Lovely Little Raito: Your Secret Paradise on the Amalfi Coast

Hey there, fellow travelers! Are you tired of squeezing into crowded tourist spots on the Amalfi Coast? Well, I have a secret paradise for you – Lovely Little Raito! This hidden gem is often overlooked by the masses who are too busy chasing between Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi. If you’re the type of traveler who likes to jam-pack their itinerary and squeeze in all the top tourist spots, then Raito might not be for you. But if you’re looking for a slower, more relaxed way of experiencing the Amalfi Coast, Raito is a perfect match!

Raito is part of Vietri Sul Mare, the first pearl of the Amalfi Coast. It’s a small village with fantastic views, stunning architecture, and romantic, with  network of walkways. With a population of just a little over 1000. The village is small but there are two mini markets, a bar, a butcher, and a pharmacy. 

Note the shops have limited opening times.

It’s a bit of an off-the-beaten-path destination, but very easy to get to, so it’s time to ditch the tourist traps and explore Raito. The village will definitely reward you with scenic sunsets, pastel-hued panoramas in the evening, and some wonderful walks and hikes.

With every turn, you’ll discover hidden corners adorned with vibrant ceramics, quaint cobblestone alleys, and brightly coloured flowers. Narrow, winding steps with arched tops will transport you to the old-world charm of Raito. All of this abundance nestled between stunning views of the sea and mountains.
