Atrani is an isolated fishing village, away from the noise and bustle of other locations; it is also the smallest town in Italy. The distinctive white houses whose balconies are overflowing with flowers are built on the slopes of the surrounding mountains among the lemon orchards and reach down to the sea; in fact the last row of houses is built right behind the sea. The ancient church of San Salvatore de’ Birecto (century XI) stands beneath the Piazzetta, the central square that whose lovely setting brings to mind the well known square in Capri.
