Praiano is a fishermen’s village, clinging to a rocky promontory. This landing was already known to the ancient Italic populations with the name of Plagianum, at the time of the Maritime Republics, and it was chosen by the Venetian Doges as their summer residence.

Like all the other towns on the Amalfi Coast, Praiano is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is characterised by its very long stairways that lead down to the small coves among the rocks. The best known and most popular places are Positano, Praiano and Amalfi. The Grand Hotel Tritone is located halfway between Positano and Amalfi, in the heart of the Amalfi Coast and is an elegant 4-star hotel in Praiano.

It is just the same sea where legend has it that Ulysses met the sirens, mythological creatures with enchanting singing voices.
