Atrani Painting

Atrani is situated between sheer cliffs and the turquoise crystalline sea, near the so-called Valley of the Dragon. The village used to be summer residence of noble families of Amalfi. Still quiet and picturesque, its winding streets have remained largely unchanged.

The beauty of Atrani lies in the scenic beach and the intricate maze of lanes and houses, built practically on top of each other.

Today Atrani maintains its distinct fishing town atmosphere. The main entrance to the town starts from the beach, and from there, the traditional houses climb up the steep mountain valley, intertwined with gardens and lemon terraces.
