This City is a spot to escape the crowds and get some rest. The city is packed with alleyways, altars and staircases that rise up the mountainside, Praiano was once the favorite holiday destination of the aristocracy of this region. The church would be the primary feature, but for sure Torre A Mare (the Tower of the Sea) is one of the main attraction that offers magnificent viewpoints.
