Maratea is a really cool little hilltop town about three hours south of the Amalfi Coast. In July the small town can get very busy, mainly Italians (always a good sign!); however, the rest of the year it is very quiet for Italian standards. We loved everything Maratea has to offer; the stunning beaches, the winding streets, the amazing food and friendly locals. It is a unique little town that is definitely worth a few nights' visit!
Where to stay?
B&B La Torretta
La Torretta is located in the town of Cersuto, which is about a 15 minute drive from the main streets of Maratea. The hosts were so lovely and helpful, and made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived + our room was super cute and we had our own private terrace with views overlooking the coast. Wish we stayed an extra night!
Eating + drinking
Maratea has one of our favourite restaurants in Italy; Taverna Rovita located at Via Rovita 13. This restaurant is relatively inexpensive and offers terrific fresh local produce, homemade pasta and a friendly atmosphere; well worth the visit! Make sure you ask your waiter for their recommendations. Visit their website here for more information regarding the restaurant or if you want to make a reservation.
