spouse. Will have car and spend 4 nights in Amalfi. Request input form Fodorites about additional 2 or 3 night stay in Minori, Maiori (or maybe even Cetara).

Booked room at Hotel Floridiana in Amalfi over lodging in Positano because wife is recuperating from cardiac situation. Feel that fewer steps in Amalfi over Positano will be beneficial, but hopefully by June 2016, her condition will not be problematic.

Wanted to remain in the area but venture out for the remaining 2 or 3 nights to explore the local culture or maybe go "more local". I certainly recognize that I will be a tourist, but desirous of feeling a little more detached from the tourist scene. We enjoy going to the "around the corner" restaurants and frequenting local bars to get the real town feel.

Someone posted that Maiori may be a little larger, but another stated that Maiori is not as pretty. Which has the most charm? If either???

FYI, we are in our 60s, and swimming or sunning on beach is not a factor; however, we love people watching, so we do enjoy sitting at a beachside eatery and/or in a piazza, with beer/cocktail/wine or even coffee.

All comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
