Does anyone know if there is free public car parking in Praiano?

'looks like a small town so I can't answer specifically, but expect to pay for public parking just about everywhere.

Nice area, by the way! Tell us about it!

There's a limited amount of free parking. Are you staying at a hotel in Praiano? Most of them have small parking lots for their guests. Some of the pay parking is not convenient to many things.

We will be staying in a villa on the edge of Praiano. It’s on the Praiano side of the first road tunnel when you’re heading for Amalfi. We are two families with two cars and one parking space at the villa. Any information would be more than welcome

We're going to stay in Praiano from April 12-19 and were wondering the same thing. We have secured a parking space from the owner of the Villa Angiolina but have no idea where it's at. We were wondering how hard it will be to get to restaurants and to Positano at that time of the year?

Any help will be appreciated!

Zeldadune,

There are plenty of restaurants in Praiano (walking distance) and the SITA bus can bring you to Amalfi and Positano

Dear DublinCasy,

Is the villa where you're staying right on the SS163 Costiera Amalfitana Road? If it's on a road just off the SS163, you just might be able to park for free. In downtown Praiano near the Municipio/City Hall one needs to pay for parking as well as other popular or residential areas. Otherwise, the very nice person at the Praiano Tourist Office said that there are more free public parking spaces than metered ones.

Certain residential areas of Praiano reserve a string of parking spaces for residents only. The residential areas outline parking spaces for residents only with blue lines. These parking spaces are near a sign with a "P" (white against blue I believe) and a certain letter code by "Solo Parcheggio." Nearby spaces outlined in white lines near a "P" sign means that one needs to pay for parking. The sign will usually indicate how much you need to pay per hour like €2+ an hour. You can go to one of the "P" parking machines and like a meter, the machine will take your money (coins come in handy) and give you a receipt which will indicate until what time you can remain in the parking space. The receipt should be left on the dashboard so that local police can check the parking status.

Otherwise, usually people park in the unmarked areas and then walk to the popular areas so as to avoid paying parking fees. Even in areas near the marina, you can find free parking. It's usually easier to find free parking away from the marina and beaches and away from popular residential areas.

The Praiano Tourist Office can answer questions in English, German, and French. They're open Mon-Sat 9am-1pm in the off season. After March 20, they'll be open Mon-Sat 9am-1pm and 4:30pm-8:30pm:

Villa Angiolina must be a private villa which doesn't publish its information/location at least with the Praiano Tourist Office. It sounds like its nearest beach is the marina (not Cala di Gavitella) which is a more popular area with restaurants and shops.

Many people use the orange Flavio Gioia buses to get around town and to Positano. It costs €1 payable to the driver and some end up using the bus more than driving:

I'm sorry, but I wrote some incorrect information about parking spaces in Praiano. The parking spaces outlined with blues lines are public parking spaces. Parking in public spaces around town costs €0.50/hour in the Winter off season and €2.00/hour during the peak season. The parking spaces outlined with white lines are free to residents who live in the area.

At the Marina di Praia, it's €2/hour to park a car and €1.50/hour for scooters.

Buona Fortuna...
