Maiori is the main village of the valley of Tramonti, a modern resort with the largest beach along the Amalfi coast, making this location very popular with families. The original name was ReghinnaMajor” to distinguish it from the nearby Reghinna Minor, and it is basically certain that the founding of Maiori and other centers alongthe coast followed the alternating fortunes of the local populations.
They were first colonized by the Etruscans around VII century, then by the Romans, they formed autonomous settlements after the fall of the Roman Empire of the West, and finally joined in the confederation of the Amalfitan State. Between 830 and 840 Maiori was the mercantile heart of the new state, heart of the Greater Arsenals of the Admiralty, the Customs, and The Salt Warehouses. 
One of the main attractions is the Norman Tower (Torre Normanna) which is the biggest and oldest of the Amalfi Coast Towers. Built between 1250 and 1300, it was used to sight and fight enemy ships. Today it has become a  famous restaurant where you can eat local food just by the sea.
Over the years Maiori became very popular for the Mediterranean food:  Maiori has one foot on land and the other in a boat, the diet of a fishing fox, that mixes garden produce with the fragrance of the sea: a traditional but eclectic way of cooking that is open to new experiments: endive, chicory, spring cabbage.. together with nogli, pezzenti (pork sausage) and aromatic herbs combine in the ” menestra ‘mmaretata“; fresh broad beans and thick slices of salami; “casatiello”, the typical Easter bread made with pork fat and pepper are a must.
Ideal place for families, young people and couples. Maiori offers different kinds of attractions to satisfy all needs: relaxation, gastronomic itineraries, beaches and beautiful sea, natural walks, restaurants and pubs, nightclubs and fun!
