The village of Minori: the best preserved Roman Villa of Amalfi Coast
What to know about Minori : attractions and possible tours from Minori
Its original name was Reginna Minor, to distinguish it from the bigger neighbouring town of Reghinna Major (now Maiori), so maybe it was founded by the same Etruscans that founded Maiori. Here are the most important remains from Roman period on the Amalfi Coast. A 2,500 sq.meters Otium Villa (“villa for leisure”) belonging to a rich family built between the 1st century BC and the 1st century AD, now a location for summer music and theatre festivals.
During the Medieval Maritime republic there was an arsenal and a shipyard in Minori.                                              
Before the advent of tourism, its main economy was based on handmade paper, leather tanneries (in the 16th century), lemon exports (still very important), the production of handmade pasta ("Ndunderi" and other types of pasta are still produced to this day) .
The town is small and lovely, elegant, at the feet of Ravello which is reachable by taking an ancient path in about one hour. It is one of the ‘blossoming towns’ of Italy (http://www.comunifioriti.com/), so there are installations of crafts on the theme of flowers scattered all over the town…
