There are so many wonders in Minori.
The town is connected by a solid foundation as ancient as the Villa Romana. Minori offers a treasure trove of special places such as the spa, delicious patisseries, a pastaio, an incredible macelleria, all of exceptional quality and reputation .They even have unearthed Roman ruins!
Come take a walk with me to my favourite highlights of Minori!
TIME TO EXPLORE
LA PANETTORIA, LA MACELLERIA (near Villa Romana) & IL PASTAIO
Everything in Minori is fresh and of the finest quality. Visit the Panettoria where they can prepare you a panino with freshly baked bread straight out of the oven.
The Macelleria, where the butcher cuts the meat to your liking but also takes pleasure in recommending the specials.
Minori is also home to an authentic Pastaio where pasta is made by hand and is made with love ❤️ . Fresh cannelloni, gnocchi, ravioli, you name it they have it and the taste is out of this world! Here you can have a sneak peek and see how pasta is manufactured as well as purchasing some to soothe the palate.
PLACES TO MANGIARE ( to eat)
Places to eat in Minori range from local trattorias, cafes , restaurants to sweet patisseries.
Here I can recommend my top places where I always dine and receive the top service and mouth watering cibo.
GIARDINIELLO ( restaurant)
Hidden under a grove of lemons and bougainvillea in the centre of town, Giardiniello, the garden, is a peaceful place to enjoy the fresh produce and local recipes of Minori. Try pasta frutti di mare it's divine!
GAMBARDELLA (patisserie, restaurant, bar)
Gambardella is an authentic place where the locals like to hang out, and we all know that the locals know what's best. Gambardella make the best of Amalfi Coast's natural resources, which results in high quality and original products. Limoncello always goes down a treat!
SAL DI RISO ( patisserie, bar, restaurant, pizzeria, gelateria)
I am having an affair with his place! They offer a rich assortment of desserts and sweets as well as happy hour with aperol spritz and a tray of delights. Sal Di Riso is aesthetically pleasing and you feel like you've stepped out of a page from La dolce vita magazine.
TIME TO RELAX
OPTIUM SPA 😎
Minori is also home to Optium spa- a place where you can truly slow down on your holiday and be treated like royalty. There are two spas that run at different times of the year. There is a spa on the beach which is opens in the summer time and the other is a Roman bath with that underground ( open in Winter) Why not make an enquiry with Lorenzo, I'm sure he will make you feel at home.
For all those history lovers 🏟
Hidden from the tourist eye, here in the centre of Minori lies an undiscovered treasure trove of Roman antiquities. The Villa Romana, an archeological site of 1st century, stood in the bay of Minori as a seaside villa. This site has recently been excavated and the way the villa has been restored and preserved is quite remarkable. It almost looks brand new! The Villa Romana in Minori is a hidden gem on the Amalfi Coast that costs NOTHING to go in to explore just a generous donation. The archeologists have done such an incredible job with their excavation and also the Minori community for opening it up for the public to see is such a wonderful honour.
So there you have it! The treasures of Minori and I'm sure there is more yet be discovered! 💕😍 #visitminori
