Atrani is a charming town near Amalfi that’s virtually remained a hidden secret. You’ll find a delightful beach here tucked in between towering mountains and historic buildings. Spiaggia di Atrani is one of the smallest towns in Italy, both in terms of population and area, and as there are surprisingly few tourists who make their way here in the summer, it continues to be a hidden gem on the Amalfi Coast.
