Villa Romana: Authentic Amalfi Cuisine

The town of Minori has been well renowned for pasta making since medieval times and since the 17th-century invention of the “‘ngegni,” a device which made mass pasta production possible. This turned every available public and private space in Minori, even the sea-front promenades, into an outdoor display of fresh-made pasta drying in the sun: macaroni, ‘ndunderi, cocce, cannarocini, vermicelli, and tagliarelli.

This gastronomically oriented town, set in a beautiful inlet, is the perfect base from which to explore the gorgeous Amalfi Coast. It is also the perfect place for an Amalfi culinary vacation. You will not only visit Minori’s treasures such as the ruins of the 1st-century Villa Romana, but also explore the Coast’s best offerings: Pompeii, the excavation of a town buried by a volcanic eruption 2000 years ago; Ravello, the most poetic cliff-top town of romantic gardens; and Amalfi, the charming, cobble stoned, seaside town with a magnificent cathedral.

Well, now that we are home, I can tell you it was very simple to get cash in Minori...there was a bank with a 24 hour machine just a short walk away, as was everything else. What a wonderful learning vacation we had...We can't say enough. And anyone who thinks this is the wrong season to go there is horribly mistaken. The weather was like our spring, and there were no crowds to contend with. The people there were amazing. Exio, Sandra, Guiliano and the family and staff at the Villa Romana. We felt like sponges absorbing all the information, culture and cuisine we could get for our senses. Thankfully, the four pounds I gained from the wonderful food have gone, but the memories never will. We took over 3000 photos...a lot of them are of the food preparation and serving...as well as of the amazing views taken on our many hikes. Thanks so much...we can't say enough. My husband, who has captive audiences all day long, has been raving non-stop ever since. Ian and Sharon W., Ontario, Canada
