The Romans created modern culture as we know it, then the Italians spent another 2000 years perfecting it. For your chance to really relax think a self catering holiday home for your upcoming trip to Italy. There would be few better places to select than accommodation in Praiano. This is down to the fact that this part of Italy really can offer any alternative: from peace and tranquillity, to an abundance of activities in and around the town to keep all totally entertained.
A world of Gucci chic blended with the traditional. Where opera resonates and violins harmonise with the breathtaking scenery. A land of Renaissance and the Fathers of science that created the world we know today. A place of winter sports and the excellent cuisine you’ll need to provide the calories to burn. Italy has more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other place on Earth and your holidays in Praiano should provide you with access to plenty of them. This is the perfect terrain to undertake rigorous hiking expeditions. Alternatively, bird watching, photography and landscape painting may well appeal to you even more.
Taking the keys to a Praiano holiday home, a self catering apartment or villa is a dream come true in itself. Take to the café and stir your mind, getting into the hang of the laid back Italian culture before planning your future days. Positano and Amalfi are in shooting distance for the busy lifestyle. The sun practically never sets on Praiano. A journey to Pompeii will put your entire existence into perspective; the huddled remnants of people gasping for air as the dominant figure of Mt. Vesuvius churned up its bowels onto the land. The wild dogs that roam its streets to this day are direct descendents of the pets who knew better than to hang around two millennia ago. A land of legends, at Campi Flegrei the fabled Icarus is reported to have made his death plunge. By ferry you can get to Capri, a dazzlingly beautiful island, the torture museum in itself is worth the trip but you will be met by busy beaches of bathers too.
Praiano enjoys the longest length of sun each day than any other location in Italy, thanks to its western position. Of course, in the south of Italy there are plenty of scorching days and warm nights to enjoy from your accommodation in Praiano. You may not even need to bring a jacket in your luggage if you embark during the summer. Expect temperatures to touch the nineties degrees Fahrenheit during the hottest months and not fall out of the sixties during the winter.
If booking some wonderful self catering accommodation in Praiano is right for you then you would be best off booking a flight to Naples Airport (NAP). Alitalia, British Airways, Easyjet and plenty of charter flights depart for this airport from the UK. You can choose to leave from a good selection of airports and these include Liverpool (LPL), Luton (LTN), London Heathrow (LHR) and Edinburgh (EDI).
